Simple Striped Headband - FREE PATTERN

Chantal MiyagishimaComment

After finishing up the Forever Shawl, I wanted to use up the yummy remnants of my Blue Sky Fibers. It’s so soft that I couldn’t let it go to waste, so I whipped up this cute little twin headband to be able to pair with it while walking the dogs, or just dealing with those bad hair days.

This head band is perfect for any beginner wanting to take up knitting in the round and changing up colors. This pattern is knit in the round with no seaming necessary.
