This textured hairband is simple to make and an ideal stash buster. The hot pink bow brings a splash of colour and an element of fun to it. This hair band is currently sized to fit an average lady (48 cm or 19 inches in length). However for the perfect fit measure the circumference of the head before starting and adjust the length accordingly.
1 pair of 3.75mm Needles
1 pair of 4.0mm Needles
1 x 25g Double Knitting Yarn in main colour (in this case black)
1 x 5g Double Knitting Yarn in contrasting colour (in this case hot pink)
Stitch the short ends of the main band together. Wrap the centre panel around the middle of the bow and secure. Arrange the edges of the bow it is evenly dished on both side. (Optionally using a sewing needle and running stitch, run the cast on thread and the cast off thread down the relevant short edges and pull slightly to make the bow “rounder” as shown in the sample). Sew in any loose ends. Attach the bow to the main band slightly off centre.
