Crochet Rose and Baby Head Band Patterns – CBL Project

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

Today I have two fabulous FREE patterns to share with you – a crochet Rose and Baby Head Band pattern!
Design: Rose
Designer: Kara Gunza ( Petals to Picots )
Design: Baby Head Band
Designer: Ana Contreras ( Lanas de Ana )
Kara’s Rose pattern has been on my bucket list for quite some time.  I first saw it on a Link Party hosted by Sara of My Merry Messy Life.  The link party is called “Hookin on Hump Day“.
Kara used her roses to make a stunning wreath for Valentine’s Day.

Fabulous isn’t it?
Well they are very easy to make too!  Kara’s pattern is straightforward and the Rose works up very quickly.

For the Roses on Darla’s headband I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn (worsted weight) and a 5.00 mm hook.
I love the texture of the rose.  The design of the pattern gives the roses more texture and volume than the standard Rose “roll-up” patterns I have tried in the past.
It has become my “go to” rose pattern – in fact I think it will make some stunning brooches for another post 😉

The second pattern I tried out was the Baby Head Band pattern by Designer Ana Contreras (Lanas de Ana).  I only came across this pattern last week and I posted a link to Facebook/Pinterest (for those of you that follow along on those social media sources).  This pattern is available in English and Spanish.

Baby Head Bands
I have been wanting to make Darla a headband but I haven’t had time to sit down and think the process out. Ana provides a superb tutorial outlining how to make these lovely creations – for multiple sizes!  Her site provides the standard measurements for many sizes, from 0-3 months to 18-24 months.
I have compared a few sites (like 8) and these seem to be the ‘norm’ for crochet head bands:
Newborn: 13″
3-6 month: 14″
6-12 month: 16″
12 month to teenager: 17.5″
Adult: 18″
Of course there are always variations on the standard sizes…if you have a head to measure, measure it and subtract a little bit for the ‘stretch’ factor.  I tend to subtract 1″ to 1.5″…but everyone has a different preference.  Remember to include the elastic in your overall measurement!

 For the headband I chose to use Worsted Weight Yarn – Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and a 4.00 mm hook. The finished width of my headband is 1.75″ – the perfect width to keep my daughter’s wayward strands of hair out of her eyes.

I am extremely pleased with the finished headband.  If I had more elastics (apparently they go where my missing crochet hooks go!) I would have made more headbands straight away!

Darla is also very happy with her head band.

They work up very quickly and would make great last-minute gift ideas!
