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!!!/keriamessinaphotography BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit in the round Purl GAUGE Gauge: about 2 sts.=1", in 2 x 2 ribbing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Preemie (11"-13 1/2 ", in circumference, by 1" wide) Newborn-6 Months (12 1/2 "-17 1/2 ", in circumference, by about 1 1/4 " wide) 1 T-3 T (16 1/2 "-20 1/2 ", in circumference, by about 1 1/4 " wide) 4 T-5 T (18 1/2 "-23 1/2 ", in circumference, by about 1 1/4 " wide)

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....
