Christmas Tree Graph Headband
Christmas is almost here! Need some cute, quick gifts that cost next to nothing? Don’t fret, you can knock off my graph headband in no time! They are easy to make with a few simple guidelines and I have a tutorial to help you read the graph if it’s your first time (or you want a refresher) AND a video too!
The pattern includes sizing from toddler to Adult. I designed this headband to be worn as a decorative piece and so it is only 3″ wide, however, if you want it wider, simply add rounds to make it as wide as you like! It’s worked in worsted weight yarn, and is a great project for finishing up those 1/2 used balls of yarn.
These little trees are just waiting for your added customized touches to make them special. I added some red buttons to look like balls and poinsettia buttons as the topper on the white tree and a simple bow on the more rustic ivory one, but of course, they look adorable plain too!

Notes to help you with the chart and customization:
- The graph is an 8 row and 35 stitch design, worked in the center stitches of the headband. For each round, work FPdc as indicated by the pattern to the beginning of the chart design. Work the applicable chart row and then complete the round with FPdc to end. Join each round with a sl st in the first FPdc (not ch2) of each round. With the exception of Round 1, all rounds are worked as FPdc around the st of the previous round.
- Pay attention to color changes in graph. To complete clean color changes, work last stitch before new color until there are two loops on hook, pull in new color. You may use bobbins to wind the different colors around, however, for such a small design I simply snip the yarn at the end of each color change and weave ends.
- This design is intended to be a decorative headband, however, if you would like to make it wider to wear as an ear warmer, simply add the same number of rounds of FPdc before and after you work the chart design. Example: Work Round 1 as a complete round in Color 1, then work chart design in rounds 2 to 9 and finish with a Round 10 of Color 1. This would add 2 rounds and slightly less than 1” of width (Each inch = approximately 2.7 rounds).
Round 1 (Right Side): Ch 65 (73, 79, 85) loosely, dc in 4th ch from hook (skipped chs count as dc) and in next 12 (16, 19, 22) chs, complete Row 1 of graph, dc in each remaining st to end. Join with sl st to the 1st st to form the round. (63, 71, 77, 83 sts throughout)
Round 2: Ch2 (does not count as a st), FPdc around each st following Row 2 of graph, join.
Rounds 3 to 8: Repeat Round 2, completing Rows 3 to 8 of the graph.
Round 9: Ch2, FPdc around each st to end. Fasten off.
Top & Bottom Edge: With Color 2, join yarn with a sl st in a st near the first st of Round 1 of the headband, work a modified round of Twisted SC or Crab St, as follows, [sc in next st, ch1, skip 1] repeat between [ ] to end, join. Fasten off.
