How to Crochet a Daisy Headband: Free Pattern & Groovy

Channel your inner flower child with this fun boho style crochet daisy headband. Crocheting daisies 🌼 is easier than you think! This pattern was so much fun to make, and my daughter looks amazing wearing it too. Learn How to Crochet a Daisy and turn it into a cute headband. Let’s get to it!

Inspiration Behind the Pattern

I’ve been on a kick lately to let people know exactly how much works goes into crocheting something. Crochet time, designing process, materials cost, etc.

Well, it’s Temu. Temu. Temu…sigh. I saw an ad in my feed for a boho crochet daisy headband and thought “hmmm, they are charging $5 for this? Wondering how much time it will take to make it on my own?”

I tried to ignore it for a while, but I just can’t anymore. I need to keep spreading the word. If you purchase crochet from Temu, Shein, Walmart, Woolworths, Target, or anyplace other than a crocheter, you’re supporting sweat shops.

I’m not intending to shame anyone who has purchased from these sites. But, now that we know, we can all do better right?

Therefore, instead of purchasing from them, I’ll teach you how to make it yourself!

So How Long Did It Take?

Well, each daisy takes about 20 minutes to make. I created 14 daisies. The assembly took about an hour or so. So a grand total of around 5 hours to make! That would cost way more than $5 on Temu…Just sayin’

What Do Daisies Represent?

Daisies are a symbol of new beginnings, love and loyalty & in norse mythology, the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility (I like that!). Crocheted daisies 🌼 last forever, and there are so many ways you can use these cute little daisies.

10 Cute Ways to Use Your Crochet Daisies

  • Embellishments: Sew or crochet tiny daisies onto clothing, bags, hats, or pillowcases for a little springtime charm.
  • Home Décor: Create a daisy garland by stringing together these cute crochet daisies for a cheerful wall hanging or table runner.
  • Barrettes: Grab the hot glue gun and a clip to add it to. These would go great on regular bobby pins too.
  • Appliques: Decorate blankets, throws, or placemats with crocheted daisies for a sweet and personalized touch.
  • Child’s Mobile: String crocheted daisies of different sizes and colors onto a mobile frame for a delightful nursery decoration.
  • Gift Toppers: Add a sweet touch to wrapped gifts by attaching a small crocheted daisy to the ribbon or twine.
  • Button Replacements: This may be a little tricky, but doable! Crochet daisies can be used as decorative buttons on cardigans, sweaters, or doll clothes.
  • Wired Daisies: Adding wires to the daisies can give them more security and make them sturdy enough to put in a bouquet.
  • Jewelry: String tiny crocheted daisies onto jump rings to create adorable earrings or a necklace pendant.
  • Pincushion: You may need to make them a little bigger for this one. Crochet a small daisy and stuff it with fiberfill to create a charming and functional pincushion for sewing projects.

How to Crochet a Daisy Chain Headband

Now that you have all these wonderful ideas to use your cute crochet daises, let’s get started on it!

Difficulty

Easy

The Yarn

I went with a few different yarns for these cute crochet daisies. Mostly because I just grabbed stuff from my stash! So it’s a little mix matched.

After scouring my stash for a DK weight in the colors I wanted, I found a little Scheepjes Softfun in yellow; Hobbii (100% cotton) in white, and for the braids I used I Love This Cotton in Tan.

Yarn Subs:  Any DK or smaller weight yarn.

Materials and Notions

Suggested Yarn:

I went with two yarns to make these. The first is 100% cotton yarn from Hobbi, and the yellow center I went with Sheepjes. You can use any yarn or hook to make these.

Sheepjes Softfun: 60% Cotton / 40% Acrylic, 50 g (1.76 oz), 140 m (153 yards), DK in Yellow

Hobbii Rainbow Cotton: in White, 100% cotton, 50 g (1.75 oz), 75 m (82 yards), DK in White

I recommend using 100% cotton because it’s eco-friendly, durable, and keeps it shape wet (and easily reshapable).

Yardage:

  • White (C1): 25 yards / 22 m
  • Yellow (C2): 5 yards / 4.5 m
  • Tan (C3): 3 yards / 1 m

HOW TO CROCHET A DAISY (PATTERN):

Make as many needed for your project. I crocheted 14, but you can create as many as you’d like.

Rounds 1 and 2:

  • Round 1:  With C1, create a magic circle (or ch 3 and work 6 sc into 1st chain).  hdc 12 into circle, to join – insert hook into 1st hdc, add C2 and pull through (tighten). (12 hdc)
  • Round 2:  *Ch 7, sc in 2nd chain from hook. Sc in next chain. Hdc in next 2 chs. Sc in next 2 chs (6 sts). Sl st in the same as ch-7. Sl st in next hdc. Repeat from * 11 more times. (12 petals).

Weave in all tails, but leave a long tail (the yellow tail from the magic circle) on 6 of the daisies. You will use that tail to secure it to the braided crown.

Blocking the Daisies

Yes, you definitely need to block these little daisies. If you use acrylic yarn, you can probably get away with a little steam blocking.

I dipped mine in water and laid them out to dry. I also recommend starching them because they do tend to curl!

Tips for blocking

  • Lightly wet and place under some weight (like a stack of books)
  • Pin them to a blocking matt
  • Use Elmer’s glue mixture to soak and make them a little stiff (this will be okay for projects you know will stay dry).

Let’s Make the Headband!

This part is easy, but break out the needle, cuz we’re going to do some sewing.

Creating the Crown

Using C3, Cut a length of 20″ and triple it up, creating three strands. Clip the top with a bread clip (any clip will do).

Braid it, leaving about 4″ tail (to add bead).

Once braided, wrap it around your head, pinch then end and us a stitch marker to keep it together (this is helpful for spacing the daisies).

Attaching the Daisies

I secured the daisies using the yellow tails. Place them evenly spaced as seen below.

I secured 6 daisies to the braid using the tail of round 1.

Attaching the Daisy Chains

  • Cut 4 strands of C3 about 20″ long. Thread one end onto your needle. Ignore the two daisies at the front of the crown. Using your needle, attach the taupe yarn to the back of the daisy securely.
  • Thread the other end of the taupe yarn to your needle.
  • With the WS up, add two daisies to the chain, by working through back side of the daisy and slide it up (as seen below).
  • Repeat that 3 more times and attach to the remaining daisies on the crown.

Attaching the Beads

I added beads to all the ends. You’ll need a larger wood bead for the strands of the crown. (as seen below)
