My very first crochet flower headband

I crocheted my very first headband last night. It was a fairly quick project to make. My husband likes it on me, he thinks it's cute!



The most complicated part of this project was the flower/rose. The rose kept curling on it self. I lost track of stitches. It was a mess.

Pattern for Rose:
Row 1: ch44, 4dc in 4th ch from hook, *skip next 3ch, (sc, ch3, 4dc) in next ch*, repeat from * 8 times more, skip next 3ch, sc in last ch, turn.
Row 2: *(ch3, sl st in next dc) 4 times, ch3, skip ch3, sl st in next sc *, repeat from * 9 times more. Fasten off. Thread the needle with the main color yarn and starting with one side and stitching as you go, coil the row of petals to give a flat base along the chain edge 

So I started putting stitch markers in the rose after chaining.

I put a marker every 4th chain. It was hard to see where the 4th ch was when the rose started curling. So this was my solution!

This is what the center of the rose will look like. As you can see, it wants to curl on itself.


Then I added little bumps on the outside of the rose, to give it a more petal like look.


After all the little bumps were made, the rose wanted to curl on its own. So that made it easier to form the flower. Here is the completed flower type rose. =]


Here is me wearing the headband. So I liked how everything turned out!

You can find the finished headband and other similar projects in my Etsy store here!


I also made my very first pattern for an inspired Sailor Moon Scarf. The pattern can be found here!



I also made a  crochet Sailor Moon Transformation wand to go with the scarf. I'm working on the pattern for the wand right now. You can find the finished wand here:
