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.
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.
Below is the video tutorial on how to make a puff flower.
Let me know below if you have a favourite flower pattern and feel free to share! I love trying new patterns.
