Maddie Headband

Maddie Headband


All of my patterns are designed with a dear friend in mind, and this one belongs to the amazing Maddie! The Maddie headband is a fun, cozy, bring-everywhere accessory perfect for my sunshiney, reliable, & stupidly lovable best friend! Knit in the round with ribbing, simple lace and staghorn cables make this a fun, quick knit and a great way to use up fingering weight yarn!

This pattern is also available for purchase via Ravelry and Etsy. Handknit items can also be purchased here.
