2 Colours of 50g 8ply {DK} Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle
2.5cm {1 inch} Yellow Button

~ Headband ~

Start of by taking your 5.00mm crochet hook and making a Slip Knot with your blue yarn, then crochet 75 Chains. You can easily adjust this headband for a child by only chaining 61 chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2, skip 2 chains from your hook, then crochet Half Double Crochets all across into every chain.
Row 2~ Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch across.
Row 3~ Chain 4, skip 2 stitches and crochet a half double crochet into the third stitch. Chain 2, skip 2 stitches and crochet a half double crochet into the third stitch. Repeat the last step all across.
Row 4, 5~ Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch or chain 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 any loose ends.


~ Flower ~

Start of by taking your 4.50mm crochet hook and making a Slip Knot with your blue yarn, then crochet 7 Chains. Slip stitch your chains together to form a circle.
Row 1~ Chain 2, then crochet 15 Double Crochets into the circle you just made. Slip stitch into the top of chain 2.
Row 2~ Chain 8, then Slip Stitch into the next 2 stitches. Chain 8, then slip stitch into the next 2 stitches. Repeat the last step 6 times all around. You should have 8 sets of 8 chains now.
Fasten off, and weave in any loose ends.
Row 3~ Now taking a your pink yarn, make a slip knot and push your crochet hook into the first stitch of your flower. Into every 8 Chain "Loop" you made on the previous round you need to crochet,
1 Slip Stitch, 2 Single Crochets, 1 Half Double Crochet, Chain 4, 1 Half Double Crochet, 2 Single Crochets, and then finish off with 1 Slip Stitch.
Repeat into the next 8 Chain "Loops". Slip Stitch into the into the last stitch.
Fasten off leaving a 30cm {12 Inch} tail of yarn.
You might need to block your flower if it's petals are curling up instead of lying down flat. For a blocking tutorial, check out one of my other posts HERE!
Thread your wool/tapestry needle onto your tail of yarn and work the flower over the slip stitched part of the headband. This will give the flower a good base while hiding the slip stitches. Then sew your yellow button in the middle of the flower.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.
