Knitting Pattern for a care workers headband with buttons for face masks to attach to.

The headband is fully adjustable, with large buttons for a care worker to attach the straps of their mask over the buttons instead of their ears to make them more comfortable. The large buttons are a tight fit through the buttonholes so that once the headband has been washed and worn a few times, the buttons aren’t going to pop out easily. It is knitted in two pieces, so that the second button can be moved into the correct place so it is level with the other ear so that the mask is kept straight. Its not the prettiest headband in the world, but hopefully it will be comfortable and very practical at the same time, so it saves our very dedicated care workers ears from getting sore.

You will need:

20g dk yarn with a tension of 22sts and 30 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch, 2 large buttons, 1 x pr 4mm needles. One size fits all.
