Choose your headband

Headband 1

In magic circle sc 6 times. pull tight

continue sc around forming a tube till it is long enough to slide over your plastic headband

Insert the plastic headband and either crochet or sew the tube closed.

Then sew the flower onto the headband where you want it.

Headband 2

Ch 5 (or any amount you want to form the width of the headband you would like. I like mine on the smaller side)

row 1: sc x 4 (or amount needed to complete the row of your headband)

row 2: Db x4, ch 1 (or amount needed to complete the row of your headband)

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until desired length.

Note: I do not ch before starting the Db row (row 2) because I do a starting Db  (I think I learned  it from  the Shibaguyz) It is a sc and ch2 without doing the ch1 turn stitch.

I sewed an small piece of elastic on the ends of the headband to give it a little stretch.

Last step

sew the Bow onto the headband where you want it.
