Headband Pattern $2.95 + tx or free with yarn purchase
Use with any colors you like!
Our Wheely Wooly Farm Headband Pattern is also for sale for $2.95 + 5% sales tax, or it's free with a purchase of a skein of yarn! We also recommend the 'Headband Kit', which includes the trim yarn for the crocheted border and a matching pre-made crocheted flower. (The Headband Kit sells for $3.95 + tx) The pattern does not include instructions for the flower. The kit colors are constantly changing, so email for color availability.
If you'd like to use your own spun yarn, chose either a light worsted or DK (Number 3) to worsted or aran or medium(Number 4) weight yarn. The crocheted border can be made with any fine or fingering (Number 1) weight yarn.
In this photo, I've used Gracelyn's stunning yarn. She was born a moorit, but has faded to this super unique and stunning light gray with a sheen like silk! It's so lovely paired with this Lake Michigan blue color! These two colors together are so pretty in January, when everything is icy and blue skies return!
Sometimes, we have Headband Kits and patterns for sale at the market. Watch for availability! These headbands are popular with all ages and make great gifts for christmas! Once you learn how to make them, you can make a couple in an evening. Everyone loves a handmade gift...especially one that keeps you warm...with style!
