I learned to knit by making loads of squares, and was shocked to discover that my knitting pupils were not interested in doing this over and over again, as I had been happy to! I decided I needed something that would encourage people to keep going, with a tangible end-product that they could wear and be proud of.
I added the button/bead embellishment so we could cover up any clumsy seams - this would mean there was no panic about finishing up, and it makes the headband stylish, so you actually want to wear it!
You can knit this if you've never knitted anything before, and it's quick to make. I hope you enjoy it!
