These are simple and only take about one hour to make, probably less if you are really good at crocheting! And of course depending on how big you want the flower, you can easily add more rounds of petals to this by following the instructions on the bottom
I have done my best to write clear instructions please let me know if you have issues and I will do my best to answer them. I'd love to see pictures if anybody makes one!
Ok here we go
Skip the first single crochet, single crochet into the back loops of all the single crochets on the row, this creates the ribbed effect
Chain one and turn, continue as with row one, single crocheting into the back loops to continue with the ribbed effect
Keep single crocheting in those back loops! You can see the ribbing start to take effect
You are going to make a magic ring (find out how to make one here) Single Crochet five in the ring, slip stitch to the top of the first (you will have six single crochet)
In each of the chain 3 that you made you are going to chain two, make a half double crochet, three double crochet, and a half double crochet, then slip stitch into the next set of chains, slip stitch the last petal to the first and finish off your yarn,
You can easily add more layers by adding triple crochets or more double crochets and adding on more petals like you did this row
What A Lovely Flower! We are almost done!
Joining the flower to the headband
On this headband I used a needle and thread to connect the flower to the headband.
Gather your materials
Sew the flower on, simple, you probably didn't need a picture, but I was in tutorial mode so.
The other way to do this would be to not weave the ends of your strings in, and use them to tie the flower on, I have done this before and it works well, especially if you leave the ends really long and crochet them around the whole middle of the flower. But I think the needle and thread looks best
Note: I'm sure that there are many patterns similar to this on the internet, because thats how I learned how to make a flower, however, this is a compilation of all those ideas mushed around in my head and then put together.
Now go make one and let me see it!
row 1: sk 1st ch, sc in back loop of nxt 5 st ch 1 turn
row 2-?? continue pattern to create ribbed effect till large enough
sl st first row to last row
rnd1: ch 1 5 sc in rnd sl st 1st ch1
rnd2: ch 1 2sc in each sc
rnd3: change color,
ch 1 *(hdc, dc, hdc) in nxt sc, sl st next sc* repeat from * to complete round st sl st to 1st ch1
rnd4: change color
