The only other girl in my house is our Wire-Haired Pointing Griffon mix, Maddie – even our two cats are boys! So, there’s lots of you-know-whats dangling around here (sorry, couldn’t help myself!) and while I’ve really enjoyed crocheting hats and baby blankets for both my boys, there’s just nothing like crocheting a pretty pink flower or hat for a baby girl. The next best thing? Crochet for all my friends’ baby girls!

How to Make the Right Size Headband

Here’s a super easy and quick headband you can make for a baby girl, and it’s a little different than others because it’s worked in a round. Just adjust the beginning chain to the circumference of the head for whom you’re making it! Here is a guide for the measurements:

  • Newborn 13″
  • 3-6months 14″
  • 6-12months 16″
  • 12months-tween 17.5″
  • Adult 18″

This headband is sized for newborn up to 6 months because it has a little stretch in it. I love this pattern because it has a lot of texture, and the combination of single and double crochet make the double crochet stitches pucker out, looking like little flowers!

Pucker Stitch Flower Headband


  • Yarn: Worsted Weight, Medium 4 (I used [amazon_link id=”B003W17UKC” target=”_blank” ]Bernat Satin in Faded Glory Ombre[/amazon_link])
  • Hook: H (5.0 MM)
Level: Advanced Beginner (because we work in a round)


  • CH = chain
  • SC = single crochet
  • SL ST = slip stitch
  • DC = double crochet

The Pattern

  • CH 45 (For newborn to 6 months, which is about 13 1/2 inches long. Use the guide above to determine how long your chain should be.)
  • Join end of chain to first chain with a SL ST (it’s very important here to keep the chain straight, or your headband will be crooked) (see picture below)
  • SC in the 2nd chain from hook
  • DC in next chain.
  • *SC in next chain.
  • DC in next chain.*
  • Repeat from * across to the last chain. Then join last stitch to the first SC with a slip stitch. Tie off and weave in ends. Crochet a flower or rose to attach to the headband!
