I started making one of these for my Etsy shop and I loved it so much that I made the pattern so I could make more. Yeah, a bunch of people are getting these for Christmas this year. This pattern is available in PDF form on my blog in case you want to save it or print it, plus additional yarn notes and stuff in case you need clarification. http://fanofstuff.com/summer-twirl-headband-with-i-cord-ties-free-knitting-pattern/

It's also on Ravelry, so if you make one I'd love to see! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/summer-twirl-headband-with-i-cord-ties

Otherwise, here's the headband and pattern.

And a little more on how it looks.

And some crappy ones on a model. Trust me, the ones I modeled were worse because you could never see the headband. Photographer I ain't.

Summer Twirl Headband with I-cord Ties

2 size 10.5 double pointed needles
1 pair size 11 needles
Cable Needle
30 yards of Diva Sequin in Istanbul, or another worsted weight yarn*

P2tog purl 2 together, decrease
K2tog knit 2 together, decrease

1st I-cord Tie
Cast on 4 stitches using one strand of Diva Sequin onto one 10.5 double pointed needle.

These are beautiful!  Thanks for the yarn suggestions as well...ha...I printed your pattern from the blog because I was so excited that I did not even realize you had posted it here!

Got to make a bunch of these for holiday gifts for sure!  Love that they are adjustable with the ties.

These look perfect for the colder weather...also the tie fatlstening wouldnt mess up your hair as much as the slip on styles!
