Best Yarn for Crochet Bandana Pattern

Cotton: Cotton is a great choice for crochet bandanas because it is breathable, soft, and drapes nicely. It is also a good choice for people with sensitive skin. Cotton yarn comes in a wide variety of colors and weights, so you can find the perfect yarn for your project.

Cotton-blend: A cotton-blend yarn is a good option for crochet head scarf if you want a yarn that is still soft and breathable, but is also a little bit more durable. Cotton-linen blends are a popular choice for warm-weather projects because they are cool and lightweight.

You can also choose Acrylic yarns if you are making this granny crochet bandana pattern for cold weather!

Finished Size of the Crochet Head Scarf

You’ll want the finished size to comfortably fit the intended wearer’s head. Measure the head circumference to ensure the scarf isn’t too tight or loose.

  • Bandana: Typically finishes around 14-18 inches (35.5-45.7 cm) wide and 7-9 inches (17.8-22.9 cm) tall, excluding ties. Ties can be anywhere from 12-20 inches (30.5-50.8 cm) long, allowing for adjustability.
  • Triangle headscarf: Similar to a bandana, with a triangular shape. The base (widest part) can be around 18-22 inches (45.7-55.9 cm) and the height can be 12-15 inches (30.5-38.1 cm).
  • Rectangular headscarf: Can be various sizes, depending on if you want it to fully wrap your head or just tie at the back. A common size is 20-24 inches (50.8-61 cm) wide and 50-60 inches (127-152.4 cm) long.
