Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round
  • Purl

Pattern Description:

This is a super fun way to use up little bits of awesome handspun yarn! In sizes from preemie to 5 toddler, this headband uses between 5 1/2-10 yards of handspun yarn!

So cute, for a photo prop, it would also be sweet for big sister and baby sister props, or for a wedding accessory!

This pattern uses beginner skills, and knits up very quickly! You will need to know or learn how to knit on double pointed needles (for preemie-6 months sizes), or knit on a circular needle, for the larger sizes. This is not difficult, and is a great time to learn! It's hard to go wrong, here!

The Elly pattern is for super bulky yarns, 4-5 wraps per inch (gauge of about 2", per inch), and is a perfect way to make leftover handspun yarn spectacular!

Skills needed:
Knitting in the round, purl

Uses only 6-10 yards handspun yarn! Pattern comes with a list of yarn shop sources, including shops in the U.S., Canada, U.K. Australia, Italy, and Germany!

For experienced art yarn lovers, this may seem a simple pattern, but let me assure you, that I have taken all of the guesswork out of sizing!

Also included, is a long list of yarn sources, for appropriate handspun yarn!

****This item is for a photo prop only, for very young children and babies; please use with direct adult supervision only, to avoid strangulation.****

Soon, I will be offering this pattern in larger sizes.

Feel free to sell what you make! I only ask that you give credit to me, in your listing, so that others might know where to find the pattern...:)

Thank you so much, to Keri Messina, in Arcata, CA, for the wonderful photos!!
