These three headbands are great projects for a first time lace knitter or as a quick and easy gift — You can knit all three from one skein of yarn. Pick more ornamental closure buttons for added embellishment. Finished length is determined by measurement of person’s head. Shown in CotLin.

Charts are provided for each pattern.

From the Knit Picks pattern:

One skein can make 2-3 headbands depending on gauge and length. We were able to get three headbands from one skein.

With the cotton-blend yarn and the lace pattern, these headbands have a tendency to stretch. Keep this in mind when you determine the length of the headband.
