How to Crochet a Heart onto a Hair Band

With Valentine's Day coming up, I thought it'd be fun to make a few Valentine's day accessories, including this heart hair band. It was so much fun and easy to make that I wanted to share this pattern with all of you! <3


Hair Elastics
Yarn (I used Bernat Waverly's Worsted Weight in Princess Pink)
Crochet Hook Sized for Yarn (I used G/4.25MM)

SS: Slip Stitch
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet

Row 1: Inside a Magic Circle, 9 SC

It should look like this so far:

Row 2: SS into 1st SC, 2 HDC into 2nd SC, 1 HDC into same stitch, but this time also put your hook through the center of the hair elastic, 2 more HDC into same stitch

Your hair elastic should now be attached to the heart in one place:

1 SS in each of the next 2 SC, 1 HDC (this is the point of the heart), 1 SS in each of the next 2 SC, 5 HDC in next stitch making sure to grab hair elastic on third HDC

The hair elastic is now connected to the heart in two places:

SS into Magic Circle, then break yarn leaving about a five inch tail.

To finish off, pull the tail from the front of the work to the back through the Magic Circle. Use that and the tail from pulling the Magic Circle closed to tie a final knot around the hair elastic:

Trim ends and you're done! You've now made yourself a hair accessory to really love.
