Tinfoil Tiara Brigade, you ask? In honor of William and Kate’s wedding we ladies of twitter got a little excited and on top of waking up at 3am to watch the overseas festivities, we all made our own tinfoil tiaras to wear in bed while live tweeting each other.

They always say the best ideas come when you aren’t looking for them. I was aiming for over-the-top craziness with my tiara but landed on something really wearable and cute! So from our silliness comes your gain. Big tinfoil bow optional.

This headband is a great way to use up scraps of leftover yarn. Want a small, dainty headband? Use sock yarn and size 4 needles. Want a big, chunky headband? Use bulky yarn and size 15 needles.

This simple cabled headband is sure to be a staple in your wardrobe about 20 minutes after you cast it on. Oh yeah, it’s a quick knit. Mix it up with different yarn weights and needle sizes. You’ll want a ton of these!
