Daisy Headband

Since it’s officially summer I have been having fun playing with cotton yarns. I’m sure you have all seen the Caron cotton cakes and all the cotton yarns coming out on special in your local craft shops. It’s so good for the hotter months. Cotton is the perfect fiber for making breathable, year-round accessories and garments. 
I have been working on a summer garment design in partnership with Lovecrochet which will be released in mid-May. For more information subscribe to our mailing list to get updates on new releases first! But until then I have been playing with some summery accessories. The first of which is this gorgeous crochet headband.

This free pattern was edited on 4/5/2022 to add a worsted weight option, along with toddler sizing.


Yarn; Paintbox DK cotton in Vanilla Cream or Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton worsted weight.
Hook: 4mm for DK, 3mm for worsted weight (size 4 us yarn)
Toddler size: Elastic hair tie
Notions: Yarn needle, stitch marker, measuring tape, scissors.
Ch. Chain
Dc. Double crochet
Hdc. Half Double crochet
Sc. Single crochet
St. Stitch


        At the beginning of each row, the Ch3 (also known as the turning chain) will count as your first stitch. This means each row will end in the top of the turning chain

To create this pattern in toddler size I recommend joining an elastic hair tie at the beginning. Instead of Chaining to begin. 

Set up for Toddler

Using an elastic hair tie, sc 7 around. Turn

Ch 3, 2dc in every stitch across (14sts). 

Continue same as the adult pattern.

Set up for Adult

CH 16.

Row 1: Start by adding 1 Dc in the 4th ch from the hook, dc in the next 4 sts. Skip the next 2 chs, ch3, dc in the last 6 sts. Ch 3, turn. (12sts)

Row 2: Dc in the next 3 sts, ch 3, skip 2 sts, sc into the ch 3 space from the previous row, sk 2, ch3, dc in the last 4 sts. Ch3, turn. (9sts)

Row 3: Dc in the next st. Ch3, sk 2sts, sc into the ch3 space, ch3, sc in the next ch3 space, ch3 one more time, sk 2sts, dc in the last 2sts. Ch3, turn. (6sts)




Row 4: Dc in the next st, 2 dc in ch3 space. Ch3, sc in the next ch3 space, ch3. 2dc in next ch3 space, dc in the last 2sts. Ch3, turn. (9sts)

Row 5: Dc in the next 3sts, 2dc in ch3 space. Ch3, 2 dc in next ch3 space. Dc in the last 4sts. Ch3, turn. (12sts)

Row 6: Dc across the row, remembering to hdc twice in the top of the ch 3 space to make up for skipped stitches. Ch 3, turn. (14sts).

Repeats rows 1-6 6 more times (7 daisies in total). When using worsted weight yarn you will need to repeat 8 times (9 daisies in total). For toddler size, you will have 4 daisies in DK 6 daisies in Worsted.

Do an extra row of Dc join the last row to the first row using slip st to create your headband shape.

  2. I would like to make this for a baby (6 months). Is it stretchy? If not, could you suggest a way to make it stretchy, and do you know how I would adjust the pattern? Thank you.

    1. Hi, hmm this pattern is loose fitting. Made for a teen to adult head. This is a great idea though. I will definitely look at adding a baby version of this pattern.
