Headbands and crochet head warmers are amazing when the summer is over and it’s getting cold — firstly in the evenings, and finally during the day as well. The headbands don’t ruin your hair and they keep you warm and fashionable.

They are worn already in autumn, as the weather can be really unexpected and moody, through the winter. It’s a secret weapon not to be cold but to have perfect hair at the same time! There are many designs available so you can find something that will fit your taste and clothes without any problem. Take a look at the examples below to check the current trends and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
