Today I bring to you....
the cutest and simplest(that a word? I don't know..) pattern for a floral headband!
I've seen one similar to this one floating around on Pinterest, but thought I'd create my own version. Because I must make all the things!
And when I say easy, I mean easy. A couple hours and you've got yourself a cute little boho head wrap. I wrote it for an average sized women's head (22 inches) and wanted it to be fairly long and drape down as long as my super long hair. So when you make it the length can totally be customized!
For the flowers I crocheted them using embroidery floss. Which was a first for me! I wanted something kinda dainty and not too thick or bulky, so I'm happy I decided to use it.
Here's the pattern:
Boho Flower Headband
What you'll need:
Size F (3.75mm) hook, and size D (3.25mm) hook
Worsted weight yarn of choice (I used Red Heart Super Saver in Cafe Latte)
Three different colored skeins of embroidery floss (I used DMC brand and whatever I had on hand, a green, white and rose color)
-The length of my headband unstretched was about 60 inches long.
ch=chain, st(s)=stitch(es), sl=slip, sc=single crochet, dc=double crochet
With your F hook and yarn, ch 240
Finish off and weave in your ends on both sides with your yarn needle
Flowers (I made 7 white and 4 rose) :
using floss and D hook, make a magic circle
ch 1, and work 6 sc into circle, sl st to ch to join.
Fasten off and leave a tail for attaching to the band, and your flower is complete! so easy!
Leaves (make 11)
using green floss and D hook, ch 4
(you will work on both sides of the foundation chain)
in back loop only:
sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc, 2 dc in last st
on the other side of the foundation chain:
2 dc, sc, sl st in last st
fasten off and weave in ends going back and forth a few times in the leaf so you don't have a loose end hanging out
Attaching the flowers & leaves:
To attach everything together, I laid out my band and spaced the flowers and leaves evenly across it, about every 5 inches or so. I put more white flowers in the middle because that's where the band sits on top of the head, and I wanted more flowers there.
I took the flower, and using my needle and long tail of floss, I went through the leaf first (at the round part) then onto the band. I made a few passes to secure it, then knotted it and wove in the ends on the wrong side of the flower.
I attached the rest of the flowers/leaves, then my headband was complete! Wala!
I just love it. And it's simple enough to just wear with anything. I'm contemplating making one without any flowers next!
I hope you love it too! Enjoy. :)
