Hay Bale Hat and Headband

Well, about an hour after the Hay Bale Mitts released as the Craftsy November MKAL there were rumblings about a matching Hat or Headband (or both!)... so of course I thought that was the best idea ever!  I love a headband and my girl love's a hat... and we both needed new ones for the upcoming winter season!

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!
I know I say this about every photo shoot but this was one of my fav's... my girl and I ran outside on a snowy Thanksgiving Day for some fresh air and traded off being model and photographer..... obviously we have a little magic (and spice!)!

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!
