I designed this headband for my daughter's photography business for her to use for newborn props! It is a very simple, delicate design, but yet, can be made very dressy. With a multitude of yarns and embelishments available, it is very versatile and can be anything you want it to be!! It would make a gorgeous addition to a Christening outfit, a special event dress, or used in holiday photos. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You will need to know how to knit and purl and should have some knowledge of cable knitting GAUGE The finished headband is approximately 1 inch in width. You create the length. For newborns I stick to 12 inches in length. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Designed and scaled to fit newborn, but could be adjusted to fit other sizes with larger needles and heavier yarns SUGGESTED YARN 1 ounces of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Any baby or sock yarns. I prefer mostly solid colors so that the cables are easily seen.
