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.
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.
Start by laying the two elastic on top of each other, pull one through, and tighten.
Incorporate the into the first row.
row 1, sl st around elastic, 4 sc around elastic, ch 2, turn. (4 stitches)
row 2 – 2dc in each sc, ch2, turn (8 stitches)
row 3 -* skip 2 , 3dc in next space, skip 1, 3dc in next space, 1dc in top of chain 2.
Chain 2, turn*. Repeat until desired length.
row 4 – 7 dc, dc in last chain of previous row. ch 2
row 5 – 1 dc in every second stitch, ch1 turn, (4 stitches)
row 6 – sc in each stitch around elastic (4 stitches) ss, tie off.
I made 4 pink and 4 yellow flowers.
Ch 5, sl st, to form ring, ch1.
10 sc in loop, slst in ch1.
sc, in 2nd stitch from hook, *sc,hdc,2dc,hdc, sc*, (one petal) skip sc, repeat from ** four more times (five petals) sl, tie off.
Sew to headband as desired.
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
