Head Doily

Filed under: Knitting — maryparadox @ 9:51 pm

A friend had this cute headband which she wanted to reproduce. I spent some time fiddling around and made a version with a herringbone pattern.


The cast off row creates a little ruffle that sticks up in the back, which makes me feel like I'm wearing some sort of midieval headwear.

I like the way it looks with the tie going underneath my hair and tied in a bow on the side.

I made a second version which is wider and has a ribbed ruffle around the top. It is too ridiculous to wear, since it won’t stay in place unless it is tied underneath the chin, but it is pretty cute other than that. Maybe I can give it to my friend.
