Bluebell Headband & Bow Crochet Pattern

I've recently acquired an obsession for creating headbands! 
They are so quick and easy to make and can brighten up any outfit while framing your face in an absolutely adorable way!
Obviously my little sister knows how to pull of a headband, as you can see in the photo below! She's quite the little model haha When I was finished crocheting this headband her little green eyes started to sparkle and she excitedly asked if she could have one :) And being the amazing big sister that I am, I agreed!



What You'll Need:
5.00 Crochet Hook
8ply Yarn
Wool/Tapestry Needle
Scissors



Finished Size:
Headband Circumference ~  20 inches (51 cm)
This headband can easily be adjusted to fit all sizes.


~ ~ ~ Pattern ~ ~ ~

Headband:
Start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 75 Chains. You can easily adjust this headband for a child by only chaining 60 chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2, skip 2 chains from your hook, then crochet Half Double Crochets all across into every chain.
Row 2 - 3~ Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch across.
When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the band together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Bow:
Start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 40 Chains.
Row 1~  Chain 2, skip 2 chains from your hook, then crochet Half Double Crochets all across into every chain.
Row 2-9 ~ Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch across.
When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the bow band together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together.
Once you've slip stitched the ends together, flip the slip stitched part to the inside and fasten your yarn off. You don't want to trim your yarn less than 55"/140cm because you need a long enough tail to wrap around your bow.
Start of by slowly yet tightly wrapping the yarn around the center of the bow. You need to wrap it around the bow at least 15 times. When you've finished wrapping, knot it to the back of the bow.
Then taking your wool/tapestry needle, work the bow over the slip stitched part of the headband. This will give the bow a good base while hiding the slip stitches.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.




I hope you all enjoyed this cute Bluebell tutorial!

It always brightens my day when someone posts something they made from my blog :)
Hope you all enjoyed this pattern!
Have a lovely day crocheting and crafting everyone!

    1. Yes she is very adorable, and she knows it haha! She's actually my little sister but since there is such a huge age gap, she often calls me her "Mummy Number Two" :)
      I hope you have a wonderful day!
