Sunflower Headband {Free Crochet Pattern}

A couple of days ago, I shared my patterns for a couple of pretty Sunflower Appliques.
Today, I am going to show you one option of what you can do with the applique. For this headband, I used the smaller sunflower. I felt the large one was just too big. I will show you, in a couple of days, what I did with the larger sunflower.

The headband is made with a simple net stitch. You can use this hat and headband size chart to help you determine how big you should make your headband. I would suggest trying out one size smaller, as this stitch tends to stretch quite a bit.

Sunflower Headband

Row 1: sc in 6th ch from hook, *ch 3, skip 1 ch, sc in next ch*, repeat. Turn.
