The Lana Grande Head Wrap is a chunky, soft, wool “hug” around your ears and head….and, if you like, your neck. It’s a cowl, too. See the photos…it makes a perfect wool mini-cowl to button around your neck this fall.

It’s a simple pattern that requires knowledge of knitting, purling, increasing stitches, and decreasing stitches. It knits up quickly, and with so many options of style and fit, the Lana Grande Head Wrap makes an excellent gift this fall and Christmas season!
