Tiff is a cozy headband with wider areas to cover your ears.
I am not a huge headband wearer, as most of the time they just pop off my head no matter what I try, but this headband is wider and due to the thick and stretchy fabric, actually stays on!

Tiff is named so because the skein of yarn reminded me of the beautiful Tiffany Wisteria stained glass windows, and the mock cable I chose for this design (no cable needle necessary!) reminds me of the climbing flowering plant.

Worked flat with increases for the ear sections, using big comfy yarn and big needles, this squishy headband can easily be stowed in your purse or your car for that impromptu winter walk or your backpack for a hike in the mountains!
