The Annalee Headband

IMG_1334

Toward the end of my time working for a book publisher, I had trained my fully capable replacement and had some free time, so I made this headband over and over. The head editor at the publisher was Annalee, a woman of the world who had advice for everyone and regularly brought her sweet doggy in for the day. Like Annalee, this headband is beautiful, brunette, and full of twists and turns.

This headband is my first original pattern! Headbands are great for when you need to use up yarn, plus you can put some beautiful detail in there without it getting too monotonous for the knitter, because you’re done making it so quickly.

Making this pattern was a process of balancing the cable on both sides, making it stand out and be the feature of the project, and also making sure that the edges looked nice and no curling around. So many things to think about (and write down) when it’s coming from your own head!
