Happy Camper Crochet Hair Bandana ☾ Free Crochet Pattern

Happy Free Pattern Friday!

I’m so excited to be bringing you this FREE crochet pattern for the Happy Camper Bandana!

Cute story about why I chose this name: I was camping this past summer and the site attendant stopped by to say hello. I was wearing one of my hair bandanas and as soon as the attendant saw it, she lit up! She said she thought it was so cute, and looked just like the ones her and her friends used to wear in the 70s! How cool is that?!

These babies work up soo quick, and they’re a super versatile accessory that you can dress up or down– it’s perfect for 2nd or 3rd day hair that you don’t want to deal with :p

HOW TO STYLE:

In the spring, I like to style these with skirts and dresses.

Come fall they also look great with a flannel or overalls!
