Another pattern for you to try & sooo easy. The pattern is suitable to follow for any size head too!
I designed this for my lovely Granddaughter's Christening to match the shawl I made for her.
Fairy Blossoms Headband
Ability Level: EASY
Abbreviations : CH – CHAIN CHS – CHAINS SC – SINGLE CROCHET DC – DOUBLE CROCHET SS – SLIP STITCH ST – STITCH
Before you begin! : Measure the circumference of the recipients head!
Please Note: This pattern is for a baby with head circumference of 41cms BUT ANY SIZE CAN BE MADE & THE INSTRUCTIONS (APART FROM THE NUMBER OF CHAINS) CAN BE FOLLOWED EXACTLY!
TO BEGIN: **CH 85
Round 1: SS into 5th CH from the hook. This forms the inner circle for the blossom! CH2. SC into this circle 9 times (being careful not to incorporate the long length of foundation CH). SS into the first ST that you worked (i.e. the CH2 you began the circle with). CH1 & DC into this same ST (1st petal made). SS to next ST. * SC into the next ST & DC into the same ST (2nd petal made) SS to next ST. *
RPT from * to * making your last SS into the first ST you began this round with, making a total of 5 petals. Fasten off. **
You will now make another two of these CHS/Flower bands in exactly the same way following the instructions from ** to **
You will now have 3 CHS/BANDS with blossoms attached!
Putting it all together! :o)
Take your first two bands. Place them side by side with both foundation CHS facing the same way. Now offset the blossoms so that one is slightly below the other one & the bottom of one petal from the first higher CH is just touching the top petal from the lower blossom (See PHOTO below) These petals must not be the ones where the foundation CH starts or the blossoms will not sit right.
Do exactly the same with the remaining CH, again slightly offsetting the blossom below the blossom on the second CH.
Now, line up the CHS so that they all run in a parallel fashion & attach the loose end of each CH behind each corresponding blossom making sure that it is running in line with the CH already attached to each blossom so the CHS are all equal in appearance with approx. 2.5cms (1inch), in between each CH as in the above PHOTO.
TO FINISH : Sew in loose ends & attach a pearl, bead or sequin into the centre of each blossom.
The headband is now ready to wear! :o)
