I wish I could wear headbands ... especially ones knit in warm, cozy wool. Blame it on my small'ish forehead, but they don't work with my face. Still, I love them and find that headbands are perfect for keeping your head warm without giving you dreaded hat hair and should you be having a bad hair day, a headband can turn that around in an instant.
Since we've been having such a cold winter, I went in search of a pattern that used bulky yarn because I love thick headbands and because I wanted to knit something quick for a gift. I came across Winter Morning and cast on immediately.
I knit this in Cascade Lana Grande in a brown that is so dark, it borders on black. Using US13 needles, this headband practically knit itself, and I finished it in just over an hour. Now that's what I call instant gratification.
