Hello my crafties!
I hope this post finds you well, by the time you read this and watch my video I will be in Napa, California. AKA Wine Country! I am so excited, and the following is going to be the best accessory! Maybe I should have added some grape leaves to this pattern…
Anyway, let’s get into it! This post and video are a tutorial on the floral headpiece. Can you say obsessed? I am so sorry to say that the pattern is going to be posted most likely with Monday’s post. I was planning on writing it during the 6 hour plane ride…but then I forgot I was traveling with two 3-year olds, haha.
But, if you’re learning to crochet this is a perfect pattern to get yourself more confident and used to mixing stitches. The video is below, and some descriptions and tips on the pattern that will come out Monday are following the video! Enjoy!
So, for the headband part, it’s totally your call how long you make it. I chained 142 and I was able to tie it around my head and even make a good bow, but you might want it to be longer, shorter, be an actual
headband (you know, one that is connected – for that, Just chain your desired length, work the pattern and sew ends together).
After you have chained your desired headband piece, I worked three rows. The first was Single Crochet (SC) all the way across. I chained 1 and turned, Half Double Crocheted (HDC) in each stitch and the third and final row of the band I made was SC all the way across.
For the flowers, I mixed large flowers with small flowers. A lot of the fashionable floral headbands I have seen have only one size of flowers. I chose to mix them because I felt it looked more natural. You could go out in a garden and no two flowers would be the same size.
For both patterns, I created a ring by chaining and connecting to the first chain that was made, but if you’re more advanced feel free to make a magic circle, or use your own flower patterns!
I made my petals by chaining, and then in each of chained petal loops I crocheted 1SC, 1HDC, 2DC, 1HDC, 1SC. I love using this sequence for flower petals because it makes the petal look natural. Yes, I realize a crocheted flower will never look like the real thing, but you should at least try #amiright?
