Do you need a last minute accessory for tonight’s festivities? There’s still time! I waited until the last minute too, and this headband is what I came up with.
This design combines 2 of my previous patterns with a simple red chain. It only uses basic stitches, but combines knitting and crochet. This is a great project for a beginning knitter with a little bit of crochet experience.

Last Minute 4th of July Headband
- Worsted weight yarn – 20-30 yds
- US Size 8 (5 mm) knitting needles
- Small amount of red yarn in desired weight for stripe (sample shown uses DK)
- Small amount of white yarn in desired weight for star (samlple shown uses Worsted)
- Appropriately sized crochet hooks for the red and white yarns chosen (sample shown uses size F for red stripe, and size G for white star)
- Yarn needle
Easy – Combines basic knitting and crochet techniques.
Start by making my Super Simple Garter Stitch Headband pattern in blue.
With red, make a chain about 1″ longer than the headband (all the way around). Starting at the back and using a yarn needle, weave the chain in and out of the stitches on the headband loosely so the headband can still stretch. Stretch it out once to check it, then sew in the ends at the back.
Finally, make a white star, using my Twinkle Twinkle 2 Round Star pattern, and sew it onto the headband as desired. I used red yarn to sew it on, just for fun.
