The fringed willowherb is a petite beauty that grows wild in Alaska. Keep your ears warm with this pretty AND cozy headband, inspired by the fringed willowherb. The cabling is fun but not too complicated, perfect for both beginners and more advanced knitters. Instructions are provided in both written and charted formats.

Sizing is customizable and depends entirely on the number of pattern repeats that you knit. The finished headband is about 3.5” (9 cm) wide.

The small flowers are embroidered on with fingering-weight yarn after the headband is finished. You only need 4.5 yds/5 m of fingering weight yarn in your desired flower color. The technique is very easy, and a tutorial link is provided!
