Oh color is fun! I love to create with my stash of bits that are left over from larger projects. This headband is created using classic superwash and my 3 ply handspun left from another project. Neither ball was really a full ball and I fully expected to need to add another bit of handspun, but a 2 inch center was enough!
It is created with a solid 2x2 ribbing, then a garter ridge, then the really fun part is adding the contrasting color in a 4x2 - 2 color rib. It is completed by repeating the garter edge and then ribbing. The back is sewn together to make it fit over the ear better as shown.
I finished it in 2 hours because I was knitting the whole time, but this could easily be a 1 day project. The instructions are for a 19" and a 21" size un-stretched. The width is 4.5 in. Knit in the round.
