First make a plain headband by using worsted weight yarn and an I crochet hook.  Directions below

Chain 66

Row 1) Half double crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook  and in each of the remaining chains.  ( 65 hdc made)

Row 2)  Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the back loop only of each stitch across

Row 3) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the front loop only of each stitch across

Rows 4, 6 & 8) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the back loop only of each stitch across

Rows 5, 7 & 9) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the front loop only of each stitch across

Using your crochet hook, slip stitch the row ends together to form a tube.  Cut yarn and weave in ends.

With a contrasting color, attach the yarn some where near your seam.  Ch1 and single crochet in the same stitch as your join.  You will now begin the Reverse Single Crochet (or Crab stitch or Crawl stitch) Single crochet in the next stitch to the right.  Continue around the headband in this direction.  Fasten yarn.

Repeat the same process for the top of the headband.

Make the Flower

You can use any flower pattern you like.  This is how I made mine.

Chain 2

Round 1–In the first chain made, make 5 half double crochet.  Join in the first stitch made.

Round 2 — * Chain 3, in the next stitch, double crochet, triple crochet, double crochet, chain 3 and slip stitch *  Repeat from * around until you have made 5 petals.

Round 3- – You will now add loops behind the petals for the back layer you will make in the next round. * Chain 3, in the back of your work slip stitch around the post of the first triple crochet to your left.*  Repeat from * around  (6 chain spaces made)

Round 4 — * chain 4, in the chain space made in the previous round, make 3 triple crochet, chain 4 and slip stitch *  Repeat from * in the remaining 5 chain spaces you made in the previous round. (6 petals made)

Cut yarn leaving a long tail and fasten off.

Place the flower over the seam and sew to your headband.

Weave in all your ends and enjoy :)
