Crocheted Floral Faerie Headband

I make crochet headbands for the girls, Shannon and the girls love them, and she says they wear them all the time. Shannon suggested putting some crochet crafts on the blog; as it is finally spring in northern Canada, I chose to design this simple lacy floral headband.

Floral Headband

I included an elastic back to help the headband stay in place, and to vary the size if needed.

You will need:

2  pony tail holder elastics

White, pink, and yellow 10W crochet cotton, and a 3.5 mm crochet hook.

Ponytail holder knotStart by laying the two elastic on top of each other, pull one through, and tighten.

 

 

 

 

Chain 5

Incorporate the into the first row.

row 1, sl st around elastic, 4 sc around elastic, ch 2, turn. (4 stitches)

These crochet headbands crochet together easily in one evening.  I think they would be special  party guest favors at a child’s fairy birthday party.   I create small batches of these for the girls dress up trunk so they have lots to share with their little cousins.

Here are some pictures of previous headbands I made for them and their dress up trunk.

crochet is relaxing, in the morning with coffee and in the evening with wine
