Inspiration + Design
Are you a headband type of girl? You already know from all my other posts, that I am definitely a headband type of girl. I love the simplistic look that a headband can give, while being functional to keep my long hair out of my face. What I love most though, is a headband that isn’t too tight on my head. I am prone to headaches, so a simple headband that is semi-loose is my perfect go-to headband.
Yarn + Hook
For the yarn, I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn for this headband, however you can use any #4 (worsted weight) yarn that you want.
For my hook, I used Furl’s Odyssey hook in size I or 5.5mm.
