Free Crochet Pattern – Baby Headband for Girls

The first project made from my big crochet idea is this sweet little girl’s headband.  It’s very simple and a basic pattern for anyone to make for a newborn in their life.

Maria responded to my request, “I’m so excited about this idea. I’m 8 and a half months pregnant, I’ve been looking for a simple and easy newborn dress pattern but if that’s too big maybe a nice headband with flower or flowers for spring? Thanks”

Instead of tackling a bigger project like a newborn’s dress, I instead designed a headband.  Maria, I’ll be mailing this out to you next week .  Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your daughter… I hope she enjoys her new headband!
