Flower Girl Cottage – FREE Crochet Headband and Flower Patterns

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

 I love the stitch – I love the simplicity and balance of the finished fabric –  I love the embellishment – I love the brown…yes I love brown…and gray…and dark blue…for myself – creams and beiges too – those are my ‘comfort’ colours…do you have comfort colours? Ones you tend to gravitate toward?  Anywho – the brown headband caught my eye and I had to take a closer look…

and I am very happy that I did.

I crocheted my first headband in Bernat Handicrafter Cotton – from my stash (I have a lot of Handicrafter Cotton – purchased from the Big Ball Sale last summer at the Spinrite Factory Outlet Tent Sale) – and a 4.00 mm hook.

When I saw this pattern last week (and shared it on Facebook) I knew I wanted to make it –

Flower Girl Cottage – FREE Crochet Headband and Flower Patterns

Crochet Headband and 5 Petal Daisy

I crocheted this headband to reach a length of 20″ (because it is for me!) instead of the 18″ in the pattern – but everything else I followed exactly –

This hooked up in less than an hour. The stitch is addictive and easy to work! Love, love, love…and I want to make more 🙂
…and I have…
I used Lion Brand Yarn’s – Recycled Cotton – and a 4.00 mm hook – I needed to increase to 6-sets of stitches to reach a 4″ width – I also crocheted this to a length of 20″.
The flower on this one is my own design – do you see a free Oombawka Design pattern in your future 😉
The only discrepancy between my finished project and the original project – was my finished width.
Flower Girl Cottage indicates the finished width should be approximately 5″
Using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton (which is usually interchangeable to Lily’s Cotton Yarn) I only reached a 4″ width when following the instructions.

I think 5″ might be too wide for my head – so this is a happy discrepancy for me 😉 but if you need the full 5″ width you may need to recalculate your beginning chain to increase by another set of 4-stitches; if you gauge is as tight as mine!

The Five Petal Daisy Crochet Pattern from Flower Girl Cottage was extremely easy to crochet – a super quick embellishment. You will need to have some fabric glue on hand to finish the flower in the same manner as the one depicted in the photograph – but you can substitute a bead, or a button if you don’t have the glue on hand.

These headbands were a pleasure to crochet – I love the stitch and the ease with which the project came together –
These would make excellent last minute gifts or even stock for your craft sale table!
