Knitting perfectly neat stranded colorwork is a skill that requires a bit of practice. This is the perfect small project for working on your technique as it’s relatively fast to make. The colorwork chart eases you in with two colors in each round and then steps things up with three colors in each round. When you’re all done, you’ll have a cheerful headband to keep your ears warm on a winter day.
