Easy Versatile 10 Minute Headband

In case you are wondering why I am putting up a ton of posts in one day… well here’s the answer: A few months ago, I left my old server and switched back to WordPress.  Unfortunately, in doing so, I lost all of my posts from 2014 and 2015 – what a mess!!  The good thing is that I managed to archive the majority of them.  The bad news – I have to manually type them all up again!

But no fear, I am up for the challenge.  Here’s the latest and greatest:

The elastic band will help make it stretchy and it’s sure to fit most head sizes.  Here’s a tip: using cotton yarn is best because regular acrylic yarn will stretch out over time.  Cotton yarn will help prevent this.
