My mom made a request for her birthday for a knitted headband based on a pattern she found on Knitty. I didn’t have enough time to make it before her birthday, but I had plenty of time to make it for Mother’s Day.
It’s has a bit of an odd shape so it covers your head while still allowing you to put up your hair.
I thought it turned out decently, but my favorite part is the horse button that I found at Tender Buttons. I literally stumbled upon this store on the Upper East Side while on an errand and wondering where on earth I could buy buttons within walking distance. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in need of a button.
Since I had lots of extra yarn and time, I decided to make a matching scarf. Knit 2, Purl 2, to match the headband.
