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!
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!!
Gauge: about 2 sts.=1", in 2 x 2 ribbing
I have always been inspired, by hand knit items, but it seemed beyond reach, for me...until I took some knitting classes!
From there, it became my relaxation, and creative outlet!
My passion is designing, and I love to spin my own yarns, as well!
I love to see the finished product, on the baby models....
