The Athena headband is a three strand headband worked in I-cord with a base of stockinette. The bottom of the headband is sewn to an elastic hair band that prevents an unsightly bump of hair and also ensures a snug fit that won’t stretch out or cause a headache. Both sizes use less than 50 yards, so this headband is also a good project for using up leftover sock yarns. Uses 2 dpn.
2 stitch holders (big safety pins work well)
Tapestry needle to weave in ends
1 elastic hair tie
