A warm and woolie winter headband, designed to commemorate the Knit the Bridge community-wide yarn bombing in Pittsburgh, PA (2013).

Yarn: Cosymakes Snapdragon Worsted (preferably the exclusive Knit the Bridge Colorway) 135 yd (123.4 m)

Notions: 2 buttons, tapestry needle for embroidery, contrasting embroidery yarn

Needles: US size 10.5 4.5 mm

Gauge: 7.5 sts/2 in. with yarn doubled
To double yarn, I like to wind a center pull ball (youtube has tutorials on how to hand wind one) and then pull from the inside and outside of the ball

Size: one size – 19.5 in. 49.5 cm long, not including tail, 5 in. 12.7 cm wide

Note: This headband can be adjusted by where you place the button, but I have also noted in the pattern where you might want to shorten it to make it smaller.
