I thought that if I put a pretty pink flower on my daughter’s headband she might be persuaded to wear the headband more often and keep her hair out of her face. Luckily the internet has lots of free patterns for crochet flowers. It seems that the internet believes that everyone should know how to make one. This is the one I chose.
You’ll have to download the pattern.
