Hey Guys!

Are you guy's as "in love" with spring/summer crochet projects as I am?

Because let's get real here...

They are always so QUICK and EASY! 

Today we'll be working on the Nora headband. A great beginner's project. You can easily whip this headband up in under half an hour! I love making these headbands as gifts for friend's and family, they are always a win! 

The Nora headband uses a gorgeous textured stitch: The Sedge Stitch. 

This stitch may sound (or even look) intimating but I seriously can't express how repetitive and quick it works up. I decided I would always provide you guys with measurements for different sizes so you can easily make this headband for a multitude of people!
