Baby Headband with Flowers (Free Crochet Pattern)

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.



Headband Circumference (inches)

0-3 Months

12 1/2

3-6 Months


6-12 Months


1-3 Yrs


3-7 Yrs


7-15 Yrs

19 1/2




Not important.

Stitch Abbreviations

The pattern is in US terms.

sc- single crochet

dc- double crochet

sl st- slip stitch

ch- chain

Pink  Flower Headband

Making the Band

1. Using hook H, chain as long as you want your band to be (see sizing for circumference) and add 3 chs for turning. For example, if you chained 70 to get the length you need, make it (70+3) 

2. 1 dc in the  3rd chain from the hook, ch 1, skip 1 ch, 1 dc in next, ch 1, *(skip 1 ch, 1 dc in next), repeat from * until you reach the end of your chain. Your band will look like a ladder 

3. Sl st the ends of the band together and leave the yarn tail for attaching the flower.

Making the Pink Flower

Ch 4

Sl st to the first ch to form a chain ring

Work 10 sc into the ring and sl st to the 1st sc while picking up the new color

Sl st to the next sc and ch 6



Work back along the chain, sl st into the 2nd chain from hook and the next 4 chains, sl st into the same sc—1 petal made

    It's been soooo long since I crocheted anything, but these are really cute. Maybe I'll have to break out the yarn and a needle. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
