Get ready for a little instant gratification—a darling headband that knits up lightning fast and is the perfect match for your leftover sock yarn! This headband is a great accessory for those days you want to add a handknit touch to your outfit, but it’s just too hot for a sweater or shawl. Worked flat and seamed, a hidden piece of ribbing at the back of the neck keeps it snug and allows it to stretch to fit different head sizes.
