Baby Crochet Headband

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 you wish.
