Crochet Flower Bud Headband
This crochet flower was inspired by a pinterest find. I often find myself browsing through pinterest looking at stitches and just looking at pieces in general to find some inspiration. I came across this PIN which had a flower like pattern of stitches. As soon as I saw it, I thought it would be really nice to have the flowers on a headband.
I really like the crochet flower stitch idea but there is no pattern listed for it so I spent a few days trying different things. After many failed attempts I finally came up with this beautiful crochet flower bud pattern.
When I worked this up I was working in rounds, but it could be worked in rows, it is worked from bottom upwards. It would make a beautiful edging on an afghan or even a little girls spring-summer dress. The possibilities are endless!
First pattern using these beautiful flower buds is a crochet headband.
