I am having a baby girl in a couple of months and keep seeing these really cute headbands with interchangeable flowers and bows.  The above link is an etsy shop that sells the headbands.  I love to crochet and would love to learn how to make these.  Please Help me!

I'm not for sure, cuz I've never worked with ribbon yarn, but looking at the big pictures, it looks like a SC, CH 1 lattice pattern. So you'd wind up with this:

x - x - x - x - x - x
- x - x - x - x - x -
x - x - x - x - x - x
- x - x - x - x - x -

x being the SC and - being the CH 1

I'm just not sure about the edging, unless that's just a strand of elastic sewn on/worked around

I agree with DragonessD about the lattice pattern. It looks to me like the first and last rows are crocheted over black round elastic.

Scruncci makes them, you can purchase them just about anywhere for 6 for about $5.  The adult sized scruncci headband fit my 3 month old with no issues.

In some of those pictures they're still in retail packaging (i.e. they're not homemade or likely even hand made). If you really really wanted to make them just like the picture you'd need to use elastic for the top and bottom and a stretchy ribbon yarn (that's what it looks like at least), but since the seller is selling the headbands for 4 bucks with free shipping it'd probably be cheaper and easier to buy them.
However, crocheting your own flowers to go on them would be cute, lots of really neat crochet flowers:

New Mommy too!!

My daughter is a year old now but I have been looking for the same type of pattern for this exact style headbands too.  To be honest, I gave up.  But, really... what is the big deal??? Why is this such a covert design/pattern? Lips sealed I guess b/c people are making money off of them on several websites!!  Good luck and I will keep my eye on this for details.  I think they use a special yarn too because they are stretchy!  It seems like and looks like the simplest thing to make too!  

To be honest:  I finally resorted to making my own bows from ribbon and buying the cheap headbands with the ugly bows and I would just carefully remove the ugly bow and replace it with a nice one that i make on my own.  They wouldn't let me upload a photo but you can go to my profile and a pic should be there to show you what I'm talking about.

The closest I have found for the Waffle Headband is this webpage.  Haven't tried it yet though!

Here's a tip! Just crochet any old band with any old pattern you like... leave it oh, about an inch or so short of fitting all the way around the head of your precious little princess... then tie the ends to a regular hair band (rubber band) on either side, and slip over her head! The rubber bands/pony holders give just enough tension to hold on. If you want to add a no slip type grip to the top/upper portion, you can add the hook side of a hook and loop closure (otherwise known as velcro Smiley ) to the underside at the top (at the bangs area), OR you can put a couple of drops of t-shirt paint for non-skidding, OR you can weave in regular hair-pully rubber bands, they work perfectly to keep the slippery yarn from sliding off your head!:D

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!

Two years too late? I just found this pattern yesterday and made one up in less than a few hours. She also has video tutorials which are so helpful.


I love the interchangeable button idea!
