VALIANT

HEADBAND

Valiant = possessing courage or determination.

Let the beautiful geometric patterns in this design inspire those bold feelings of courage and determination! Knit in the round, this traditional ear warmer headband features ribbed edges flanking a bold color work motif. The stranded color work creates a super cozy double-layered fabric via the floats that are carried along the inside of the piece. Worked in a 100% alpaca yarn, you’ve got the ultimate in softness and warmth, plus a little breathing room so you don’t overheat! Pair with Gallant fingerless mitts for a cozy matching set!
