If you have long hair that you usually wear in a ponytail or topknot you’ll appreciate the thinking behind this headband. You get all the advantages of a hat, but you can still wear your hair up. Made in a summery wool cotton mix, it works well for activities like running hiking or dance classes, but if you prefer a more laid back summer, think “campfire ear warmer”, “unwashed-festival-hair-warmer” and “sitting outside with a drink just a little longer”.
Knit in the round, the stitches used to create the pattern are easily accessible for a beginner, while more experienced knitters will love how quickly you can complete this project.
Skills required: Cast on and work in the round, single travelling cables, yarn-overs
