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 all around on both sides of the loops. After the flower is crocheted, you gather it like a rose for a pretty applique on the finished headband.
The yarn used in the pattern is Bernat cottontots, but other worsted weight yarn will work as well. You could even use an acrylic baby yarn if you wanted to. You only need a small amount of yarn to crochet the headband. The stitches are very simple, making this a good crochet pattern for the beginning crocheter.

Hook Size: G/6-4.00MM

Rnd 2: Sl st into loop, ch 1, (sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc) in the same sp and into next 12 sps, (sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc) 2 times in next sp. Working on opposite now, (sc hdc, dc, hdc, sc) in each sp to end. Join with sl st. Fasten off.
Ch 81 (or as many as needed), then working in back loops of chains, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch to end. Fasten off and weave into loops of the headband.
Row 1: Ch 46, sc into 6th ch from hook, *ch 2, sk next 2 chs, sc in next ch, repeat from * to end. Turn.
Row 2: Sl st into sp, (sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc) in each sp to the end. Fasten off leaving a long enough tail (about 12″) to sew the flower.
Tighten the string to bunch the flower up a bit.
Then beginning at the end where the string came out, position the flower in a spiral and sew together.
