My Country Cottage Stocking was the first pattern I designed using this beautiful texture from alternating double crochet stitches and front post double crochet stitches. I loved it so much I’ve continued to design more and more patterns using it! I enjoy making and wearing crochet headbands all winter long so naturally I decided to design a Country Cottage Headband! Not only does it have the most beautiful texture, but it’s made double thick so it’s incredibly warm!
The Country Cottage Collection now includes the Country Cottage Beanie, Country Cottage Mittens, Country Cottage Socks, Country Cottage Stocking, Country Cottage Cozy, and Country Cottage Pumpkins.

This pattern calls for a medium (4) weight yarn. I used Yarn Bee Soft and Sleek in the color Mustard and Tobacco, but you can can use any medium (4) weight yarn! Since the sizing can be easily adjusted, you can try other yarn weights if you’d prefer!
Other yarns I think would work great for this pattern are Lion Brand Yarn Color Theory, Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch, Vanna’s Choice, and Red Heart With Love.
The Country Cottage Headband pattern includes instructions for 8 sizes! Sizes ranges from newborn to adult large, but you can easily adjust the pattern to be any size you’d like! To adjust the length/circumference, work as many rounds until your desired length is reached. To adjust the width/ height, work any even number of chains/stitches around to reach your desired width. I’ve included a size chart down below so you can check your measurements and choose the size that best fits you!

- This headband is made double thick. We will work in the round to create a long, narrow tube. The rounds worked will make up the length/circumference of the headband, whereas the stitches around will make up the width/height of the headband. The short sides of the tube will then we attached together to close the headband.

Yarn over, insert your hook from the front, around the back, and to the front again, around the post of the next ST, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through last 2 loops.
How to not twist your chain when creating a loop: after creating your chain, remove your hook and insert it through the first chain you created. Put the last loop back on your hook and pull it through the last chain with a slip stitch. Now you can created a loop without twisting your chain.
For Round 1, work 1 DC in each chain around. Work the 1st DC in the same chain you joined to. For Round 2, work the 1st double crochet into the same stitch as the chain 2. FPDC around the post of the next stitch. Repeat *DC, FPDC* around.
For Round 3, working a FPDC in the first stitch and a DC in the next. Repeat around then repeat Rounds 2 & 3 until your desired length is reached.

Use your yarn needle and whip stitch the ends together, making sure to sew into each layer. When you reach the end, secure your yarn with a few knots and weave in your end.
