Don't get me wrong I think it's pretty cute, but I guess I'm not a headband person. I was restless and wanted to get rid of some leftover sock yarn. The yarn is Knitpicks Dancing and I used size 1 needles plus this super easy lace pattern:

RS and WS Rows: k1, *YO, p2tog* repeat to last st, k1

That's it!



More pics and details on the blog. Thanks for looking.  Cheesy

it's too bad you don't consider yourself a headband person, that's really pretty! is there something else you could use it as? if it's not too long, maybe a wide bracelet? who knows.

I'm not really sure how it goes.

I think it looks good!  What about using it as a choker/necklace instead?

Thanks so much, everyone!

That's an idea, I'll have to fiddle around with it.

As always, all the craftsters are right....the headband looks lovely on you and really plays up your face and the color of your hair!

I wear headbands all the time and also consider them an essential beauty tool:  knitted headbands are great for holding your hair back when you wash your face; or to sleep in if you aren't planning to wash your hair the next day because the headband keeps your hair from sticking up and getting greasy.

Though, it would be a shame not to wear your band in public because it really is lovely!!

That's a beautiful headband. You should consider wearing it, because it looks great with your hair.
