Introducing the Team Spirit Crochet Headband
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my sports teams, especially football. I grew up tailgating at Purdue football games and watching the Colts play on Sundays.
Now, I’m working to pass on my love for sports to my own kids, and what better way than to show some team spirit on game day! We get into our t-shirts and jerseys, and now I love that can throw on a matching headband for some added flair.
Someday, when my daughters are old enough to keep them on for more than five seconds, they’ll be able to enjoy them too!
I want everyone to be able to support their team, no matter how old. There is a size for everyone from infants to adults, including directions to make your own custom size.

How to Make This Crochet Headband
Main Color, ch 6
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc to end. Turn. (5)
Row 2: ch 1, FPsc in each st. Turn. (5)
Row 3: ch 1, sc in each st. Turn. (5)
Repeat Rows 2-3 until your headband measures the length specified for your size. End on Row 3, this will be the WS so be sure to turn before starting the border. If changing colors for border, fasten off and weave in ends.
Add the Border
If using an alternate color for the border, join yarn in a corner of the short end. If left-handed, join on the left corner, if right-handed join on the right corner.
Ch 1, sc in each st across to the end of the row, ch 1, sc in the same st.
Continue to sc around the entire piece, with a (sc, ch 1, sc) in each corner. Sl st to join.
Fasten off, leaving a tail that can be used to sew the headband together.
Sew the Headband
With the RS together line up the ends so that the foundation chain end and the last row are in line together.
Fold each end in half and match them together so that they overlap each other.
Using the tail from the border, sew through the ends from one side to the other, multiple times until they are secure.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Turn the headband right side out.
