Daisy Newborn Headband
This is a darling little headband, featuring little daisies, and using just 7 yards of wonderful, handspun art yarn! Part of my “Wraps Per Inch” series, this pattern is a way to use small helpings of unique handspun. All that you have to do, is find an art yarn, that is 6 WPI, and has 7 Yards!
Keep an eye out, for more patterns, in my “Wraps Per Inch” Series. Don’t have handspun? Use up some of those little bits of odds and ends you have, in your closet--Put several yarns together, until they are the right thickness, and procede with the pattern! To measure WPI, wrap yarn(s) around a ruler, making sure yarn is lying flat (not squished, but each wrap touching), and count how many wraps make an inch!
Here are some yarn options:
This headband is newborn size, 11” to about 15”, in circumference, about 1” wide. The photo shown, is slightly different, than pattern, as I have added a bit of ribbing, to improve fit…But it is the same look.
Pattern instructions include step by step photos, of how to attach daisies and novelty yarn! I try to be very clear.
About 7 yards, bulky, thick and thin, handspun art yarn, measuring 6 WPI (or other yarn measuring 6 WPI)
Set Size 11, Double Pointed Needles
1 Tapestry Needle
Hot Glue Gun
About 1 Yard Commercial Novelty Yarn, such as Ice Butterfly (Note: there are many companies, on Etsy, which sell novelty yarns, ribbons, etc, by the yard, or in a bundle.)
6 Daisies, About 1 ¼” (buyer’s guide, included)
Knitting on Double Pointed Needles, Knit and Purl. Very simple knit, and a great way to use up stash!!
Feel free to sell whatever you make; I only ask that the pattern itself not be sold or copied. Also, I would like to ask that you give credit, to me, in your listings, so that others might know where to find the pattern…
Thanks for your interest!
Thank you so much, to Keri Messina, in Arcata, CA, for the wonderful photos!!
