This baby crochet headband is quick and easy to make and so pretty!
It will fit a 6 month old baby and is stretchy enough for a toddler or young child to wear.
The stitch used is single crochet (UK double crochet) but worked into the back loop only which gives a stretchy rib.
The flower motif is one of the easiest to make that you could possibly wish for but is pretty and effective. You can of course use any motif or embellishment you wish. Pompoms, feathers or large fabric flowers will all look good and baby will look gorgeous, especially if, like my babies, yours is a little lacking in hair in their earlier years (am I allowed to say that?)
It's easy peasy to adapt too. Make it wider or narrower by adding more or less stitches to the row. Make it longer or shorter by adding or reducing the number of rows you work. Create a whole different look and feel by choosing different fancy yarns.
st = stitch
sts = stitches
ch = chain
sc = single crochet (UK double crochet)
sl st - slip stitch
With double knitting yarn and a 5.5mm hook, make 7ch.
row 1: 1 sc into 2nd ch from hook and every ch until the end (6 sts)
row 2: Make ich for turning chain (does not count as a stitch) 1sc into back loop only of every sc on previous row.
Repeat row 2 until a total of 64 rows have been worked or until the band is the length you require.
To join, bring ends together and join using slip stitch, or use a large blunt sewing needle to stitch together.
Decorate by making and sewing in place a motif of your choice.

Extreme crochet. The yarn is too thick. The hook is far too big to handle. Or you use your fist. It is fast and it is furious. It is very easy to do, but needs muscle and it needs space.
