When I thought about what sort of crochet headband pattern I’d like to make next for the April Flowers CAL I’m hosting with Kirsten, two things stood out. First, I wanted you guys to be able to completely customize the sizing. Second, I wanted loads of fun texture, but without it being too complicated. It took some finagling, but I think I’ve come up with the perfect crochet headband pattern!
This fun, textured crochet headband pattern is called the Raspberry Lemonade Headband. It’s sweet, and simple, with just two crochet texture stitches. I even kept it to a simple one row repeat!

This light, breezy headband is perfect for keeping my hair back while I’m gardening, reading (about gardening), or even crocheting. I really like the relaxed feel of it, but the textured edge adds just a hint of sweetness.
Wondering why I’ve named it after my favorite summertime drink? Look closely! The edging is made with the Berry Stitch, and the body is made with the Lemon Peel Stitch. (I like to think I’m pretty Punny sometimes!)
I’ve included brief descriptions of both stitches here in the description, but I will link some stitch tutorials for those of you who are visual learners, as well!
Red Heart Soft Yarn (or approx. 75 yds Worsted  weight 100% acrylic yarn)
BS – berry stitch
Sc- single crochet
Dc – double crochet
Yo – yarn over
Berry Stitch (BS) – insert hook into st, yo and draw up a loop. Ch 3, yo and complete stitch.
Lemon Peel Stitch – alternating single and double crochet, worked into double and single crochets respectively.
Gauge is not crucial to this project, as it’s worked to length. Simply work until your headband measures about 2” smaller than your head, and seam shut. It should stretch easily to fit.

Raspberry Lemonade Headband Crochet Pattern
Row 1: BS in 2nd ch, sc in next ch. *Dc in next st, sc in next.* Repeat * to * across. 
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, BS in first st, sc in next. *Dc in next st, sc in next.* Repeat * to * across. 
Repeat Row 2 until piece is slightly shorter than desired. For an Adult size, 2″ shorter than head circumference unstretched is about right.
Final Row: Ch 1, turn. Holding both ends together, slip stitch across, seaming both ends of the headband together.
Break yarn and weave in all ends.
