Crochet Tie-back headband – baby photo prop pattern

Free pattern to make a crochet tie back headband.

These work great for photographers to use in shoots with babies and newborns because tie backs are so versatile.  For the sleepy eyed newborns the headband doesn’t even have to be tied, it can just be tucked away and hidden.

These are fun to make and a great way to use up those scraps of left over yarn that you ‘knew’ you would find a use for ;)

You can use any size hook and yarn of your choice.
I used:

  • Size J crochet hook (6.5 mm)
  • Worsted Weight- (MC)Turquoise – Not sure on what brand I used but it feels like Red Heart Super Saver.  The (CC)  white is heavy so it is probably Caron Natura or Red Heart with Love
  • A yarn needle, scissors, yard stick.
Headband-
  1. With MC make a chain approximately 25 inches long.  If it helps mine is about 70 chains.  Fasten off, tie each end.
Flower-

You can use any flower pattern you want.    For the turquoise one I:

  1. With MC Ch2, join in 1st chain made to form a circle.
  2. *Ch 3, DC into circle, ch3, slip stitch into circle *  Rpt from * 5 more times for a total of 6 petals.
  3. Fasten off.  With yarn needle sew flower to center of the chain.
For the middle part of the flower
  1. With CC, ch 2 and ss into 1st ch made to form a circle.
  2. Make 4 sc’s into circle.
  3. Fasten off, pull tight and sew into center of flower.

Wala, you’re done!  It probably took you longer to read the directions than it did to do the actual crocheting.   Have fun with this, try a version with ch4’s and triple crochets or even with 2 stitches between each of your chains.
