Queen Anne’s Lace Headband

by Lorene on September 27, 2013

Beaded Beauty Paisley Headband

This simple Queen Anne’s Lace Headband uses a method I discovered on the blog My Hobby Is Crochet. Kinga’s Thread Headband uses an elastic hair tie to make her headband stretchy.

My Queen Anne’s lace is just a little different than some of the other patterns I have found. I start my beginning motif with 16dc instead of 14. I also tend to do the chains differently. Instead of chain 4 or chain 3 I like to add beads or do picots.  On this pattern I decided to add beads, on my other pattern Crowned Glory, I used picots.

There are 3 sizes available: baby, child and adult.

You can use any Queen Anne’s Lace pattern you prefer. I do mine just slightly different than the methods I have found. For a great video tutorial you can watch this AllFreeCrochet video filmed by Mary Kathryn of Crochet Chiq. Mary Kathryn makes lovely scarfs with this method.

Crochet Thread/lace weight – I used Bernat Handicrafter
2.75mm (C) hook
seed beads (42 for the headband part, as many as you want for the ties)(optional, see below for modifications)
elastic hair tie (I used the smaller children’s size from Goody)
needle for finishing
collapsible beading needle (optional)

Special Stitches:

mc/r- magic circle/ring (watch this video tutorial)


If you don’t have beads you can ch3 or ch4 in ever beaded space instead or you can picot in the beaded spaces. I used picots in my Crowned Glory headband

You can add or subtract as many motifs as you wish, just be sure to adjust the chains for band accordingly


1. Thread working end of thread with 42 (or more, see materials) beads.  A collapsible beading needle makes this task much easier.

2. Magic Circle/ Ring (tutorial video here) with 16dc, do NOT join

3. Ch1 and turn. [1sc in each of the next 2sts. (Ch1. Pull up one bead and ch1 to secure. Ch1)] 5x. 1sc in each of the next 2sts.  Ch3.  1sc in each of the last 2sts (last sc will be stitched into the the ch3 from turning chain).  Do NOT join.


4. *Ch6 and turn work.  Sl st into the 1st ch3 sp of last completed motif.  Ch3 (counts as 1st dc) and turn work.  13dc more in ch6 sp.  Sl st into the 1st available sc on the last completed motif.  Ch1 and turn work.  [1sc in each of the next 2sts.  (Ch1.  Pull up one bead and ch1 to secure.  Ch1)] 4x.  1sc in each of the next 2sts.  Ch3.  1sc in each of the last 2sts (last sc will be stitched into the the ch3 from turning chain). Sl st into the ch3 sp on the last completed motif.


5. Repeat from * 7 more times

6. Ch6 and turn work.  Sl st into the 1st ch3 sp.  Ch3 (counts as 1st dc) and turn work.  13dc more in ch6 sp.  Sl st into the 1st available sc on the last completed motif.  Ch1 and turn work.  [1sc in each of the next 2sts.  (Ch1.  Pull up one bead and ch1 to secure.  Ch1)] 5x.  1sc in each of the next 4sts.

For Band

1. Sl st into the edge of finished motif (I prefer to attach the center chain first, in the space between beads).  Ch30 (40, 50), add beads wherever you like, attach to elastic with sl st and 4sc.

2. Ch 30 (40,50) and sl st to finished motif on either side of first chain.  Fasten off and weave in ends

3. Sl st to the edge of the finished motif on the other side of beginning chain.  Ch30 (40,50) and attach to elastic band with sl st and 4sc (working back towards the first set of 4sc.  Sl st to the first set of 4sc and fasten off.  Weave in ends.

4. Repeat for other side

5. Wrap yarn around center of elastic tie and weave in ends to secure

I love this pattern. My confusion is that at the end of step 3 there is a chain 3, then the work is turned and another chain 6. Is there a point where the last chain 3 from step 3 is supposed to be sc or sl st to the end of the row before turning? Else you have only one chain 3 loop and and chain 9 at the beginning of the next row.

No it was a mistake, I corrected it, thanks for letting me know. The last ch3 should not have been there. after the initial 4sc and chains with beads it is 2sc. Ch3. 2sc to end. Sorry!

Just wanted to let you know I made three of these last night, using #10 crochet thread (of which I have dozens of skeins). Of course the change in yarn from your original pattern requires more motifs. They are turning out really cute. Thanks again for the pattern.


Lorene September 28, 2013 at 3:58 pm

awesome, thank for letting me know! Glad you like them.


Patti Harrison October 17, 2013 at 9:05 pm

where do you sell you things?


Lorene October 17, 2013 at 10:47 pm

I sell my items in brick and mortar boutiques though honestly I have been so busy that I haven’t build up any stock for this season. I take private custom orders occasionally.


Kristine May 22, 2014 at 12:50 am

I used this awesome pattern to make a bracelet instead of a headband. Is it OK to sell this item?


Lorene May 22, 2014 at 1:20 pm

Yes you can sell whatever finished items you make with ANY of my patterns!


Judy June 14, 2014 at 8:41 am

I cannot see any of the jpg pictures. Any ideas why?


Lorene June 14, 2014 at 1:22 pm

I have no idea, but I have corrected it… thank you for letting me know
