Crochet double strand headband pattern

 My little girl needed a bow or something to match her outfit (okay she didn't need one but that is one of the fun parts of having a little girl right?!?)  While digging through the several we already have she surprisingly doesn't have any red bows.  Well I had a few minutes so I decided to make one that matches perfectly.  It seriously took about 15 minutes start to finish and part of that time was picking the right colors and figuring out the design.  It turned out so cute and the possabilities are endless.

 You need:
H hook (larger or smaller if you want a different size)
2 colors of worsted weight yarn
glue gun
felt circle 

1st color (I used pink)
1. Ch 3 sl st in 1st chain
2. 6 sc in center, sl st to 1st sc
(change colors)
3. ch 3, (2 dc, ch 2, sl st) in same st., *(ch 2,  2 dc, ch 2, sl st) in next st.* repeat 3 more times (5 petals total.  sl st. to 1st ch. 3.  fasten off.

measure child's head and subtract 1
chain to desired length and sl st to 1st ch.  (mine was 70)
chain same number and sl st to starting ch 1. fasten off
*you will have what looks like two loops connected in 1 spot.  Hot glue your flower to the headband.  use a small dot of glue to spread the two strand apart (see picture below) 
 cover with felt circle and you are done!
 You now have a cute and easy headband that can be made to match any outfit.
If you have any questions or something isn't clear please don't hesitate to ask.  I would love to see pictures if you decide to make one-leave a link in the comments or post a picture on my facebook page :)
