Abbreviations:
ch=chain
sc=single crochet
dc=double crochet
sl st=slip stitch

Supplies:
Caron Soft Pink and White yarn
G Hook, H hook, Yarn needle
1/2" button

Head Sizes:
Newborn baby head circumference, 13" - 14" 
Baby 3 to 6 months, Head Cir, 14" - 17 " 
baby 6-12 months, 16"-19" head cir
toddler-preschooler (12 months-3 yrs), 18"-20"
child 3-10 yrs, head cir., 19"-20 1/2 "

Measure around the head and then subtract 2 inches. So if you make this for a toddler and the her head circumference is 18 inches, then you subtract 2 inches and then make length of the headband 16 inches.

 How to Crochet a Headband Video

Headband: G hook (Two sizes, Larger or Smaller Size)
2 inches wide
Row 1: Chain 11, work dc in the 5th chain from the hook, skip a chain, *Ch 1, dc in the next, skip a chain, *Repeat across, Turn -5 dc
Row 2: sc in each dc across, Turn -8 sc
Row 3: Chain 4 (Counts as dc and ch 1) skip a sc, *dc in the next sc(above the previous dc), skip a sc, Ch 1, dc in the next, Turn -5 dc
Repeat Rounds 2 and 3, by alternating between the two rounds, Make the headband 2 inches shorter in length. So I made this for a toddler sized head, which was 18 inches, and I made the headband length 16 inches long. 18"-2"=16 inches.
Smaller Headband: 1 1/2" wide
Row 1: Chain 9, work dc in the 5th chain from the hook, skip a chain, *Ch 1, dc in the next, skip a chain, *Repeat across, Turn -4 dc
Row 2: sc in each dc across, Turn -6 sc
Row 3: Chain 4 (Counts as dc and ch 1) skip a sc, *dc in the next sc(above the previous dc), skip a sc, Ch 1, dc in the next, Turn -4 dc
Repeat Rows 2 and 3, by alternating between the two rows, Make the headband 2 inches shorter in length. So I made this for a toddler sized head, which was 18 inches, and I made the headband length 16 inches long. 18"-2"=16 inches.
Sew the ends together. Then sew the button on the center of the headband. Fasten your flowers on top of the buttons.
