Easy Crocheted Flower Headbands

One of my kids’ favorite things to do (Summer-time or otherwise) is to crochet long chains. When kids’ hands are little, it’s tough for them to do regular crochet stitches, but crocheted chains are perfect for all sizes. I’ve looked for projects that my kids can do with the crocheted chain, since they love it so much.

I love this simple headband because it’s something that my kids and I can make together. I crochet the flower, and my 8 year old makes the chain. Then, when my little girl wears her headband out, she can say that she helped make it (and her friends will be impressed!). My older daughters can make the flowers easily on their own. My 12 year old gets orders from friends all the time! Not only are these quick, but they hardly take up any yarn, so they are cheap….or a great way to use up the ends of your yarn from other crafts.

Even a beginner crocheter can make this headband, but helps to have a basic crochet background. For this craft, the following terms are used (click each term for a quick you tube instructional video):

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch

Quick and Easy Flower Headbands


  • Size G crochet hook (using a smaller or larger hook will simply make a tighter or looser stitch)
  • Small amount of yarn (I used a medium, 4-ply cotton Sugar ‘n Cream yarn in Robin’s Egg blue)
  • Scissors
  • Button
  • Embroidery needle

Round 1:
Leave a long tail before you begin your chain.
Chain 4, join with a slip stitch to the beginning ch to form a ring.
Ch 1, then 10 sc inside ring. Join with sl st to first sc. Pull tight to close ring slightly.

Round 2:
Ch 2, 2 dc in next sc, ch 2, sl st in next sc (forms one petal).
Repeat this until you have formed 5 petals (you should have come back around to the beginning petal).
Join with sl st to first sc.

Sl st into the body of the flower (back side).
Chain until you have reached the desired length for your headband (headband chain should be snug when wrapped around the head).
Join chain to the body of the flower on the opposite side, making sure that the chain is not twisted.
Finish off.

Optional button:
With a large embroidery needle, use the tail from the beginning chain to sew a button onto the center of the flower.
Weave in ends of yarn on the back side of the flower.

That’s it!

  1. I love this headband. It is so simple yet, so pretty. I like the fact that it is different from all the thick and overworked headbands out there. I’m just learned how to crochet and was able to complete the entire headband but had a hard time finishing off. Any pointers? Thanks. 🙂

  2. I Love this headband tutorial for several reasons. The loving presentation captures a Nana’s or families heart. It matches skill sets of younger through older giving job opportunity as well as service for KIDS. The pattern is Quick, contemporary, inexpensive, and requires input by two people thus communication..not text.. I love your friendly tutorial..Thanks.

  3. I just made one for my daughter – I only know how to single crochet so I watched the videos and now know how to double crochet!! Somehow I only came up with 4 petals, but it still looked cute. I’m pretty happy with my first attempt.

  4. I love it. I have been making head bands with seperate flower on hair bows, but I love this idea. Thanks so much.

  5. Thanks for sharing this! I modified it ever so slightly and made it into a bracelet for my daughter this afternoon. Now she wants a headband, a necklace, an anklet… It never ends, but I’m glad something so small was able to make her so happy! Thank you again! 🙂

  6. I love this hairrband, it makes me want to learn how to crochet! I’m going to go by my supplies to try it out! Thank you for sharing your your talents!

  7. Crochet newbie here~ 10sc INSIDE ring? As in, you’ll hook from the inside and not around the outside?

  8. Love love love this project! I whipped one up last night in about 10 minutes thinking I’d pass it along to a little girl I know. I loved it so much I put it on my head right then and I’m wearing it again today. I can hardly wait to get to the store for more colors of cotton yarn and buttons. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Thanks so much for featuring me again this year! I really need to do more of these tutorials on my blog – they’re fun! 🙂
