The winter blues have me channeling my creativity into bright and summery projects. I started searching up all the free crochet flower patterns and is there ever a lot of amazing ones!! I ended up picking two of them and off I went with my hock and yarn.
HEADBAND – I purchased the nylon headbands off of Amazon and hot glued my flowers to them. I find them to be the most gentle on newborn heads and they stretch to fit any size of head, including adult. Here is the link to the ones I bought.
I started off with this beautiful rose pattern by Sweet Softies. It was an easy pattern to follow and turned into a beautiful flower that I applied to a headband for my daughters. I used a thicker yarn than it calls for in the pattern so mine turned out a bit bigger but I like the size. Depending on what size you want, use a bigger or smaller yarn and crochet needle.
The yarn I used is: Weighted Medium 4 , Colours were Blush and Sage
Crochet hook size I used: 3.5 mm
You can find the free pattern for this rose on Sweet Softies website below.
The second flower I tried out was the puff flower. There are several people who have steps to complete this flower but I found a YouTube video that made it easy to follow for me. It is in a different language but her visual instructions were very simple to understand and follow. This flower would be so adorable made into a blanket, clothing, scarf or headband.
I made these into headbands because it was very quick to whip one up and produce a finished product. I plan on creating a headband that connects several puff flowers together next. I also think a baby blanket made out of puff flowers would be so adorable but I don’t have anyone to give it to yet, so I am leaving that on my future WIP (Works in Progress) list.
Yarn used was Blush Craft Smart Value and White Craft Smart Value.
Below is the video tutorial on how to make a puff flower.
