This is a great way to use up stash yarn taking over your craft space. I used worsted weight yarn, but "Simply Soft" tends to be closer to a DK. It is so soft to work with, and I tend to use it often! Doubling the yarn helps keep it from curling in on itself and adds extra warmth to the headband. Two sizes are offered - the small size will fit heads 19-20 inches and the larger size will fit heads 21-23 inches. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl short rows - instructions provided crochet GAUGE 4 sts and 5.5 rows = 1 inch in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Small size length - 17.25 inches (stretchy) Large size length - 19 inches (stretchy) SUGGESTED YARN 110 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Caron

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
