Hats are great, but when your hair spends a lot of time in a ponytail, you need Your Morning Headband for that cold morning commute. The simple modern crochet design means it’s truly a classic piece that can be worn day after day. It’s lightly textured and naturally stretchy, so it won’t slide around, and the front twist adds style while keeping the yarn off your forehead.

Choose a neutral color for yours, and it’ll go with any outfit or coat. The pattern is a quick make, and a great choice for any beginner or experienced crafter.

Scroll down for the free version but I recommend you purchase the ad-free PDF Pattern to get all the instructions and pictures in a nice PDF you can print and take notes on without relying on your phone or an internet connection, I’ve got you covered!
