Who doesn’t love a cute headband on a messy hair day? I sure do, but as I searched through the Ravelry database I noticed that the majority of headbands were thicker. This pattern is for a thinner headband, around an inch wide, made to push you hair out of your face instead of covering up all of your head.

Linen stitch adds an interesting texture on both the right and wrong side, resulting in a reversible headband. As an added bonus, this is a quick knit, perfect for stash busting or for a last minute gift!

There are two options for the headband, a longer headband that can be tied or a close fitting headband. This pattern can be adapted for any gauge, yarn weight, or head size.
