Hootenanny Band
This (head)band of owls are up to no good, enticing you with their cute looks and little button eyes. Perfect as a whimsical gift or as an addition to your own cold weather wardrobe, it is a quick knit and requires less than a full skein of yarn.

The headband is knit in the round and finished with applied i-cord edgings on the top and bottom. Four pages of PDF instructions are written and charted so knitters of all levels can follow along. Finished band fits a head circumference between 20” and 23” depending on the size of double-point needles used for the applied i-cord.
