Are you tired of the same old hair accessories? Why not try making your own Tunisian crochet hair band? Tunisian crochet is a versatile technique that creates a unique texture and pattern, perfect for creating stylish hair accessories. In this guide, we will show you how to make your own Tunisian crochet hair band in just a few easy steps.
Tunisian crochet hook (size F or G)
Worsted weight yarn in your desired color
Step 1: Chain Stitch
Start by making a chain stitch that is the same circumference as your head. Make sure to keep the tension even throughout the chain stitch.
Step 2: Tunisian Simple Stitch
Once you have made the chain stitch, insert your hook into the second chain from the hook and pull up a loop. Continue to pull up a loop in each chain stitch until you reach the end of the chain.
Step 3: Return Pass
Now, you will start the return pass. Yarn over and pull through one loop on the hook. Then, yarn over and pull through two loops on the hook. Continue to yarn over and pull through two loops until you reach the end of the row.
Step 4: Tunisian Simple Stitch
For the next row, insert your hook into the first vertical bar on the right side of the previous row. Pull up a loop and continue to pull up a loop in each vertical bar until you reach the end of the row.
Step 5: Return Pass
Repeat step 3 for the return pass.
Step 6: Repeat
Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the hair band reaches the desired width. Make sure to keep the tension even throughout the project.
Step 7: Bind Off
Once the hair band is the desired width, bind off the stitches. Cut the yarn and weave in the ends using a tapestry needle.
