Roses Are Red
This pattern was originally printed in the 2011 spring issue of Knitcircus Magazine, but now is available for download through Never Not Knitting.
The sweet little rosebuds atop this headband make an ideal feminine accessory. This project works up very quickly and is a perfect way to use up sock yarn scraps. You can create your rosebuds in traditional shades of red as I have for this headband, or feel free to mix and match colors and rosebud amounts for a unique look.
