Velvetine’s Head Wrap – Free Crochet Pattern
Child Size 4 – 12 years
- Approx. 35 – 40 yds size 4 velvet yarn for band.
- Approx. 4 – 10 yds size 4 velevet yarn for hearts. I used *Bernat Baby Velvet
- US size H/5.0 mm and K/6.5mm crochet hook. I used my fave *Furls Odyssey
- Scissors – I love these *ones!
- Yarn Needle – I use these *Clover needles
Gauge isn’t as important as having the correct band length. Ensure you do enough rows to reach the recommended length or your preferred length.
The free version below is for a child size. Ideal fit for 19″- 20″ head circumference.
More sizes are available in the Premium PDF Pattern available on Etsy and Ravlery.
- US Terminology
- Velvet yarn has a lot of stretch, the pattern is designed to reflect this. If it seems small when you’re done, it should be! It will stretch nicely!
- ch – Chain
- sc – Single Crochet
- hdc – Half Double Crochet
- dc – Double crochet
- tr – Triple/Treble Crochet
- sl st – Slip Stitch

For child size: Ideal fit 19″ – 20″ head circumference. Band should reach 16″ long.
Row 1: hdc in the second ch from the hook and in each ch across. ch 1, turn (10 hdc).
Row 2: sc in each st across, ch1, turn (10 sc).
Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 until you’ve reached 16″.
Tie off, leaving long tail for closing the band.
Closing the Band
Hold the two ends together and weave tail through the top of the stitches on both sides. It can be help full to begin pulling tightly to cinch as you go.
Once you’ve weaved through all the stitches, pull tightly to cinch, and weave in all ends.
Large heart is made using K/6.5mm hook, and small heart is made using H/5.0mm hook. You can have fun and play around with various size hooks to get different size hearts too!
Pattern is the same for both hearts.
Start with magic circle, ch 1 (alternatively, ch4, and sl st to first ch, continue with Rnd 1 inside the chains.
Rnd 1: 15 hdc into the mc, sl st to first hdc, ch1 (15 hdc).
Rnd 2: 1 dc in same st as join and ch1, 4 tr in the next stitch, 2 dc in the next stitch, 1 hdc in the next 4 stitches, (1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dc) in the next stitch, 1 hdc in the next 4 stitches, 2 dc in the next stitch, 4 tr in the next stitch, 1 dc in the next stitch, ch 1 and sl st to same st as last dc. (25 STS).
Tie of leaving a long tail to sew on head wrap.
Attaching The Hearts
Weave in one tail of the hearts. Using remaining tail sew small heart onto large heart, secure and weave in end.
Using the tail from the large heart sew onto center of the gathered cinch of the head wrap. Be careful not to sew through both hearts (if your two hearts are different colours). Secure and weave in end.
