This Horned Headband is sure to be a hit at your Halloween Party, or just out on a cold winter day! Who says horns are just for Halloween anyway?


This pattern was originally designed as part of the Horned Villain Dress Blanket, but it is just too fun to not have it available to you by itself as well! I am including three sizes of headband instructions, child size, adult size, and large adult size. I suggest you measure the length of your piece at the end of row 1. I crochet fairly loose, so if you crochet tightly, you may want to make the next size up.


Let's get started!


I use Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn because I have sensitive hands and this yarn is soft enough that I can crochet for hours without any problems. Plus, they have a wide variety of colors to choose from! But don't worry, if you don't have this yarn available any worsted weight yarn will work. I use 2 strands held together for this project, or you can substitute a bulky yarn instead.

Assembling Headband

When looking at the horn, one side of the base is wider than the other (Right side of photo). This side will go toward the center of the headband.


Align the horns on the top of the headband so that the wider part of the base is in the center of the headband and touching each other. The back of the horns will be 1 row from the back edge of the headband, and the front of the horns will be 2 rows from the front edge of the headband.





Secure horns to the top of the headband with one strand of black and a large needle. Shape horns to curve inward. Using tail of headband, stitch ends of headband together.
