How To Crochet A Hair Scarf

Midsummer Hair Scarf- free crochet pattern


* indicates required

I have long and wavy hair and I love wearing headbands and hair scarfs. The Midsummer Hair Scarf was designed to be a cute and stylish hair accessory that is light and lacy enough to wear during the hottest months of summer. I used sport weight yarn, but since it essentially just a long strip it could be easily adjusted to work with lighter or heavier yarn.
