Knit your Flower Headband and Hairclip
Some light, airy knitting for those hot August days! What better to make for August then a sweet flower headband or hairclip? I like to use cotton so they can be thrown into the wash, but feel free to use whatever worsted weight you like.
Needles: US size six
Yarn: Worsted, in MC and CC
Gauge: Not necessary.
Thin (thick) – headband
Small (large) – flower
Cast on 35 (50) sts with CC.
Row one: Knit.
Row two: *k1, bind off five (eight); rep from * to end.
Cut yarn, pull through remaining sts. Fasten into flower shape.
Cast on 5 (9) sts with MC.
*K2tog, K1; rep from * to last st. K1.
Repeat for desired length. The headband shown on my almost five year old is about 19”. You want it to be a little snug so it’ll stay on!
Sew end. This can be super messy – your flower is going to be covering it up.
Sew flower(s) on top of seam.
Viola! Wear with pride!
You can also glue a flower onto a hairclip! Super cute, quick and easy!
