Forget Me Not Headband - free tutorial


For this lovely headband I used a variation of my flower pattern which you will find below. 

Pattern requirements
Skill: Beginner / Easy
Hook and yarn: for this project I used a 1.9mm (B1-E4) hook. Gassed, mercerized light yarn. However, if you use other sizes of yarn for this project, you should consult the label of your yarn/thread because it always gives information about recommended hook sizes. Please bear in mind that the size of yarn and hook influence the size of the finished project.

Gauge: not important for this project.

Used terms: chain (ch), single crochet (sc), treble /triple crochet (tr), slip stitch (sl st.).

Forget me not variation

Chain 5 and join with 1st chain to make ring.

Round 1: sc 5 in ring.

Round 2: *chain 4 and (in the same chain space) tr 2, chain 3 and make a sl st.

Make another sl st into the next chain (space) and repeat the pattern from * to *. 

Make 5 petals.    

After you make the flower, chain 10.

And then chain 5 more for the next flower.

To make the ring for the next flower, sl st in the 5th chain from hook. 
                     Make 5 sc in the ring.

Don't mind the chain. Just let it dangle while you make your sc. 
Here are all 5 sc made. We have the foundation ready so now you can start the rounds.    

Chain 4 and do the pattern given above. 

And the second flower is done. Now, crochet on until you get the desired length

This is what it looks like from behind.
Now, if you make a headband or a ribbon, you can leave the ends as they are. 
However, if you want to make a necklace (closed loop), just chain 10 and join with the very first flower by a sl st (shown in pic above).

Enjoy it!
