The Diagonal Lattice Tunisian Headband is a beginner-friendly, Tunisian crochet project that is just perfect to keep you warm in the winter cold!
Moreover, with Christmas just behind the corner, this headband makes such a gorgeous Christmas gift!
The design of the Diagonal Lattice Tunisian Headband is very simple, thus perfect to practice your Tunisian crochet skills and learn a new stitch.
I actually designed this headband to match my Misty Grey Tunisian Poncho, which I designed for a guest post on the undergroundcrafter.com blog.
For our headbands, we will be using the same stitch as the main body of the Misty Grey Tunisian Poncho, which is the diagonal lattice stitch. Don’t worry if you have no clue how to make the diagonal lattice Tunisian stitch because I will guide you through it with step-by-step photos.
In the Indications Size by Size section, you will find all the info regarding the number of chains needed for each size and the indicative number of rows to crochet to reach the desired length.

Feel free to use any comparable medium-weight yarn that meets gauge.
