Idea Sharin' Wednesday and Interchangeable Crochet Flower Headband Tutorial {free pattern}

Wear the flower on the headband. . .

Wear the headband by itself. . .

Or wear the flower by itself.

Cute, right?  And the beauty is they don't take long to make!  You can make lots of different flowers and headbands that all coordinate so you have never ending  options!  And if you don't know how to crochet, but you want to learn, watch videos on youtube Seriously, that's how I learned many years ago and now here I am writing my own patterns!

Want to make one?


- I hook
- Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice
- Yarn Needle for weaving in ends
- Hot glue gun
- Hair Clips  (you can get a whole pack for a couple dollars at the craft store in the jewelry making section)

Base Chains:
Newborn – Ch 46
Younger Baby (3-6 mo) – Ch 50
Older Baby (6-12 mo) – Ch 56
Toddler (1-2 yrs) – Ch 60
Young Child (3-5) – Ch 65
Older Child (6-10)- Ch 67
Teen/Adult – Ch 70

Rnd 1 – sc in 2nd ch from hook, (dc in next, sc in next) to last st, work sc, 3 hdc, sc into last st. Now working on opposite side of base chain, (dc in next, sc in next) to last st, dc in next, work sc, 3 hdc in last. Join to first sc of Rnd and fasten off. Be sure to leave a tail long enough to sew the headband together.

Sew together and weave in ends.
Using flower center color - Ch 3, sl st into first chain to form loop.
Rnd 1 – Ch 1, work 10sc into loop formed, Join w/ a sl st to first sc of rnd.

Rnd 2 – Change Color for petals. Ch 1, sc in same stitch as join, Ch 2, *skip next stitch, sc in next, Ch 2, repeat from * around. Join (5 ch spaces formed)

Rnd 3 – Work (sl st, hdc, 3dc, hdc, sl st) into each ch space around. (5 petals formed)

Rnd 4 – Now we are going to make the next row of 5 anchored petal base chains. We will be working from behind the first Rnd of petals. Ch 3, sc around next sc anchor of Rnd 2 *Ch 3, sc around next anchor, repeat from * around. (Next 5 petal chain bases formed)

Rnd 5 – Work (sl st, hdc, 4dc, hdc, sl st) into each ch space around.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Use a hot glue gun to secure the flower onto the hair clip. Flower clips can be worn by themselves or easily snapped onto the headband.
Hope you like my pattern!
