|Here are some details about my project:|
|Yarn Weight||DK (8 ply)|
|Style||Cute, Eco-Friendly, Casual|
What materials did you use? Rowan 'Alpaca Colour' 100% Baby Alpaca, Dk weight , 131 yds/50gr --super soft. I used one strand each together of a blue gray and a green, blue with hint of the gray using 16 gr of each for the total headband. I was afraid I would not have enough yarn using one color. I do have plenty to make another in each color separately. Needles were 8 and 9. I did not want an overly large band since this was being gifted to my 4 yr old granddaughter. I used different small size double pointed needles for the flower using stash yarns.
What are you most proud of? As always the finished accomplishment and above all else - my granddaughter's joy! Color, yarn and button were her choice contributions.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project was fast -- a nicely finished product with endless adornment possibility to meet anyone's creative abilities while at the same time mastering some great techniques. I have always liked using double pointed needles because they are such a conundrum and I love the challenge to master but circular needles are certainly a wonder this side of heaven!!
