So, I have a pretty cool pattern for you all today. If I do say so myself, this has to be one of my favorite headbands i’ve made to date!

I was laying in bed, thinking about what I should make for the blog. If you haven’t noticed by now I love designing garments (It’s just what I do) but I know there are plenty of people out there who prefer to make quick and easy projects. It’s been getting pretty cold here lately and I realized I haven’t designed a thick headband really ever. So I went ahead and made the Ember Headband.

I actually fell in love with this headband way more than I planned. It’s cozy and gorgeous, how could I not? I went ahead and even made one for my toddler so we could match! Below I also listed how you can adjust this headband to fit a multitude of sizes.


Headband is worked in the round.

Chain two does not count as a stitch.

The beginning chain is the circumference of the head, if you would like to make your headband  fit a different size make a chain up to 1” less than the recipients head circumference (make sure to keep your stitch count even). The rounds worked are the width of the headband, feel free to make it as wide as you’d like.
