Crochet Pattern: Vintage Tiara Headband

By Amy Yarbrough – 5 Comments
Quite a few decades ago a person wouldn’t walk out of the house without a hat — man, woman, or child. Hair pieces for women were plentiful and varied, worn when going out or at home. Barrettes, tiaras, headbands, clips of every sort. It’s a lost era, I’m sorry to say. But who says we can’t bring it back! This tiara-style headband is fashioned after the hair pieces of the early 1900’s. Women wore their hair wavy and put up neatly with accessories like this one. Now you can make your own; it’s terribly simple and very glamorous! Vintage Tiara Headband

    How did you attach your strings? Are they knotted singly or doubled over and then knotted?

    I found my piece ended up the perfect length for a child… If I wanted to increase the length of my chain what would I increase by? 4 ?
