You can never have enough headbands! Do you rather love it traditional with deer and hearts or rather freaked out with skulls? Or knit both! The Malabrigo Sock is definitely enough for both versions or you could use leftovers from previous projects. Per headband I needed approx. 16g per color.
And the best of all, because it is double knitting, you don’t have to decide which color to use for the motifs, the headband is reversible.
