Crochet Feather Headpiece - Free Pattern

As many of you might have figured out, I'm a huge fan of Pinterest. I love all Pinteresting things! One of the things that I have loved are these beautiful feather headpieces that babies wear. I love the colors, the style and how adorable they look:

Old Hollywood Feather Headband Black and White - I know this is meant for little girls but it would look awesome with the black and white dress I love.:


how pretty!?!:


Black  Nagorie Feather headband, Feather baby pheadband with rhinestoe cluster and satin bow


Love that blue! So pretty:

As you can see, these are SUPER SUPER cute, and I thought there had to be some cute replica crochet pattern for a nice, dainty feather looking applique, but... I could not find one! So I made up one after playing with several designs, and I decided to settle with a variation of the Irish Leaf traditional crochet pattern with some variations and some different options for sizes and "fluffiness".


This is the regular sized applique suited for children to adults depending on the style you're aiming for.

This is the large applique. This is to replicate the look of the photographs I found on Pinterest. I found a super cute medallion at Michael's Craft Store to embellish these headpieces.

This is the small applique. This was designed for newborns or young children.

In my design making, I created several options:

Small, Medium, Large sizes
Regular ends or extra fluffy ends


Materials: 
Size G Hook (this is the set I use)
Worsted Weight Yarn (I use Caron’s Simply Soft Yarn: PinkRobin's Egg, Ocean, White
Yarn Needle 
Scissors 

Gauge: Using G hook and materials listed the large feathers should measure approximately 5” tall and 2.5” wide, medium feathers should measure approximately 4” tall and 2.5” wide, small feathers should measure approximately 3” tall and 2” wide,

Here is the pattern for the different ends. Refer to these when you get to the part of the pattern where it says to complete turning end of choice [regular or extra fluffy]. If you find that this is a little too tricky, or are having trouble with this pattern, feel free to purchase my collection of tutorials for this feather headpiece on Etsy.
