This is a free linked crochet bandana pattern. Wear this pretty bandana as a fun accessory or to keep hair out of your face.
The weather is getting warmer and I’ve been so happy to be outside working in my garden. Growing a garden is one of my absolute favorite things about summer. Well, when the sun was high while I was out working, it was getting really warm. I found that I kept having to wipe the sweat away to keep it from rolling down my forehead.
So once I was back inside for the evening (and showered) I decided that I needed to crochet myself a bandana to help keep my hair out of my way but also to prevent the sweat from rolling down my forehead and into my eyes.
The end result is this super cute linked crochet bandana! I’m so happy with how this turned out that I’ve decided to share this easy pattern with you today. This lovely little crochet bandana can be worn as a fun accessory or you can wear it for practical purposes – as I did.
As a matter of fact, if you’re new to Linked Crochet, then I think this is a great project to start with. This is just a small, simple project. Furthermore, this crochet pattern includes a video tutorial to walk you through the basics of the linked double crochet stitch.
PS: The Linked Crochet Triangle Shawl Crochet Pattern is a perfect match with this bandana. Maybe make both for this summer 🙂

Free Written Pattern for the Linked Crochet Bandana
Notes: None of the FIRST CH2’s count as a stitch, they are just there to help start the LDC. Also after a chain space is created, you’ll crochet a DC and then connect the next LDC to the just-made DC. For the filet crochet row, there are no LDCs, just DCs and ATC means Alternative Turning Chain, aka stacked single crochet.
Make a Magic Ring.
Row 1: CH2, 4 LDC, CH2, 1 DC, 3 LDC in the ring; tighten ring and turn.
Row 2: CH2, 2 LDC in the first st, 1 LDC in each LDC until ch2 sp; [2LDC, CH2, 1 DC, 1 LDC] (the ldc is connected to the dc) in ch2 sp; LDC in each dc until last LDC; 2 LDC in last LDC, turn.
Row 3-5: as row 2
Row 6: [ 1 ATC, CH 1, 1 DC] in the first st, *CH 1, SK 1, 1 DC, repeat from * until the ch2 sp; [1 DC, CH 1, 1 DC, CH 1] in ch2 sp; **1 DC, CH 1, SK 1, repeat from ** until last LDC, [1 DC, CH 1, 1 DC] in the last LDC, turn
Now count all CH 1’s as 1 st.
(Repeat row 2 five times, then repeat row 6) repeat this 3 times such that you end up with 23 rows (finishing with five times row 2)
Add the border and straps
Start with 1 strap, ch 40, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc per ch, then crochet evenly on the long edge (2 sc’s per ldc), now crochet the 2nd strap the same way as the first one.
Next, crochet the short sides of the triangle to add a scallop border: *1 sc into first st, sk 1 st, then 5 dc in the next st, sk 1 st, repeat from *
Fasten off and weave in ends.
