A friend’s baby wore a headband with a teeny tiny crocheted flower on it and I have been obsessed with the idea ever since. Not to mention that I am expecting my own little girl in a few short weeks. This headband is perfect for newborn pictures or for every day. It is made of a mohair/polyester blend and is soft and is comfortable for baby to wear.

Sizes:
• Newborn fits 14” head circumference

Skill Level:
• Easy

Materials:
• B-2.25 mm hook; I use a Clover hook
• Fine or Super Fine yarn. I used Patons Lace but any fine or super fine yarn will work. You could even use crochet thread.
• Yarn needle

Gauge:
• Not important

Abbreviations and Stitches Used: (In US terminology)
• Ch – chain stitch
• MC – Magic Circle
• Sl st – Slip Stitch
• Trc – triple crochet

Pattern Notes:
• Pattern is written in US terms
• Read pattern in its entirety first
• When working in rounds, I always start with a magic circle; there are many great tutorials on the internet
• If you are working with cotton yarn or thread, I would recommend adding 1-2” to the circumference of the headband since cotton doesn’t have as much stretch to it.
