Conley Headband – Free Crochet Pattern

The Conley Headband adds warmth and a touch of elegance to any outfit. This headwrap was created to keep the ears warm, while still looking stylish. The stitch pattern makes this headband modern and it can be stitched up in an afternoon or weekend!

I was so honored that this headband was originally featured on The Hook Nook blog, and now I am so excited that now the Conley Headband will be here on my blog as well!

You never know when inspiration will hit you, I came up with this design one night when I was in bed, trying to fall asleep, haha. I was so excited about this design that I had a hard time falling asleep:)

I am obsessed with how this headband turned out. I love the contrast between the texture of the headband and the band wrapped around it.

Not to mention I love to wear this headband when it’s cold outside and my hair is either in a bun or ponytail (which lets face it, that’s most days of the week). This headband is also super quick to work up. It’s a great afternoon or weekend project!

But one of my favorite parts about this design is that it’s a stash buster! This project uses only a small amount of worsted weight yarn and I assume that most of us have this in our stash.

I had some of Lion Brand’s Heartland in Katmai in my yarn collection that I used for this headband. But don’t be afraid to use what ever you find in your stash!
