String of Pearls Headband makes for both an interesting knit and a piece of jewellery to top your outfit on colder days. A mix of bobbles, cables and moss stitch will keep you occupied in the nicest of ways. The headband is worked back and forth in a long strip and is sewn together at the end - a provisional cast-on will help make the seam invisible. Enjoy knitting your new headband!
