These adorable crocheted headbands are cute and pretty on little girls and grown-up ones, too! With all the flower options and colors you can select, the possibilities are endless. The flowers included in the pattern are a rose, sunflower, and a mum. (The pattern includes instructions for a simple headband, or you can sew the flowers onto a store bought headband, as shown on the pink and cream rose headband in the photos.)
