Once I'd quickly knit up one of these "Poems Easy Headbands" (pattern in this book) for myself, I knew I needed to make one for my girls. Violet is known to find all things knitted "itchy" (the horror!), so I usually try a new yarn each time, then inevitably pass the offending item down to Margot. Of course, this one was deemed itchy, so here it is on Margot. .

This is a delicious thick and thin yarn, where one ply is soft, woolly, and muted, and the other is almost iridescently bright. It creates really interesting results and is fun to knit as each stitch is a different colour. Find the details on my Ravelry page.


  1. Darling! I just figured out awhile back one thing I used to love wearing that I don't anymore, and that's headbands.

    God Bless

  2. love the headband...I'll add it to the list of up and coming knitting projects for the year!!
