Sunny Bow Crochet Baby Headband Pattern Make an Easy Baby Headband With a Pretty Bow

Want to DIY a headband for a sweet baby girl? If so, this lovely crochet headband may be just the project for you. The official project name is “the sunny bow crochet baby headband,” so named because the original published project sample is a gorgeous, sunshiny yellow color. While the yellow is pretty and definitely sunny, I chose to crochet this project in a girly shade of pink. Here’s how mine looks:

This project is included in a book called Tunisian Crochet for Baby which is a collection of crochet patterns that are all worked in the Tunisian crochet technique. Stackpole Books is the publisher, and the author of the book is Sharon Silverman.

Sharon is a prolific designer who has already published several Tunisian crochet books. If you get your hands on a copy of this book, you’ll benefit from Sharon’s years of experience with Tunisian crochet; she teaches you much of what she’s learned using symbol crochet charts, step-by-step photos and clear, concise language.

This particular pattern is rated as an easy crochet pattern, a rating that I fully agree with. It’s a reasonably quick project that will probably teach you something new. Yet because the stitch is explained so carefully and clearly in the book, there’s not too much of a learning curve, and the project doesn’t require much expenditure of brainpower. That’s my kind of project!

The band of this headband is made using an interesting variation of the Tunisian simple stitch. The bow coordinates beautifully without being too “matchy-matchy;” it’s made using the basic Tunisian simple stitch. The two stitches complement each other well.

If you crochet for charity, this is a fantastic pattern to have in your pattern stash, as you could crank these out pretty quickly — especially once you get familiar with the pattern. Sharon has included instructions for a preemie size, which many charity crocheters need and appreciate having. However, this headband would be suitable for any baby girl on up through toddler age. And, truthfully, there’s no reason you couldn’t make this project for older girls too. The same instructions would work; you’d just have to make the band a bit longer, which is easy and does not require much additional effort.

    our daughter recently gave birth to triplets. after feeding one last night, the girl Yael, I would love to make her the darling bow headband and another matching one for her bigger sister. is there any chance of getting the pattern for them online without purchasing the book. should I just try fooling around with Tunisian crochet and making it myself with lots of retrys?
    Hope to hear from you soon positively.
