braided crown

That boho look always gets my attention.  I had pinned some knitted headbands but there was one in particular - when I followed the link, the recommended yarn was something I just happened to have.


Here's the selfie - the yarn just happens to be the same colorway as a favorite new sweater - how convenient! - although I do think it looks better in a solid color. And it's not every day I'll be wanting to wear something which will flatten my hair - but I love it all the same!  I'll have to make more, because it was so easy to do and I may know someone else who might like one of these.

  3. That is so pretty! Did you finger-knit or make i-cord for the individual strands? I have long hair too, and this looks something I could actually make quickly (rather than the huge projects I have going right now!)
    Peace,

    1. No, Michelle - it's just super bulky yarn, eleven stitches, an eight-row pattern - very easy! I didn't bother blocking it, so maybe it would be flatter if I had? Don't know. I made it two inches shorter than my head measurement.
