The Button Up Knitted Warmer has a modern flair with its simple, yet elegant style. It can be worn as a headband with the buttons off to one side in front or in back. It can also be worn around the neck as a cozy neck warmer. Directions are given for three sizes: small (toddler/child), medium (children/teens/adults), large (teens/adults with thicker hair). Toddler/child size is recommended for those 5 and younger or children with petite heads. The sizing is easy to customize, as well. Directions also include an optional crocheted lace edging which turns this warmer from chic to adorable. This a great pattern for those new or young knitters and it makes a great last minute accessory or gift, as it takes about an hour to make.
