Free Crochet Latte Headband Pattern

A free crocheted cute-as-all-get-out headband pattern for you today.

I admit it. I love coffee. A grande latte from Starbucks is my drink of choice.

I also love making a latte by hand every morning for my handsome fella and myself. And some coffee alternative Teeccino when I don’t want any more caffeine. So yum.

So it stands to reason I’d eventually have a yarn and pattern based on this favorite drink of mine! (Side note. If you’re wondering about that cute crocheted basket on the table… my sis made that for me. She sells all kinds of beautiful items here.)

YARN: This is our new Resilient superwash merino wool sock yarn in colorway LATTE… OH. MY. GAWD. Long story short… I’ve always wanted to offer this type of sock yarn… round, plump, verrrry stretchy and elastic (it boings back into place, like a good sock yarn should), in a fine micron merino wool so is super soft and is machine-washable. So if your hand-made beauties get accidentally tossed into the washer and dryer, they will survive. Whew! We had the mill spin this custom yarn for our company and we LOVE it.

Here are the yarn specs:

•Perfect for hand-knit socks, shawls, modern baby clothes and hats, accessories, mittens, stuffed animals and anything else you can think of!!

“RESILIENT” SUPERWASH MERINO WOOL SOCK YARN – our signature sock yarn! After years of using various sock yarns, I had the mill spin up this custom yarn for us, which embodies everything you’d want in an ideal sock yarn:

•4-ply : Results in round, defined, beautiful stitches. The more plies the better for items that will get lots of wear like socks. Your projects will last and last with very little pilling, strand breaking or wearing thin.
•BOUNCE FACTOR – this yarn is BOINGY! It has a ton of memory, or “resilience” (thus the name), which is ideal for socks since it stretches but bounces right back to its original length. Perfect!
•Fingering Weight: Perfect for hand-knit socks, but also virtually any other accessory you want to make, like hats, scarves and shawls, mittens, including baby and kid items. Wonderful for sweaters and other garments or even blankets! Sock yarn is so versatile and well-loved by many yarnies.
•Superwash Merino Wool = super soft, super fine wool. No itchiness here! Machine-washable! Hand-washing keeps your items looking the best the longest, but no worries if your socks accidently get tossed into the washer and dryer. They’ll be just fine and won’t felt or ruin. Whew.
•Yardage: 366 m/400 yd
•Weight: 4 oz (approx. 113 g)
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 0-2
•Crochet Hook Size B-E

PATTERN: Latte Headband – this was originally intended to be a hat. I stopped working on it for a day and realized… it wanted to be a headband. Let the yarn decide, I say! So headband it became.

This pattern (crocheted, btw), is:

•Beginner level. Easy. If you can do a double crochet, you’re golden.

•3 sizes – adult, pre-teen and baby/toddler. It’s stretchy, so the exact size isn’t crucial.

•FREE!! Yes. No charge for this one!

•FAST. Takes maybe a few hours?

•INEXPENSIVE. You only need a tiny bit of yarn really and can make many headbands out of one skein of this yarn.

free and easy headband pattern

•It’s designed to be used with our Resilient sock yarn for 2 reasons: 1. So the colors line up into stripes as shown. 2. So it’s really stretchy and bouncy and pounces back into shape without getting stretched out like a lot of yarns do. You can substitute another yarn if you like, but make sure it’s stretchy for sure. The colors may or may not line up, but if you’re okay with more of a variegated look, then you don’t need to worry about it.

•Great for GIFTS. Whip out dozens of these if you like! They are stylish, wearable, soft, keep the ears nice and toasty without being HOT (I wear mine inside and outside and always feel comfortable), lightweight (cheap to ship to friends and family!) and just all around CUTE. What’s not to love?

LATTE: And now. For my latte recommendations.

Every morning I awake. Get dressed. And prance into the kitchen to make lattes.

After moving into our new house here in Charlotte, NC (loving the city), I realized we needed a coffee pot, so researched the best.

I decided on a Chemex. Supposedly it makes some of the most amazing coffee and their filters take out all the bitter oils and you’re left with smooth, delicious coffee.

chemex coffee pot review

The verdict? It’s true. We LOVE IT.

STEPS:

1. I heat up 2 cups of water on the stove while getting the cups and saucers and Chemex ready.

2. When just about to boil (about 200 degrees), I drizzle a bit of the water over the coffee grounds (freshly ground is best and we are loving the Allegro brand from Whole Foods right now… we do half decaf and half regular) to moisten them.

3. 30 seconds later, I drizzle in more water and continue to do so until it’s all filtered down through the grounds.

4. As it’s draining down, I’m also whisking milk in another skillet over low heat, making frothy goodness.

5. Once the coffee is done filtering, I throw away the grounds and filter and pour the coffee into our cups.

6. Then I grab a spoon, pour the hot milk into each cup and then lay the foam on top gently.

Voila. DE-licious coffee.

latte how to make an amazing one

When I want coffee during the day but don’t want any more caffeine, I use Teeccino. It’s AMAZING. It tastes so delicious you’ll be in shock. It’s a coffee alternative brand I discovered a few months ago and they have all types of flavors. Look for it at Whole Foods or your grocery store or you can order online from their website.

So there you have it!

All about the LATTE…

I admit, I ran to Starbucks and got one right before writing this post. AH! Addicted? Yup. Happily so.

And now I’m off to continue to design the next project… a butterfly and bobbles knit hat made from pure silk. HELLO. The fun never ends around here. I’m obviously also obsessed with yarn. Can you tell?

THANK YOU!!!

Talk to you soon.

    You should save your used coffee grounds for use in the garden and especially your flowers. Mixing it in with the dirt has made more hearty plants that produce more and bigger. Really good for roses too. 🙂

    Hi Chandi,
    I just wanted to write a little note saying how much I love your website. I love drooling over your beautiful yarns but unfortunately my financial situation is still stuck at the Walmart stage when it comes to how much I can spend on yarn. However I get so much inspiration from your site and what you are creating. I wish you the best.

    Hi Chandi!
    Thank you for the pattern for this adorable headband!!! I’ve just been crocheting for 3 months now and am excited about making this. I’m finding that starting out with making smaller projects builds my confidence and builds my growing excitement for the hobby. This pattern/project is awesome!!!

    Question, is the yard you suggest be a good choice for baby afghans? I’m looking for the perfectly soft yarn to make a baby afghan for my first grandbaby coming soon. I bought some “made for baby blankets” yarn at my local Hobby Lobby. As I was working with it, it soon became worn looking and began pilling. I’m desperately looking for the right yarn. I would love your expert input. Thank you so much!!

      Yep! This would be great for a baby afghan. The yarn is machine washable which is ideal for items needing frequent washing. Since the yarn is fingering weight, it is perfect for creating baby items. Hope this helps.

    I just received my first yarn, and I feel stupid, I can’t figure out how to start or even find an end on my yarn. Can you explain how I start?

  24. Becky October 27, 2015 at 11:34 pm - Reply

    I’m loving this pattern, but when I chained 114, it seemed much too big. Far too big to fit around my head, and I have a pretty big head. I’m using sock weight yarn and a 3.25 mmm hook. Is there something I’m missing reading the pattern?
