DIY around your head

March 5, 2012 § 2 Comments

So, since my little knitted bow received so much attention, I decided to share another little craft I made! I made it around Christmas time and it was very simple and quick to make (if you can knit). I was inspired by headbands like this one, but wanted it a bit smaller. This is all I did:

  • knit three, separate pieces, three stitches across and about 15 inches long (or however long it needs to be to fit around your head, minus four or five inches)
  • sew the ends together
  • braid the three pieces, and sew the other end
  • glue a strip of felt to the back (for support and structure)
  • sew a band of elastic to each end

… and voila! You have a knitted headband! Just don’t make it too tight and squish your brain :)
