Simple Headband

Simple Headband

" This very simple headband uses just 35m or 15g yarn. I had some King Cole Bamboo Cotton (DK) in ‘Lawn’, which was left over from another project, so that’s what I grabbed! The perfect small project to get used to German Short Rows – (GSR) and if you’re finding it tricky, just take a peak at my ‘Alnwick Shawl’ tutorial on YouTube and see how simple GSR really is. There’s plenty of stretch built-in so it’s a universal teen to adult fit and should take you about an hour. "
