The Crossroads Headband crochet pattern uses simple cable stitching to create a super cute headband! You can use any worsted weight yarn for this headband. I used Red Heart Soft yarn for the sample pictured above. It’s a true worsted weight with a slight shine to it that I really like. 

The Crossroads Headband crochet pattern comes with instructions for just one size, but in the notes section it gives you instructions on how to adjust the length to fit anyone! Enjoy!

*I’ve just added a quick (on my phone quick) video tutorial! Go HERE to watch it!*

Pattern Notes

Starting chain does not count as first stitch unless stated otherwise within the pattern.
