Pattern Description:

As defined by Urban Dictionary, a "Bow Head" is a "woman who wears a bow in her hair, who often has an annoyingly perky personality and may be overly interested in things like her sorority". Reminds me of Elle Woods in "Legally Blond" or Shelly in "The Housebunny"! Who doesn't love a perky girl with a big bow in her hair? This headband is especially nice to have in the winter when you want to keep your ears from freezing while maintaining your cute girly style! It knits up super quickly with bulky yarn and large needles (yesssss) and uses less than half of a ball 'o yarn, so why not make a matching headband for your friend while you're at it? Have fun!
