Free Crochet pattern for a Thanksgiving Headband
If you’re looking for a free pattern on how to crochet a Thanksgiving Headband you’ve come to the right place. I wanted to buy my kids some adorable thanksgiving apparel, but there’s no money in the budget for that. So, I decided to see what I could muster up with my scrap yarn and decided to do a headband which can also double as an ear warmer. I encourage you to not buy yarn for this project. Everything uses very small amounts. You could even do stripes for the largest piece, the headband, if you’re afraid you don’t have enough of any one color.
I hope you have fun making this. If you have a little boy, or you don’t want the headband part you could just make the toy as a fun Thanksgiving toy. If you skip the googly eyes this could be a plastic free toy, yay!
-a size H crochet hook
-a hot glue gun
-3 different colors of scrap yarn
