The Vloed headband was inspired by the movements of water, especially the sea — the wavy brioche stitches mimic the way water comes and goes, with waves gently crashing on the shore.

CONSTRUCTION
This headband is worked flat in brioche stitch. The flowing of the brioche pattern is created by working both increases and decreases on the same row. To make sure the edges are nice and firm, a small i-cord is worked at both edges. When finished, the cast-on and bind-off edge are sewn together to create a knot.
