Lace and Summer just seem to go together, but sometimes it is too hot to wear even the lightest of wrap. This little headband allows you to have lace in your life even on the hottest of days. Worked in heavier than typical yarn, the bulkier lace takes on a graphic pop which is well defined by the yarn’s rounded shape.

The piece is worked flat and tapers as it wraps around to the back so that you do not have any bulk behind your neck. The headband fastens with a button so that it can easily be removed without seriously messing up your hair.

Instructions are provided both fully written out and fully charted.

You will need one shank style button for closure.
