Row 1: Dc in 3'rd chain from hook. Dc to end (3 dc). Ch 2 & turn
Row 2: Dc across, 2 dc in last dc from previous row (4 dc). Ch 2 and turn.
Row 3-11: Repeat Row 2 (13 dc). Ch 2 and turn 
Row 12-22: Dc across (13 dc). Ch 2 and turn. (you can subtract or add in rows, so that the headwrap best fits your pretty little head!)
Row 23-24: Dc 5 across, dc 2 together, dc across (11 dc) Ch 2 and turn
Row 25-26: Dc 4 across, dc 2 together, dc across (9 dc)  Ch 2 and turn

Row 31-32: Dc 1 across, dc 2 together, dc across (3 dc) Tie Off.

Using 4 of the embroidery floss threads, sew on the button on one side of the headwrap, so that the button lines up with the second row of crochet on the opposite side.

Flower:
Works from front to back. Smallest flower to biggest flower.

Ch 4, ss together to make a ring.
work 6 sc into ring. SS the 6th sc to the 1st sc. Ch 3.
Ss into next sc, ch 3 all the way around. (6, 3ch loops)




Sc, ch1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc into each of the 6 loops.






If you want to switch colors, tie off and begin with a new color.
(Tip: if you switched colors, be sure to keep the new yarn in front when beginning the new flower. Maybe I'm an airhead, but it took me a minute to figure that out.)
The crochet linking the loops to the circle center of the first flower are considered the posts. 
Sc around post. Ch4. Repeat on each post. Ss last chain 4 to first sc. (6, 4 ch loops)
Sc, ch1, 4 dc, ch 1, sc into each of the 6 loops








If you want to switch colors, tie off and begin with a new color.
Sc around post. Ch5. Repeat on each post. Ss last chain 4 to first sc. (6, 5 ch loops)

Sc, ch1, 5 dc, ch 1, sc into each of the 6 loops. 

Flip the flower over and admire your work! 

Tie the flower onto the headwrap by weaving yarn through the flower and tying the yarn onto the headwrap in several places around the flower. Hide the ties by weaving them into the headwrap. Wow! You look lovely!

  4. I really love this. The pattern was easy to follow. My only question is what size is this for? It was too small for my head.

  5. So sorry for the late response! I thought that my comment had posted months ago and just realized that it never did! You can make the headwrap bigger or smaller by adding or subtracting rows between rows 12-22.
