Difficulty:
Intermediate

Materials Needed:
100 yards of Lion Brand Heartland yarn in “Grand Canyon”, plus small amounts of yarn in “Yellowstone”, “Redwood”, “Black Canyon”, “Everglades”, and “Sequoia”
3.25mm (D) hook (flowers and leaves)
4mm (G) hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge (headband)
Scissors
Yarn needle
7/8” button

Stitches Used:
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
BPdc = back post double crochet
FPdc = front post double crochet
BLO = back loop only
sc2tog = single crochet 2 together

Additional Terms:
Chainless starting double crochet: pull up a loop as tall as a regular dc (you’ll need to approximate if this is your first round), place index finger of your hook holding had on the top of the loop to keep it steady, this way the loop doesn’t get larger or smaller. Wrap the hook over and behind the loop, yo, pull the yarn behind the wrapped yarn loop, yo again, and pull through the last 2 loops.

Gauge:
for headband, 4 stitches in an inch

Measurements:
Finished Headband, adult 22”, by 3.5” wide with plenty of stretch, child’s, 20” with plenty of stretch, by 3.5” wide, with plenty of stretch.
Flower: 3.5” across

Additional Notes (for poppy flower only):
The ch 1 before or after dc stitches should be lose. You will be slip stitching into the ch 1 itself--not the ch-1 space.
Petals are worked over two rounds. You’ll be slip stitching up, and down the petals to begin and end the second round.
