Simple Hair Tie Back with Button

This simple hair tie back matches wonderfully with the puff stitch necklace. It works up quickly using chain sts, puff sts, and a few single crochets. This tie back looks stunning in variegated yarn, but it would also be lovely changing colors every round with 2 or more solid colors, or even just in one color. The tie back is closed with a button, and is adjustable. There are two fun little chains that end in puff stitches that hang down below the button. These chains can easily be made longer for a more dramatic look.

Almost any ribbon yarn will work, for the samples seen here I used Prism Yarns Tencel Tape in Mojave.

4.00mm/US G

One size fits most (even children), as the button can be fastened through any of the openings of the tie back.

ch ~ Chain
sl st ~ Slip Stitch

puff st ~ puff stitch: [yo, insert hook into st, yo, pull through st] 4 times, all in the same st (9 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 9 loops, puff stitch made.

Here is a video to help you along:


Ch 3, puff st in 1st ch made, ch 97, sc in bottom loop of 5th ch from hook [ch 4, skip 4, sc in bottom loop of next ch] 16 times, ch 20, puff st in bottom loop of 3rd ch from hook, ch 1. Finish off.

Lay the finished head wrap flat. On one end there are the dangles, on the other is the fold. Sew the button at the very end where the fold is. If you watch the end of the video, there is also a tip on how to crochet the button on.

Variation: to extend the hanging chains, add more chains to the chains after the first puff st (try 107 or 117 instead of 97), then add onto the end before the last puff st (try 30 or 40 instead of 20).

Wear or give and enjoy!

  1. Love the design! One question: Where, when and how did you attach the button? I made a somewhat similar headwrap and couldn’t figure out how to attach the button so that it didn’t pull on the stitches when fastened (leaving a big ugly dangly loop where the button is attached).

    • Oops! I will need to go back and put that in! Silly me. The button goes at the fold. When it is laying flat there is one end with the dangles, and one end with the fold, that is where the button goes. You can sew it on, or, if you watch the very end of the video there is a tip on how to crochet it on.
