Three finished headbands

These are the headbands I was talking about in yesterday's post. They are knit in the round, very simple. One skein of worsted weight yarn.  I used Cascade  220 Superwash.  Makes three headbands and three sets of leaves.  I used size 8 circular needles. Cast on 76 stitches. K1P1 for 5 rows. Stockinette stitch for 16 rows.  K1P1 for 5 rows and bind off loosely.
For the flowers and leaves, I just went to Ravelry and looked up Crochet flowers.  The two bands Olivia is modeling has the same flower.  The light pink one is quite a bit larger because I used a larger hook.  The bottom band has a flower that is not quite as dense.  I actually prefer the top two flowers.  The leaves are very simple single crochet and sewn onto the band after they were crocheted.
Now I am working on a headband by this designer.  I love her work.  You can purchase her designs online.  She is also on Ravelry.  I am loving this band.  It is a little more like the ones you are seeing in the stores these days.  I am sure I will use the same flowers I used on these bands instead of the flower she uses.  Just because I really am very happy with how they look.  I think I will also add leaves to mine.
