Row #1: Make a chain. The length of the chain is the desired head circumference minus 1-1 1/2 in (2.5 - 4 cm).

Head circumference is a measurement of a child’s (adult's) head around its largest area -- it measures the distance from above the eyebrows and ears and around the back of the head.

Preemie baby: 11" -12" or 28 cm - 30.5 cm

Newborn baby: 13 " or 33 cm

Baby 2 weeks - 3 months: 14 " or 35.5 cm

Toddler 2 years - 5 years: 18" - 19 " or 46 cm - 48.5 cm

Child 19"- 20" or 48.5cm - 51 cm

teenager 20-21" or 51 cm - 53.5 cm

Adult woman 22" or 56 cm

Row #2: Make a DC in the third stitch from the hook. Make a Dc in each stitch of the chain all along the row.

Row #3: Turn, CH 2, DC in each DC all along the row.

Fold the headband in two and place the elastic band between the folds.(join elastic band's ends in circle).

Row #4: slip stitches along the row (stick the hook through both edges joining together both sides of the headband covering the elastic band). Cut off the tread and weave in the loose end.

Sew the crochet poppy flower (flowers) to the headband (i used black tread and sew the flower around the center, I left the petals free).

The Poppy Flower Headband is ready!
