Are headbands safe for babies?
As with any other items for your infant, your baby should never be left unattended with a headband, whether it is crocheted, knitted or sewn.
A headband can slip and create a choking or strangling hazard, therefore it is imperative that you monitor your baby whenever he or she is wearing one.
Also make sure to remove the headband and any other accessories before placing your baby in the crib.
I am super excited to bring you these sweet headband patterns and would like to say a big THANK YOU to the creative pattern designers for allowing me to share them with you.

How do you crochet a stretchy baby headband?
To make your headband stretchy or elastic, you will want your stitches to create what is called ‘Ribbing’. There are a few different ways of doing this but basically you are alternating your stitches, front to back.
For example, let’s say you have a row of double crochet stitches and the next row will begin the ribbing also using double crochet stitches.
So, instead of inserting the hook in the hole of the previous row, you will go behind the post of the DC stitch. The next stitch goes in front of the post and so on.
See this cool article for step by step instructions on how to make stretchy crochet ribbing.
