Crochet Pride hairband

After the hate and terror on the night of 25 June in Oslo, dad wanted to show his solidarity while he was at work the following Monday.

And since he has grown out his hair during the pandemic, he thought it was cool to have a hair braid in the colors of the rainbow.

I was the one who was going to crochet this hairband, so then it became the colors of the progression flag.

Repeat rows 1-11 six times

Crochet or sew row 1 and row 66 together

Tie the tails of each row together* around an elastic thread or hair tie

* I recommend either an overhand knot or a figure eight knot


Feel free to cut the tails shorter or completely down to the knots.


A/N: If you leave the tails on, the hair braid will have a similar look to the fake hair braids that you could find everywhere in the early 2000s (see photo 2).


That was it. Use and enjoy
