A crochet head kerchief or bandana scarf is a fun project you can whip up in a short amount of time. There are some patterns that are super beginner friendly, and some are a little more advanced.
No matter what your experience level, there’s something for everyone in this list!
Before we look at the patterns, let’s talk a little bit about crochet bandana basics and tips.
Best Yarn for Crochet Bandanas
Cotton yarn is a great option for crochet bandanas because it holds its shape well and isn’t too hot.
A lot of times you’ll be wearing one of these bandanas in the warmer months and you don’t want a super warm yarn on your head making you sweat all over the place.
Besides the comfort level, cotton yarn also comes in lots of different colors so you have loads of options to customize your project.
Most patterns will call for worsted weight yarn, but always check the pattern notes before you buy to make sure.
You’ll need to use the same weight of yarn and same size crochet hook for the pattern to turn out correctly.
Here are some of my favorite places to get yarn:
Crochet Skills You’ll Need
For most crochet bandana patterns, you’ll just need to know some basic crochet stitches.
The most important ones to know are the chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and half double crochet.
You’ll also want to be familiar with terms like chain space, granny stitch, granny cluster, dc cluster (double crochet cluster) and similar crochet lingo.
Usually the pattern you’re using will explain what the more complicated sounding stitches are and how they’re completed.
And the good news is all those clusters and different sounding stitches are mostly just combinations of the basic stitches, so it’s really not as complicated as it sounds!
At the beginning of most crochet patterns, it will tell you if it’s in US crochet terms or UK crochet terms, and there should be a list of terms with abbreviations.
Here are some common abbreviations you’ll see:
- sl st – slip stitch
- sc – single crochet
- dc – double crochet
- hdc – half double crochet
- last st – last stitch
- first st – first stitch
- next st – next stitch
- rnd – round
- rep rnd – repeat round
- sp – space
- ch-2 space – chain 2 space
- first dc – first double crochet
- last dc – last double crochet
- first ch – first chain
- 2nd ch – second chain
Alright, now that we covered all that, let’s take a look at these stunning crochet bandana patterns!
