DIY Knitted Headband

Brrrrrr it’s been SO cold here in Vancouver. The little duck pond by my place is completely frozen! It is definitely time to whip out the headband I knit myself. I wear this every single time I go outside to keep my ears from freezing. I can assure this will keep you warm without giving you that awful toque hair! Here is the pattern to all you knitwits!

Continue in pattern until band measures tightly around your head. NOTE: Make sure your headband is quite tight as the wool tends to stretch!

Cast off, ensure to leave a LONG piece of string as you will want to use this when attaching the two sides. Using a yarn needle, sew the two sides together.

    You are very talented. To protect our ears, a winter headband is a stylish alternative for hat, especially if we want to have pony tails. Thank you :)
