Whether you’re grabbing a cup of coffee with friends or snuggling up with a mug of cocoa and a good book, you’ll look your best in Elstowe. The main band of this headband is worked flat in a mosaic stitch pattern and bound off. A 1x1 ribbed panel is picked up and knitted on flat, then joined in the round and finished using a 3-needle bind-off.
