FREE Puff Stitch Coral & Floral Headband Pattern

Puff stitches are so very easy to do once you get the hang of it! I really love creating patterns around this unique-looking stitch lately, maybe you could tell from my previous pattern. (To view my previous puff stitch cowl pattern click here, where I show you how to create a puff stitch that will also be used with this pattern!) This pattern is for an adult size headband, but if you’d like to make one for your little, just measure their head with a measuring tape and adjust the foundation chain to fit that length. Easy-peasy! There are two parts to this pattern, one for the headband portion, and one for the simple crochet flower. Feel free to add a bow, button or anything else as well in place of the flower, all would look wonderful!
Now let’s get started!

Once again, I’m back at it using my favorite brand of yarn lately! That’s right, I’m using two skeins total of Big Twist Premium (4) Yarns. One  in “Premium Salmon” and one in “Premium Sixties Stripes”. Feel free to use any color combinations you’d like or any worst-weight or (4) yarn.
