Thank goodness for justification and Sunday mornings.
Now that I've got that off my chest.... a while ago, I happened to come across this headband pattern that is a quick knit which brings instant gratification in under three hours. It is wide and does a great job of covering the ears, so if you don't want to be using a hat this winter, you might want to whip up one of these babies instead.
Here are the two headbands I just recently finished.
I used Malagrigo yarn in black forest for the first two photos and Manos del Uruguay for the second headband- both chunky weight. The pattern itself is really very simple and there are other options to choose for the tie. I chose to use a button, but I-cords can be made or you can use elastic as well.
PS. A big thank you goes to Mr. Ninja for modeling this very "girlie" headband for me. I think he is still too little for his "manly pride" to be too traumatized from the experience (which explains why my eight year old wouldn't even consider the request).
