ABOUT THE PATTERN

Living in Texas means it is too hot to wear most knit items year round. This wire wrap headband can be worn on even the hottest of days to keep your hair out and sweat of your eyes!

I LOVE wire headbands because they stay on SO much better than other headbands I’ve tried, and there are a variety of ways you can wear them. My favorite way is to make a little bun or rosette using the ends, but you can easily wrap the headband around a ponytail, create “bunny ears” or for a retro version you can wrap the headband around your head with the ends at the back of your neck!
