You don't need to be a 60's hippie to pull off a good floral crown - whether you're heading to a festival or just hanging out in the garden, this pretty pattern by Becky Garratt will help you unleash your inner flower child – it's one of the free crochet patterns we love to make every summer!


The headband is essentially made by creating a long chain that includes the leaves, with the flowers stitched on afterwards. Tie the headband at the back and let the leafy tendrils hang loose!
