Today I am sharing my crocheted bandana pattern. It is very simple to make, and I will try to keep the directions simple. Let me know if there are any questions.
- Any yarn of your liking
- I used a G 4.25MM hook, but you can choose whatever size necessary.
- How to do a chain stitch from Crochet Geek
- How to do a double crochet from Annie's crafts
- Crochet 101 from Vogue Knitting
Row 1: Chain 64 - or as many chains as you need. Make sure it's in multiples of 3 because you skip every 2 stitches.
At the end of the chain, add 8 extra chains. This will start the next row.
Row 2-16, etc.: Count the 7 or 8 extra stitches back from hook and do a double crochet. Chain 2, skip 2 stitches and do another double crochet.
To go to the next row, chain 6 and do a double crochet in the next row, above the previous double crochet.
Continue this until you get a square shape. I did about 16 rows. Since I only had 2 small balls of yarn for the first bandana pictured, I wanted to use everything I had.
In the second bandana I made with the blue yarn, I did a 6x6 square. So any sized square shape will work.
Continue with the *chain 2, skip 2, double crochet* pattern around the square until you get the length you want. You can also use this as a basic shawl or afghan pattern. I'm going to keep double crocheting around to see how big it gets.
