Crochet Daisy Headband
Specs With Sprinkles On Top!
A simple fun headband using basic crochet stitches!

This tutorial originally appeared on www.ElsieCake.com in October 2010 as part of Elsie's "Tricks and Treats" series.

While you do need to know a little bit of crochet, you really only use the foundation chain and a slip stitch to create this very easy project!

You can use any kind of yarn, and just pick a hook that will work that particular yarn. Use up all your yarn scraps, and all your extra buttons and pom poms to make a super cute accessory!

Instructions

  • How to stitch a knit or crochet headband. Crochet Daisy Headband - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your materials! I like to use a bulkier yarn for the base of the head band, and then various weights of yarn for the flowers so that you can get different-sized flowers.

    Step 2

    HEADBAND:

    *Measure around your head, from behind one ear to behind the other ear. I have big hair, so I included that in my measurement, too! I measured 22 inches.

    *Unravel about 14 inches of yarn and tie a knot at the very end. This is to keep the ties of my headband from unraveling since I’m using a big chunky yarn.

    *Now get your crochet hook and begin to chain. Make a chain the length of your head measurement.

    *Break off your yarn, leaving another 14 inches of yarn and tie a knot at the very end. Your basic headband is finished!

    FLOWERS:

    You can use a variety of yarns here, and even crochet two different yarns together at the same time. The more chains you make for each petal, the bigger your flower will be. I used the same number of chains for all my flowers, regardless of yarn weight. The chunkier the yarn, the bigger the flower. The lighter the yarn, the smaller the flower. Variety is good! You can also stack them on top of each other for a fuller effect.

    *To make your first petal, chain 11, and then slip stitch back into the loop. 1st petal complete!

    *Make 5 total petals.

    *Break off your yarn leaving about 8 inches to sew the flower down (or to weave the ends in and just glue your flowers on!)

    You can make just one big flower, or a bunch of little flowers, or a mix n match of everything! Go crazy!

    Step 4

    Sew or glue your flowers down to your headband. I placed the headband and then positioned the flowers, so that I would know what the finished product would look like.

    Sew or glue pom poms, buttons, or sequins to the center of your flowers for accents. I also added sequins and pom poms all over the headband.

    Enjoy! Spring time is my favorite season for aesthetics, so I think these flower headbands are great year-round :)
