How to crochet a flower

Crochet a huge flower to make it extra fun! I used this crochet flower pattern. I added one extra row to make it even bigger by repeating the last row in the pattern. Any big flower will do.

  1. Very cute! I made one for my 6 year old and she loved it, but it is so stretchy. It now fits my (larger than average) head. Any hints on how large to make it for x measurement? (like make it x inches smaller than measurement, etc). Thanks!

  2. Is the little girl in your photos from Guatemala? She looks a lot like my daughter whom we adopted from there.
