My daughter just got her hair cut really short. (She wanted LINK hair from the legend of Zelda) So I wanted to crochet her something more girly to wear. This is what I came up with. If anyone wants the pattern let me know and when I get a little more time I will type it up and post it for free. (this weekend is family time so it won't be until later)
What do you think?







I'm sorry it took so long to post this pattern. It has just been so hectic. Gotta love spring vacation. Well better late than never. Have fun!

Flower Headband
by: AprilDraven
For Personal Use only

Measure your head around where the headband will go. My daughters head is 19 inches.

*You will need Hot Glue if you dont want to sew, I used Hot Glue Smiley *

Hook size: 3.25 MM

Yarn: 100% Acrylic Worsted Weight 4 ply

Abbreviations:
Rnd: round
Sc: single crochet
Dc: double crochet
Ss: slip stitch
Hdc: half double crochet
Sk: skip
FO: Fasten off


With Paddy Green or the color you are making the band.
Row 1: 3 sc in ring, ch 1, turn (3)

Row 2: 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn (5)

Row 3-77: 5 sc, ch 1, turn (74 rows or until you are inch before the end)

Row 78: 1 sc, ch 3, sk 3, 1 sc, ch 1, turn (this is the row that will create the button hole)

Row 79: sc2tog, 1 sc, sc2tog, ch 1, turn (3)

Row 80: sc2tog, 1 sc, ss 1, FO

Attach Spring Green or the color you are using for the trim to an end, sc around entire piece.

Leaf (Make 6 or more depending on how many leaves you want and your head size)

With Tea Leaf Green

Row 1: 2 sc in ring

Row 2: 2 sc in next sc (4) ch 1, turn

Row 3-5: 4 sc, ch 1, turn (3 rows)

Sc around entire piece, ss 1, FO and set aside

FLOWER (Make 4 or more depending on how many you want and your head size)

RND 1: ch 5, join to form a ring
The following isnt worked in each stitch; it is worked in the circle not in the stitches.
RND 2: ch 1, *1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, 1 ss, ch 1* rep from * to * 3 more times,  ss 1, FO

Assembly: Sew button on then Hot Glue the flowers and leaves on in the arrangement you want. You could sew them on but that would take longer. For extra embellishment you can glue beads in the middles of the flowers like I did.

Here is a picture to help Smiley

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.
