Toddler Flower Headband

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.

Pink baby headband crochet pattern with a flower.

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.

    1. Hi Helen, Thanks for letting me know. You should actually start the pattern with 46 chs. The pattern has been updated with the correction. And I also made a change to TURN at the first round.

      Let me know if that helps or if you have any other questions.
