During winter there are days when I just don’t feel like wearing a hat. Maybe I have a business meeting later that day and I don’t want hat hair. Or maybe I don’t have one that goes with my outfit.
Whatever the reason, I need something to keep me warm other than my winter hats. That’s why I love a good crochet headband that keeps me cozy but still cute.
The Twist Mixed Cluster Crochet Headband is a beautiful headband that will keep my ears warm and my hair looking good.
It’s got a beautiful little twist in the front of the headband and uses decorative crochet stitches to create a unique design. It alternates rows of the cluster stitch and single crochets to create what looks like a detailed ribbed design.
And it’s made in Cascade 220 Superwash Merino which is 100% wool and 100% machine washable. It’s so easy to take care of this headband thanks to the yarn. And it’s really lightweight and soft so it won’t cause any itching or irritation to your forehead.
It’s a fast crochet project that looks really detailed and the yarn emphasizes the stitchwork.
