- 2 different yarn colors (I used white for the band and purple for the flower)
- 1 button (I chose a brown copper-colored one with 4 holes)
- Beading thread (any craft store will have this)
- Size H crochet hook
Step By Step
 Begin by making a slip knot (See previous post for instruction) then use single crochets to create a chain of 5 stitches.
 Hold the chain with your left forefinger and thumb (right if you’re left-handed) then take the crochet hook and skip the first stitch in the chain and go through the loop of the second. This is how you create the second row of stitches. (The picture is indicating which loop to begin your new row of single stitches)
 Do 4 single stitches (one for each stitch in the chain) then crochet another single stitch at the end. Turn your project around so the chain you’re creating is hanging to the left of your hook.
 Do 4 single stitches (one for each stitch in the chain) but do not skip the first stitch like in step 2, that is only for the second row.
 Then you are going to INCREASE your row by a stitch. You do this by adding a single “slip” stitch to the last chain in the previous row. This will make your piece grow in a triangle shape which will become the part of the headband that covers your ears and is held together by a button. After adding the single stitch into the previous row, add a single crochet to that as a chain. then turn the piece over and continue with single stitches (one for each stitch in the row)
 Repeat step 5 (without skipping the first stitch like in step 2) until you have 10 single stitches in a row (Don’t forget to chain the extra single stitch at the end of each so your next row begins smoothly)
 Instead of adding a slip stitch at the end of the rows, you are only going to add another single crochet in order to create a new row (like in step 4)
 For my headband, I created 50 rows of 10 single stitches before I started the other ear portion. To check the headband size, you can either measure or hold the band you are still crocheting onto your head to see how much you need to crochet before the piece touches the top of your ear.
 Once the piece reaches from the middle of the back of your neck, over your ear, over your head, and to the very top of your other ear, we will begin to DECREASE. To do this, You chain the extra single crochet but skip the first chain in the row. Like the picture after step 2.
 Continue with your single crochets, one for each stitch in the chain. Then crochet an extra at the end of the row, turn your project around and repeat these steps until your headband has a second ear piece. Stop decreasing/crocheting when your row has 4 single crochets in it. just like the other ear part.
Attaching the button:
 Using the beading thread, string the bead onto it. cut off about 10 inches just to be safe.
 Begin threading the thread through the bead in any pattern you wish, making knots occasionally so it hold together well.
 Place the bead onto one of the portions that covers your ear. I usually do it pretty close to the end on whichever ear portion I don’t mind covering by the other ear portion when we put the button through it.
 Using the excess beading thread, pull it through to the other side of the headband. Make a knot.
 Pull the ends through a different hole in the headband and make another knot.
 You may even put a little craft glue onto the ends after cutting the excess to ensure they will not come apart.
Creating the flower
 Please see video in the previous post about crocheting the flower.
 I made a few amendments to the instructions the lady in the video gives. They are as follows:
- Only do 8 double crochets for the petals
 Make sure to leave about 10 inches of yarn at the end of the flower so you can attach it to the headband.
Attaching the flower
 Place the flower on the headband where you would like it. I usually do it on the left side of my forehead. Using the excess yarn on the end of the flower to secure the flower in place, you are going to pull the excess piece through the headband. Pull tight.
 Then weave it back through the headband and use your crochet hook to pull the excess through a stitching on the flower. Then repeat previous step until the flower is fully attached.
Don’t forget to try a variety of colors!
