This little headband is so fun and quick to knit up! It's a perfect way to use up all of those little extra balls of leftover sock yarn that we all have laying around.
I used Louet Gems Fingering Weight yarn for this sample and I really enjoyed how it worked up.
There is also a significant color range available, so you have many options for creating a unique, creative piece.
This pattern is ideal for little girls of all ages, but I definitely think it could be worn by a grown up as well. This pattern can be easily adjusted to fit any size head by simply extending the Garter stitch band.
