Here is a fun project for your leftover sock yarn. Barbara Headband is knit in an uncomplicated stitch pattern, that is easy to memorise as you work. Variegated yarn adds to its modern look. Wear it with a loop in front for a retro “turban” look, or turn it around, so the loop is under your ponytail in a simple sporty way. Knit up quickly, soft and stretchy, it makes a perfect gift for someone you love or yourself.
