This cozy, double-knit (and thus reversible!) headband is the perfect outlet for winter frustrations. The harsh words are delightfully surprising when paired with the traditional aesthetic of many wintry woollens.

But why limit your frustrations to a single language?

Ich hasse Winter!
¡Odio el invierno!
Я ненавижу зиму!

Choose from German/English, Spanish/English, and Russian/English.

(For those with conflicted feelings, there’s also an all-English version, which allows you to also say “I love winter”, too.)

Gauge for plain stockinette: 25.5 sts/40 rnds = 4”
Gauge for double-knit stockinette: 21.5 sts/37 rnds = 4”

Note regarding yardage: Each color requires approximately half a skein of Shetland. I was able to use the same skein for two different headbands without worrying about running out of yarn.
