Simple Crocheted Flowers and Headbands

I’ve been on a hunt for the best crochet flowers, and I think I’ve finally found them! Thank God for Pintrest! There, I found a crocheted flower pin that led me to this awesome craft blog. That blog led me to the original free pattern for these amazing crochet flowers. They’re really easy to make, and they create that huge pop you’re looking for when you’re making crochet flowers and attaching them to headbands, hats, or whatever else.  They’re much more elegant that the other ones I’ve found too.

Anyway, here’s what I came up with:

Simple and Gorgeous!

The headbands are extremely easy too! So, here’s a quick and basic headband pattern for the one pictured:

Base: Chain 13.

Row 1: Double crochet in third chain from hook. Double crochet until end.

Row 2: Chain two, double crochet in next double crochet until end.

Repeat until desired length, join ends with slip stitch to make the final  product. Mine was 15 rows total. It’s really simple to customize the pattern for a skinnier or wider headband! Just add or subtract stitches across.

I’ve found it’s best to do it this way because the headbands are stretchier and better fitting than when you do it length wise rather than width wise.
