1 x 25g Aran Weight Yarn
40cm (16 inches) 0.5mm width dress elastic (for elasticated option)
For full length headband, stitch the short ends of the hairband together. Sew in any loose ends.
For the elasticated headband, sew in loose ends. Attach 2 x 16cm (7 inches) of elastic to the bottom corners of the hairband. Cross the elastic at the back of the hairband and attach the other end of the elastic to the opposite corners on the other side of the headband
