This is my go-to chunky headband pattern. It’s quick and simple and I can get one made in about 20 minutes. I’ve finally decided to share it with the world and publish it! This is such a simple design so I also included directions for continuing and making a hat.
Use this versatile pattern to make a thin or thick headband for any age, or create a super soft and squishy hat with all the ridges.
