Tie-Headband with a Flower

A couple Crochet Groups ago our faithful friend came with an idea for a project. When I asked her what she would like to make today, she said “its hard to explain, but you will see in a little bit.”

Within an hour and a half, she made a cute tie-headband she saw while visiting her family in a different state. This is what it looked like.

Isn’t this original and beautiful?

I need to tell you that this young lady almost never uses a pattern. She has an innate feeling of what stitch to make in order to make her work look the way she wants it. We all loved it, but did not have a pattern for it. So I decided to write out a pattern for a similar looking tie-headband with a flower.

The flower on my pattern is smaller. You can always experiment with the length of the ties and the size of your flower. This is just an idea of what you need to do to make it look similar to my friend’s pretty creation.

  • Darling! Thanks for sharing! I so admire those who can just create from scratch. I love direction and am lost without a pattern, though I do sometimes adapt them a little bit.

  • Thanks for the share, head band would be great for a bald baby so I was thinking of trying this one for sure, I just bought some baby headbands from https://hairclippy.com/baby-hair-clips and they are cute so why not try something different like this one.
