Shiny hair barrettes (free pattern)

I frequently use hair barrettes to tie my hair up, they are very comfortable and a nice accessory for my daily outfit.



This is a part of my hair barrettes and clips collection, I have crocheted them using the shiny yarns Gatsby and Bolero from Katia, a 3 mm. crochet hook, and a french barrette.


This could be a perfect Christmas present, easy, original and cheap to make.

French barrette / hair clip


The pattern is very easy; it is based in double crochet stitches and shells. Ch 22.

Row 1. DC in 3rd ch from hook, DC across. Total 21 sts.

Row 2. Ch 2, DC across. Total 21 sts.

Row 3. Ch 1, *skip next stitch, 4 DC shell in next stitch, skip next one, sc* repeat instructions between * 4 times more.

Update: Leave a tail of about 30 cm to attach the fabric to the hair barrette.

To make a crown with a tip higher in the middle crochet a shell of 6 instead of 4, two treble crochet in the middle with a piquet (chain 3) in first one.

You can use this pattern to make all the hair barrettes that you like as long as you give me credit in your publication.

  1. Am I missing something in the directions? Are these made over purchased barrettes or how do they fasten in the hair?

  2. Hi Sherry,

    Yes the fabric is attached to a french barrette, you can see the list of materials I have used to crochet them beside the picture containing 6 yarn balls.

  3. How do you attach the completed yarn pattern to the barrette?

  4. Do you first make it then glue it to the top of the barrette or do you work it on the barrette right from the start? Thanks for the pattern. I can’t wait to make some.

  5. Hi and thanks for your comments,

    I normally sew the fabric to the barrette by leaving a tail of about 30 cm of the same working yarn. That way I make sure there won’t be any other thread in the piece and also it will be weaved all together.

    Sometimes I use a piece of felt and glue them together, but also sew the piece to the barrette.

    I would love to see your hair clips when they are ready! Post a link in the comments please
