I love warm headbands.
I love hats too, but headbands are uniquely suited for Fall! I mean, they…
- Keep your ears nice and toasty,…
- Prevent over-heating by allowing excess body heat to vent,…
- Don’t interfere with “up” hair styles,…
- And they’re just plain fun! (Not to mention stylish!)
If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen this photo of a hat pattern I’m working on called “Desert Star.”
I’ve been toying with idea of creating a Desert Star Collection, and could not get the thought of a Desert Star headband out of my brain!
So I made two versions, and I need your help to decide which one to write and publish!
Headband Number 1: Narrow(er) Headband
So sorry about the rolling edges in these two photos, I hadn’t yet blocked this one!
This style is simple and traditional, no shaping, just a colorwork headband with ribbing on both edges. It provides both plenty of ear coverage and top ventilation!
Headband Number 2: Wide(r) Headband
This style is a hybrid hat/headband cross, also known as the “Mom-Bun-Beanie.” It has minimal crown shaping, and is a little wider, providing a bit more ear/head coverage and a bit less top ventilation while not interfering with your up-do!
Having made and worn both, I have to admit that each is very likable – for knitting and wearing!
But… I think that I personally prefer the wider headband because I find that I like a bit more head coverage.
Which headband would you rather knit/wear? Don’t worry, there’s no judgement here! I’m just curious to know what you all think! 😊
