Daisy Hairband

I made a quick headband a few days ago.
That day I packed a puffy for a friend’s B’day to post on the next day and went to sleep. But I started feeling that something is missing. She has two cute little daughters and it is hard to ignore them. It is also possible that they hijack the parcel and get disappointed when they find nothing for them.
Also, if you have a kid at home and somehow they justify that they are entitled to all the nice things you have (including opening gifts). So I got up and made these super quick head bands.
Gauge: 24 sts / 4 inch
Yarn: 4 ply in two contrast color
Needles: Size 9/ 3.75mm long circular.
Crochet hook: same size as the needle.
Yarn Needle.
Options: buttons crochet/ knitted flowers etc
Length: 20 inches
Width: 1 inch (it can be easily increased)
Cast On 100 stitches (for 16 inches) using Long tail cast on (it takes just a couple of minutes).
Knit Stockinette stitch for 6-8 rows (you can increase and make it wider) and Bind of.                                
With the crochet hook make a border with Single  Crochet with the contrast yarn.
When you are done, Go to the narrow side, pick up stitches according to the rows knitted and do crochet. This will give you a small triangle (There could be better methods but I know very little crochet). From the middle make a Chain of 20- 25 stitches (for 2-3 inches) and slip stich back to make it a little wide. This is for tying. Repeat this on the other side.

With the yarn needle embroider lazy Daisies with contrast yarn. They look good with beads or buttons in the middle also.
