I hope you all had a lovely Holiday/Merry Christmas!
Here is a simple and very quick headband to make – I’ve included instructions for all sizes – and you can use any embellishment you wish – I have used my Holiday Bow Pattern to embellish Darla’s as we still have a few Holiday parties to attend this year –
You could make this headband in different colours for any season – or for regular wear!
With Darla growing her hair out and the hard headbands pinching her head behind her ears – these are the current headband of choice in our house.
I used Bernat Berella “4” from my stash (worsted weight yarn) and a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook. Darla’s headband took less than hour to make, from start to finish (including the embellishment).
