Here is a cute toddler flower headband crochet pattern that you can use for a toddler or baby. Simply adjust the tie-string length for a custom fit around the baby’s head.
The headband is crocheted up in three separate stages; first the band and strings, and lastly the flower. The flower basically follows the same pattern as the band. The only difference is that it is only worked along one side of the loops, whereas the band is worked around on both sides of the loops. After the flower is crocheted, you gather it for a pretty applique on the finished headband.
Originally I used Bernat cottontots, but I believe it has been discontinued. My latest version was worked up in a light #3 baby yarn. You only need a small amount of yarn to crochet this making it great for stashbusting.

How to Assemble
Weave the tail end into the ch-2 sps, going in through each loop in the same direction, as pictured.
Tighten the string to bunch the flower up a bit.
Then position the flower in a spiral and sew together.
Optional: Add a button to the flower before attaching it to the band. I used the same yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook. Here is the button pattern.
