The flower on my clip is a small one. Magdalena's headband is knit in the thick size with a small and large flower.
Yarn: Worsted, in MC and CC
Gauge: Not necessary.
Thin (thick) – headband
Small (large) – flower
Cast on 35(50) sts with CC.
Row one: Knit.
Row two: *k1, bind off five (eight); rep from * to end.
Cut yarn, pull through remaining sts. Fasten into flower shape.
Cast on 5 (9) sts with MC.
*K2tog, yo; rep from * to last st. K1.
Repeat for desired length. The headband shown on my almost five year old is about 18.5” for her 20" head. You want it to be a little snug so it’ll stay on!
Sew ends together. This can be super messy – your flower is going to be covering it up.
Sew flower(s) on top of seam.
Viola! Wear with pride!
E600 glue. This glue is specifically used for things like jewelry and hair accessories. I got my hairclip from SnapCrafty.
