A strong graphic moves briskly across the surface of this cozy headband in four sizes (XS/S/M/L) for a fun, quick knit—or work several extra vertical repeats to make a deep neckwarmer. This design pairs a solid natural gray with a bright gradient yarn in a pattern where foreground and background are interchangeable. Use soft, lofty yarns that bloom easily for a final result with a consistent surface. This project is an excellent choice for those just starting out with stranded colorwork, as it is easy to work and quite addictive.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, elasticity, and yardage requirement.
