Flower Power Headband

My youngest cousin is a princess and she knows it. I’m only nine years older than she is, but I still remember the day that she was born perfectly. It’s crazy to think about how fast she has grown up; this time last year, we had already traveled to Hawaii and back (just the two of us). It was her first time (as a comprehending child) on a plane, and only my second time ever. Being 17 and flying across the Continental United States and the Pacific Ocean with an 8 year old is something you will never forget. I really love her though and she loves dressing up all pretty. So a flower head-band for Christmas it was!

I wrote my own pattern for the headband because I couldn’t find one simple enough that was somewhat sturdy. The beautiful flower, however, comes from this lovely pattern. The headband is beautiful, just not right for a child. I fell in love with the flower, though, and it’s super easy!

Materials:
– J Hook
– Yarn of Choice (I used Red Heart Super Saver in Ocean)
– Scissors
– Tapestry Needle

Stitches Used:
– Half Double Crochet (hdc)
– Double Crochet (dc)

Directions
Chain 82 (or number of stitches that fit securely around head).
Row 1: Yarn over, hdc into 2nd st from the hook. Hdc across. Chain 2, turn.
Row 2: Dc into 1st st. Dc across. Chain 2, turn.
Row 3: Hdc in 1st st. Hdc across. Finish off
Sew the two ends together, making sure not to twist. Tada!
Following the flower pattern from above, or your own, crochet the flower and sew it onto the headband. I sewed my flower right over the seam of the headband so that no seam was visible.

This is my first pattern! Enjoy :)
