This adorable baby headband looks great on it’s own, but with the flower it’s a super cute design. It’s modeled on a 6-month old, but it ties at the back, so it’s adjustable for other sizes as well. And if you need to, you can increase or decrease the starting chains in multiples of 2 for a custom length.
I did both the flower and the band in the same colors…. because I’m boring when it comes to colors. But looking at it now, I think it would look lovely if done in complimenting colors. And if you don’t like my flower, you might find something here at CPB: Crochet Flower Appliques. There’s lots more to choose from there.
The great thing about a baby headband such as this is that it doesn’t require much time or yarn to make one. You can use up your stash, or mix and match to match other baby items.
