My sister stopped by for a visit the other day so I quickly pulled her outside for an impromptu photoshoot to showcase these crochet headbands. A simple crochet flower adds the perfect pop of texture and interest to each one!

This fun pattern needs less than a skein of yarn and is an easy way to use up some of your yarn stash!
- Chunky Yarn (I used Bernat Softee Chunky)
- 9 mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
You could also use worsted weight yarn or cotton yarn, just adjust the hook size accordingly.
Because I have taken photos of each step, I haven’t used common crochet abbreviations like sl st. My hope is that the step-by-step visuals make the flower crochet pattern clear and easy to understand.
Crochet flower free pattern:
1 – Chain 6.
2 – Slip stitch into the first chain to create a magic ring.
3 – Chain 2.
4 – Double crochet 10 stitches into the circle. Slip stitch to join your last double crochet into the space left by the first chain 2.
5. Chain 3.
6 – Slip stitch into the second stitch from the chain. This will create a little loop.
7 – Repeat (chain 3, slip stitch into the second stitch) all the way around. This should leave you with five loops.
8 – Into each loop crochet this pattern: single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, half double crochet, single crochet.
This is what the first petal will look like:
Half double crochet.
Half double crochet.
9. When you have finished crocheting the petal pattern into each loop, you will be left with 5 petals. Slip stitch to join, tie off the yarn and use a tapestry needle to sew in any loose ends.
Adding ribbon and buttons is the fun part! I like to tread the buttons with yarn and attache them and the ribbon to the little crochet flowers with a hot glue gun . Then I add a safety pin to the back of the finished crochet flower so that it can be attached to almost anything!
