It obviously needs a flower... soooo... for the flower, you need medium worsted weight yarn and a G hook. Really, you could make a flower like this with any size/type yarn or hook. These flowers are super easy and could be adapted to any size. Here's how I did it.


Ch 17.
Round 1. Dc in 5th ch from hook, *make a V-stitch, which is ch 1, skip 1, (dc-ch-dc) in next ch, repeat from * across. Turn.
Round 2. Ch 2, 5 dc first in ch space, *sc in next ch 1 space, 6 dc in next ch 1 space (like a shell border), repeat from *, ending 6 dc in last ch 1 space. Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing the flower. At this point, it will look like a long curlicue. 




Roll the flower into a beautiful little rose, and sew it up with your yarn tail. Thread the long tail onto a yarn needle. Sew the tail of the thread up and down through the flower to secure it how you like it. Done!





Personally, I am hesitant to permanently attach my flowers to anything (crochet or otherwise). I therefore decided to hot glue it to a barrette. 



I can then attach the barrette to the hat, a headband, or it can be used as a future hairbow (if my daughter ever gets enough hair and/or allows it! hahaha)


Here's my finished product! I think it turned out beautiful!

And now, for your enjoyment... my attempts with an unwilling model.








Man, she's cute! Love that kid! 

Happy crafting!
