The Hidra headband was inspired by fall walks in the forest where I live - hiedra means ivy in Spanish.

Hiedra will keep your ears very warm even on colder days. It’s a quick and fun knit using up very little worsted weight yarn. The headband is worked flat with a beautiful plant motif and braids made with an interesting technique dropping and picking up stitches.

The headband has two fit variations to chose from. A narrow and a wide fit depending on how much of the head you want to cover.

There is a complementary mitts pattern to go with the headband - Use code HIEDRA to get a discount when buying both patterns.
