FO: Folk Flowers Headband
Pattern: My own design
Yarn: odds and ends of stash, with some nameless black merino for the headband
Needles: 3.25 mm
Notes: I love headbands, and was a bit sad that I didn't have a knitted one. Since I have kind of a small head, and straight, fine hair, the wider knitted headbands I've seen sort of.... devour my head (and make me look 12 years old). I wanted something really small, a knitted one I could wear any time, any season.
The basic headband is extremely quick and easy, beginning with an i cord tie at one end, then increasing for the headband, then decreasing for the second i cord. it could be embroidered any way you wish, or knit plain in a lovely variegated yarn. I think in a variegated yarn, moss stitch would be an awesome choice for the headband. I've thought about writing up a really quick pattern, but it seems so small, I wasn't sure there would be much interest. If anyone would like the pattern, please let me know.
For Christmas, my wonderful husband got me the Dipped Infinity Scarf Kit, and I am in love! Check out the progress so far:
