The sweet little rosebuds atop this headband make an ideal feminine accessory. This project works up very quickly and is a perfect way to use up sock yarn scraps. You can create your rosebuds in traditional shades of red as I have for this headband, or feel free to mix and match colors and rosebud amounts for a unique look.
This sweet violet headband is a perfect little springtime accessory. It's an ideal, quick-to-knit gift for all the little girls in your life. A weekend's worth of free time and sock yarn scraps are all it takes to brighten up your little one's face.
