Advent, Knitting Patterns

Christmas Headbands

Well, it’s been a while and I am a bit sad that my post is a knitting pattern and not some profound bit of wisdom. During the past year, I have, in my head, written 3 dozen blog posts that should have changed the world!

Finished Size: 
One size should fit most any woman’s head.
Yarn: The featured yarn is a beautiful blend (40% wool, 40% alpaca, 20% silk) called “Moonshine” from Juniper Moon Farm. It’s a 100g. One headband takes way less than a full skein. Any worsted weight yarn will work.
Needles: Size 8 16″ circular needle

Enjoy! This is a simple pattern that can be knit right up in an evening. Great gift idea for those non-hat-wearing friends.
