A headband is beneficial to you in many ways like protecting your eyes from the hair, being a part of the hairstyle, etc. You can also wear it for different occasions like a casual outing, a party, or an outdoor sport. It is worn by males, females, children and babies. Headbands are mainly classified on the basis of the material and technique used for weaving. One such type of headband popular for its technique of weaving is the crochet headband.
Unlike a knitted headband, a crochet-style headband involves stitching thread or yarn into a fabric with the help of a small hook made of metal or wood. Also, every single stitch in a crochet technique is sealed immediately before moving to the next stitch, unlike normal knitting.
