This band is perfect for last minute gifts. I wanted a new, slightly chunky, headband that could fit a variety of sizes. This whips up in about an hour and takes less then 1 skein of Lion Brand Tweed Stripes.
Tweed Stripes is a soft and colorful yarn, available in many different colors. I LOVE this yarn and hope you will too.
