Many of us are always looking for something to compliment our wardrobe, and perhaps even help fix our “bad hair days”. The Ava Headwrap is the perfect solution. A fun and cute accessory to compliment any outfit. This simple and free pattern will get you started in making your own! Let’s get started!
- Worsted weight yarn, in any color you wish (I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn)
- Size I/9 hook
- Small tapestry needle
- Small embroidery scissors
- Tape measure, or ruler
- MC – magic circle
- SC – single crochet
- DC – double crochet
- SLST – slip stitch
- CH – chain
- ST – stitch
- CH-SP – chain space
Each Ava Headwrap can be made in the following sizes (Baby, Toddler, Child, Teen/Small Adult, Teen/Large Adult)
- Baby – 12″ band (stretches up to 14″)
- Toddler – 14″ band (stretches up to 16″)
- Child – 16″ band (stretches up to 18″)
- Teen/Small Adult – 19″ band (stretches up to 21″)

Ava Headwrap Pattern
R1: CH 16, DC 3 in 4th ch from hook, DC 1 in last CH, CH 3 and turn
R2: DC 3 in first CH-SP and in every CH-SP after, DC 1 to the 3rd CH of the last turning chain, CH 3, turn
Repeat R2, until your band measures the number of inches, shown in the size chart. Fasten off, leave a long tail, and measure. In this tutorial I made a 12 inch band, folded it in half and measured again. It was exactly 6 inches. Remember that when you do this, at least in my case, it helps to keep the circumference almost exact. Just a tip.
Let’s make a headwrap!
Thread your needle into the yarn tail, fold in half and begin to sew across, through both top loops. I recommend the whip stitch (insert needle through the front, whip around and work through the front again, until the end of row) it’s faster and a bit more secure.
Now to make it pretty! YAY!
Thread your yarn through the center of the fold, and pull gently. This now becomes a bow. All you do at this point is wrap the yarn around the center, and sew ends into the wrapped yarn. Turn inside out and you now have, an Ava Headwrap!
