Pattern Description:

My cousin's sweet daughter sent me a photo of a headband from a shop in London and asked if I could make her one. After reworking it several times to get the right width and cable length, I hit on just the right design. I've made a bunch of them as gifts, they are lovely and take very little yarn. Made in a soft wool yarn, they're cushy, cozy, warm, and look great on everyone!

I come from a long line of crafters. My great-grandmother taught me to cross-stitch on gingham on her front porch when I was only 4 and I did great until we realized I had sewn the fabric to my shorts. My Mom has always been creative. She taught me to knit and sew. It's so satisfying to make something beautiful with your own two hands!
