It has been quite some time since I posted a free pattern. So I thought I would post a couple of headband patterns which would make an easy to make an accessory for this summer and a great way to use that scrap yarn we all have been holding onto for so long.
I have really enjoyed making the summer patterns, the Flip flops and the Sporty Sandals and this one comes as the final icing on the cake. After all, who doesn’t love flowers and when it comes to crocheted ones aren’t they just irresistible? You can use them to embellish a dress or a hat as well.
Make them in any colors of your choice using worsted weight yarn. The pattern tells you how to make it for any size head and includes a chart to help you with the measurements if you are making it for someone else. Using a bigger hook than specified can help you increase the size of the flower.
I prefer keeping the headbands as narrow as possible as it makes the flower stand out. You can use a single flower or a pair of contrasting flowers partly overlapping each other, in the same sizes or in two different sizes. Just experiment with the colors, size, and alignment and you can make it look different every time you crochet it.
Crochet Headband Pattern
1. Worsted weight yarn.
2. Hooks- H (5mm) and F (3.75 mm)
3. Tapestry needle for weaving in the tails and attaching the flowers.
You can make it for any size, see table below. If you want to customize it to your head, measure your head around the forehead and reduce 1-1/2 inches from the length for a snug fit. The chart below gives the approximate measurements for the headbands.
