Instructions for a Knitted Headband with Flower...

HINT: Measure the head of the intended recipient before you start so that you know how long to make your headband.

Using 3.25mm needles and a provisional cast-on method, cast on 9 sts and knit 1 row.

Next row: Kfb, k2, sl2kpsso, knit to end.
Next row: kfb, k2, sl1 pw, knit to end. Rep. the last 2 rows until work measures slightly less than desired length from cast on.

Weave/graft the sts from both edges together and fasten off firmly.

Fasten off.

Pick up the 3 sts from the provisional cast-on and work as a cord for 3 rows.
Rep. rows 4 – 24 to complete the 2nd leaf.

Crocheted Rose

Using 4 ply yarn 1 using a 3.25 mm crochet hook.

Start with a slip knot and make 30 ch.

1st row: Starting with the third ch from the hoop *1 treble, 1 ch, 1 treble (v-st), in the next ch, 1 ch, skip 1 ch rep rep from * to the last 2 ch, skip 1 ch, 1 treble in final ch, turn.
2nd row: *5 treble into the first v-st, 1 dc in next ch space. Rep across the row ending with 1 dc in the turning ch at the end.

NB: Expect your petals to curl into a spiral – this is what you want them to do.

Starting at one end roll the petals fairly tightly, using a knitters needle to fix the edge in place as you go. When you reach the end, fasten off securely. 

When you have reached the end and fastened off your rose should look something like this:

Finishing Your Knitted Headband with Flower

Attach the crochet rose to the centre of your joined leaves but do not cut the threads. Weave in the ends of the two leaves and trim.

Place the leaves and the rose on your headband (I placed mine over the join to help disguise it) and used the tails from the rose to attach it firmly to the headband. And there you have it - a knitted headband with flower!
