This is the headband to make if:

You have a stash of sock yarn with which to experiment.

You want to make chunkier yarn out of all that sock yarn in the referenced stash.

You’re not sure you want to do a gauge swatch, but want this to fit anyway.

You like to experiment a bit.

Watch the videos provided in the links of the pattern to learn to: ply the yarn, have fun with the repeatably hand dyed color, manipulate that garter stitch rectangle into whatever size you want to fit around the head or other extremity of your choice.

ChrisRKnits designed this for a giveaway as part of the 2016 Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop. A wonderful event held each April. In 2015 our group raised $37,500 in cash donations for the local food shelves of the area.*
