So, let me tell how I came about this yarn- I used this yarn about 2 years ago to make a beanie for my husband. He wore it about twice and ‘abandoned’ it. Everytime I saw the beanie it just felt unfair for it to lie there unused. Then I got it into my head to unravel it and make something else with the yarn.

Yes, now I’m happy that the yarn did not go to waste afterall.

Made with a super bulky yarn and worked in the round (oval), this headband is chic and light to keep you cozy but not so warm during this spring.

A bonus part- you’ll be learning how to work in the round with chainless foundation (if you don’t already know how)
