I am always looking for headwear I can knit myself. I have a weirdly small head - not quite adult size but larger than a child. Since I can't buy stuff made in the store, I like to just knit my own things. This headband is perfect! I love the vintage vibe it gives and the adjustability for sizing!
This headband is simple but is a great accessory for any outfit. It works well any time of year. Since mine is a little wide for my head, it'll keep my ears warm in the winter. In the summer, however, it doesn't warm my ears so much that it's uncomfortable to wear. This headband is quickly becoming my go-to accessory when my hair is in my face, and I need it out immediately.
The pattern recommends using worsted weight yarn, but I made a few with chunky yarn (leftover from my blanket sweater!!), and they worked out great! I also did 9 sts wide instead of 11 sts. Again, my head is weirdly small, so this fit me better. To be honest, I also had trouble figuring out how she did the knot (I was able to do one and then couldn't figure it out), so I just double knotted them and that seems to work fine.
