With spring in the air and girls who love headbands, I decided that it was time for something new. 
I always love a bit of stash busting, this time from my bits and bobs basket. What to do with all those wee bits of left-over yarn?

May I introduce to you … flower power headbands!

Don’t you think they’re so very pretty?

I had a terribly hard job getting photos, especially of little Tess and had to resort to a spot of bribery with a choccy biccy. Yum!

The headbands are quick knit and, just so you can make one too, I’ve written the pattern up for you!
And, it’s free! 

You can find the pattern here!

There are three sizes; small (toddler size), medium (4-9 years) and large (big girl and adult). I’ve designed a large and a small flower and, a super pretty leaf pattern!

Since the headbands only need a small amount of yarn they are a great way to use up the smaller bits from your stash. I used about 25g for the band and less for the flowers and leaf.

Ideally you’ll use a double knitting yarn (light worsted weight) on 4mm (US size 6) needles. But, the pattern is fairly forgiving and you can easily improvise with lighter or heavier yarn if you like.

So, off you hop, have a rummage around in your stash!
I wonder what goodies you’ll find?
