I love this crochet rosette style. So pretty and elegant in just the right shade of pink. And two little crochet leaves just finish it off perfectly.
The crochet pattern for the rosette is available for free on the Lionbrand Yarns website (one of my favourite sources for free crochet patterns and how-tos). I made the middle size from the pattern, using crochet cotton and a 2.25mm crochet hook.
I found the leaf crochet pattern from a quick Google search here at the Wind Rose Fibre Studio blog. I hot-glued a felt circle to the back of the rosette (sandwiching the leaves between the circle and the rosette) and then hot-glued an alligator to the felt circle.
It’s fiddly working with crochet cotton and such skinny crochet hooks, but it makes a really cute hairclip.
What crochet patterns have you used for hairclips?
