Spring is nearly here and it is time to start switching from crocheting cold weather hats to spring and summer items. Sometimes it is difficult to find a fun, quick summer crochet project. However, today I have a very cute and simple flower headband tutorial you are going to love.
A Quick Stash Buster Project for Craft Fairs
The pattern for the Simple Flower Headband works up quick. It is an easy 2 rows that you will memorize and make up a whole dozen before you know it!
Another fun feature about this pattern is you can customize it to be crocheted with any weight of yarn. That means this is an amazing stash buster project to help you use up your left over yarn.
Craft Fair Idea
A quick project that uses up your left over yarn and turns out is simply adorable! All these features make the Simple Flower Headband is a great idea for craft fairs.
Materials Needed for the Flower Headband
- Yarn of any weight (see images below to see difference in how the headband will look with a thicker or thinner yarn weight)
- Crochet Hook that is 1 size smaller than the recommended hook size on yarn label. In the samples on my daughter (in the photos) I used Caron Simple Soft (pink one) and Crochet Hook G (4.25 mm). The green sample was made with Lydia thread #10 and Crochet Hook 1 (2.75 mm).
- Measuring Tape
- Yarn Needle
Stitches and Abbreviations Used
Ch = Chain
Sc = Single Crochet
Dc = Double Crochet
Tc3tog = Treble Crochet 3 Together
Treble Crochet 3 Together Instructions: [yarn over 2 times, insert hook (these will all be completed in
the same chain space), pull up a loop, yarn over pull through 2 loops, yarn over, pull
through 2 loops], repeat for a total of 3 times, you will have 4 loops on your hook, yarn
over and pull through all 4 loops
Typically you will hear me preach about how important it is to check your gauge. But, for this pattern, there will be no gauge check. Since you can pick any yarn weight each headband you make may be made with a different stitch count to reach the desired size.
The pattern will be made according to measurements, so make sure you have a measuring tape, ruler or some for of measuring tool on hand.

Ch 5 more, do not turn, instead you will rotate the chain and work along the opposite side/this is the same as if you were to turn and work along the beginning chain).

space to end, ch 2 (there will be 3 chs of the beginning ch left), slst in ch at the end.
Rotate your work, you will now crochet along the opposite side of the beg chain. Ch 2, [tc3tog, ch 6, tc3tog], repeat  in each dc/ch space to end. Ch 2, slst in the 3rd ch of the ch 5.
For the second round begin with a Ch 1, work 3 sc in 1st ch space, [sc in top of tc3tog, 6 sc in ch space, (in top of the next 2 tc3tog work a sc2tog, 6sc in next ch sp), repeat () to end of the top part of your row. Sc in top of last tc3tog, at end of row work 3 sc in each of the next 2 ch sps, sc in top of next st. Begin row with 6sc in next ch sp, repeat () to the end of the row, sc in next st, 3sc in last ch sp, join with an invisible join (click HERE for tutorial) fasten off, leaving tail to sew ends.
