Simple Velvet Headband
So I gave into the velvet yarn trend and of course had to make a headband. This is my first in a series of velvet patterns. So if you are loving velvet yarns, don’t forget to Subscribe to my newsletter to hear about all my free pattern releases.
For this pattern I used Bernet Baby Velvet which is a size 4 yarn unlike most velvets which are size 5 bulky yarns. You can check out a selection of velvet yarns using this link here. The pattern was written in baby, child and adult sizes gauge is important in this project. Remember to make certain your gauge is correct, you should have a stretchy fabric. If not go up a hook size.
How long does it take?
The Adult size works up in just over a half hour, this makes it perfect for gifting and making while zoning out to a good Netflix Binge!
Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!
