A crochet headband pattern, free!

Bloom Headband is a headband with crochet flowers sewn on. The pattern for the flowers is free and found below! This pattern uses small amounts of two colors of Cascade Ultra Pima Fine, a fingering weight 100% cotton. It is a soft, smooth cotton with a nice amount of shine. Find the pattern on Ravelry here and save it for later!

Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. If you click one and make a purchase I will earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. See my disclosure for details.

The pattern gives instructions for the four flowers you see in the picture. The center flower in the picture is actually two flowers layered together. You stitch these to an elastic headband of any size, so you can make this for a baby, child, teen, or adult. Make just the flowers you like, or all of them. You can place them wherever you like on your headband, so it is very versatile!

If you’ve never crocheted something round before, you’ll need to know how for these flowers. Good news, I have a tutorial for that! Click here to go to the tutorial.
