It will be spring soon...okay, in like 3-4 months.  But it's time to stop with the earflap hats, and start with the headbands!  I made a ton of these for a couple friends last summer, and they were big hits.
Basically, I took the concept of the self fringing scarf from  the Happy Hooker, and just do it up and back.  Sock yarn, 70 stictches, unworked chain at the end to make it easier to twist in the braids.  In this style, on the second to last set (you want to work in sets of 6, for the two braids) going up and back, I'll make a loop for the ties to go through, and on the last set, either go straight around, to give the loop a little more security, or do some sort of edging, to help with the loop security and to look cute.
Here are the three I made yesterday.

All these are done with sock yarn, I don't remember all the kinds, but the black and white is Moda Dea, and thicker than the pink and red white blue and brown one.

This shows the ties best, I think

Self-fringing=leave a really long tail when you cast on and off!  That way, you don't have to add fringe.  I am ALL about time savers!
