Inspired by vintage turbans I wanted to make something that is a lot easier to wear. This headband is particularly designed for women with short hair - the shaping at the front will allow some hair to be on show, but will keep you head and ears warm!
Makes use of Holst Garn Supersoft ULD for its great vintage-look yarn colours, but holding the 4-ply (fingering) weight yarn double. Can easily be replaced with other yarns that give the same gauge.
Can be made with a single ball of yarn by winding off half the ball first.
21 sts and 33 rows = 4"/10cm over moss stitch using 4mm needles (when the yarn is held double)
275 yards of Fingering weight
I have been crafting since childhood, but really took knitting properly in 2004, and dressmaking in 2012 (pretty recent).
