Last of the birthday presents

My last present for P is another headband.  I'm really pleased by how this turned out.  Its essentially a tube - I cast on 6 stitches and joined in the round using magic loop, 3 on each needle.  Then I knitted it to the length I needed and joined the ends together.

I found a really nice tutorial for a knitted flower from Creating Laura, and attached it to the headband.  As you can see, I actually made the flower upside down, because it just didn't look as nice right way around.  The great thing about this pattern is that it uses so little yarn, and since I am constantly looking for some way to use up all the little scraps in my stash, this was perfect.  Its a really sweet and easy headband and I love how it came out.

Sorry for terrible photo quality - I was taking them at night so P didn't see anything.

Joining in with FO Friday and Creative Friday today


  1. I'm always looking for little patterns to use up left over bits of yarn... I'm adding this one!

  2. Cute. I'm thinking about crocheting up some little applique birds to attach to the afghan I'm working on to use up those little leftover bits of yarn :)
