Do you crochet for little girls? If not, you might want to find a little girl to crochet this adorable bow headband for! I mean, come on... what little girl wouldn't want it?
It is fun and cute and the perfect accessory for any outfit. You can make one in every color!

The headband is simple to make, just keep in mind, it has a lot of "give" to it, so you may want to experiment with going down one size. Check out my hat and headband size chart as a guide.
Use the headband to make this bow headband, or use it to attach the applique of your choice.
The same holds true for the bow. It makes a cute addition to a crochet dress or purse.
Be creative, be colorful, and have fun with it!

  1. Great pattern. I used same size hooks and DK yarn for my second headband. Fit a young girl's head well.

  2. Beautiful headband!!!Thank you for sharing your creations.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing.this is my first completed project,it took me 3 hrs coz I'm still a bit slow,but it was really easy to make��.

  4. I am going to make the headband for my granddaughter right now but first wanted to thank you for the printable pattern. First I've found that had less than 4 pages (up to 19) and so hard to decipher and print, next it is so different and cute!
