I don’t know about you but when the weather is hot, my hair is always up in a bun or ponytail. Who am I kidding? It’s an all-year-round thing for me. But during the summer/fall those little flyaways feel much more noticeable. Maybe it’s because in the winter I’m always wearing a beanie? I don’t know. But the reality is, a little bit of time outside or a car trip with the windows open and what may have started as a good hair day has turned into frizzy bad hair day. My solution: a crochet hair scarf. So I whipped myself up a crochet hair scarf and now I’m here to share with you my Berry Good Hair Day Crochet Hair Scarf Pattern. Now, all days can be a good hair day.

When I picked the yarn for this project, I wanted it to do two things. One, be something that was light and flexible/drapey AND I wanted it to be a quick project for someone that might not have tried working with fingering weight yarn yet because they thought working with fingering yarn would take forever. I had some beautiful Hawthorne Fingering Handpaint Speckle yarn in Berry Cobbler in my stash and so I decide this yarn would be fantastic. It’s got great stitch definition, great drape, cost effective and you get get two crochet hair scarves from one hank. If you haven’t tried this yarn before, check out my Hawthorne Fingering Hand Paint Speckle Yarn review HERE.
I hope I didn’t lose you at fingering weight yarn. Because, this realy is a quick project. I’ve included two different sizes – there’s a thin scarf that’s about 2.25″ wide and a wide scarf that’s about 4.25″ wide. I got both of these from a single hank of Hawthorne Fingering Weight yarn and still had some left over. I was able to make the thin scarf in about an hour and a half. And I am SLOOOOOOOOOWW crocheting and have kids interrupting me every two minutes asking if my project is for them or if they can have their 37th snack for the day. So if you’re a beginner or intimidated by working with fingering weight yarn, this is the perfect project for getting your feet wet and giving it a try. I put off working with fingering weight yarn forever thinking it would take me my whole life to make anything and I get bored if a project takes me too long. So I thought it wouldn’t be for me. Once I tried it, I was hooked! I am OB-SESSED now and although, worsted weight will always be my favourite, I’ve definitely been adding more fingering weight yarn to my stash because I just love working with it.
Ways to Wear your Crochet Hair Scarf
I have never been the fashionista that can tell you a dozen different ways to tie a scarf and make you look sassy and fiece. No. I’m the girl that looks like she got into a fight with her scarf and lost. So, thanks to creativity and my friend Google, I have a couple of suggestions and some of them aren’t even for your hair. How’s that for versatility? Some ways you can wear/style your Berry Good Hair Day Crochet Hair Scarf:
- Tie it at the back of your head
- Tie it around your ponytail/messy bun. This can be done once, letting the tails dangle or wrapped around multiple times.
- Wrap it around the handle of your purse. It looks fun/stylish and you’ll have it with you in case you need it
- It can be used as a short scarf and tied around your neck
- Tied on top of your head in a knot with the ends tucked in
How will you wear yours? Let me know in the comments below so everyone can share different ways to style their crochet hair scarves.
