I knit 3 hats and 5 headbands while I perfected the yarn choice and pattern shaping (see more about that here).... and ended up with versions I love and I hope you do too!
|Hay Bale Hat knit with Manos Maxima in Cherrywood with a handmade pom-pom|
|Hay Bale Headband knit with Manos Maxima in Sea Urchin|
|Hay Bale Hat knit with Knitted Witt Aran in Prussian Blue and a coveted fake fur pom-pom!|
The headband takes around 25 grams of worsted weight yarn, perfect stash busting, gift knitting, right? I've worn mine almost everyday since it came off the needles.
You can see more photos, read about the pattern, and purchase it on Ravelry. A big thankyou to my speedy testers, Lorrie, Jennifer and Melanie!!! Y'all were super helpful!
