FREE PATTERN: Bordered Headwrap with Flower

I wanted to make a headwrap/earwarmer that wasn't too thick, yet still kept your ears warm. I loved how the border in the second color came out, with the matching flower. You can easily adjust this pattern for a child by decreasing the number of "double crochet across" rows. I have a small head, so I only double-crocheted across until row 33, but for an average adult, I would suggest doing all 24 rows.

Here's the pattern:

Materials:
US H (5.00 mm) crochet hook (for the headband and US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook (for the flower)
Worsted Weight yarn (I used Vanna's Choice, but any WW yarn will work)
1-2 buttons
Tapestry needle

Special Stitches:
dc-2-tog: (yarn over, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops) 2 times, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook.

Headband

1. Chain 4, dc in second chain from hook and next 2.
2. Ch 2, turn. Dc, 2 dc in next, dc.
3. Ch 2, turn. 2 dc in first, dc across.
4. Ch 2, turn. dc across.
5. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next 2, 2 dc in next, dc in next 2.
6. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next 2, 2 dc in next, dc in next 3.
7. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next 3, 2 dc in next, dc in next 3.
8. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next, 2 dc in next, dc in next 4, 2 dc in next, dc.
9. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next, 2 dc in next, dc in next 5, 2 dc in next, dc.
10-34. Ch 2, turn. Dc in each stitch across.
35. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next, dc-2-tog, dc in next 6, dc-2-tog, dc.
36. Ch 2, tun. Dc in next 4, dc-2-tog, dc in next 4.
37. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next, dc-2-tog, dc in next 3, dc-2-tog, dc.
38. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next, dc-2-tog, dc in next, dc-2-tog, dc.
39. Ch 2, turn. Dc in each stitch across.
40. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next, dc-2-tog, dc in next 2.
41. Ch 2, turn. Dc in next, dc-2-tog, dc.
Fasten off, weave in ends.

Join second color at the top left corner of one end. Sc evenly down the side of the headband. When you reach the end of that side, ch 5-6 (depending on the size of your button). Sc into the left side of that end and down that side of the headband until you have a complete border in your second color. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Attach button on the opposite side of the Ch-5 (or ch-6).

Large Flower (with G)
With second color.
1. Ch 4, join with sl st to form a ring.
2. Ch 2, 7 dc into ring, sl st to top of ch-2 space.
3. Ch 2, dc in next, {2 dc in next} around. Sl st to top of ch-2 space.
4. {Ch 2, [5 dc, hdc] in next, sl st in next} around.
Fasten off.

Small Flower (with G)
With second color.
1. Ch 5, join with sl st to from a ring.
2. Ch 2, 12 dc into ring. Sl st to top of ch-2 space.
3. {Ch 2, [4 dc, hdc] into next stitch, sl st into next stitch}around.
Fasten off.

Sew the small flower onto the large flower, then sew the two onto the headband, and you're done!

  2. I want to thank you for the fun, really simple to make pattern! I have a feeling I will be making lots of these:)
    Did you make the one in the example pictures crocheting into
    the back loop only? It appears to have ridges. Love your color
    combo as well! I am making a light grey with black trim one
    right now as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law.
    Thank you again!!

  3. Hi Annie! I am so glad you are making them and loving them! I didn't work in the back loop, the ridges actually come from the double crochets. If your yarn is darker than mine, it might not show up as well. Hope this helps!

  4. Loving this pattern!! I'm making them for the girls in the youth group. Thank you so much for sharing!!! I have a question about the pattern. It says to chain 2 and double crochet across in rows 10-34, and then it picks up again at row 33. So am I only supposed to double crochet across from row 10-32?

    1. Sorry about that! No, do all the rows from 10-34, then continue on as if it were row 35. So glad you are liking these :)

  6. I just came across you pattern. While working on it I realized that your row nine and my row nine are a stitch apart from each other. Did I do something wrong? At the end of the row I had an additional stitch. I worked it and am continuing on, but wanted to as about it while I was here.

    Thank you for the pattern for such a beautiful and simple headwrap.
