I found a winter headband at Anthropologie the other day that was cute, but waaaay too expensive to purchase when you know how to knit. So I'm going to try to make one.
I went on Ravelry to find a pattern for a flower. I've never made one before. There are SO MANY options. It's a little hard to handle that many choices. So I decided I would try two different ones and go from there.
My first attempt was at a free pattern from Lion Brand yarn, a simple knit rose.
Here's what it's supposed to look like:
Cute and small, right?
Well, mine didn't turn out anything like that. Not sure if I didn't use the right needles for my yarn or what, but it turned out.....
Kind of looking like a va-jay-jay.
So, I tried a different pattern. This time, I used a pattern posted by a fellow Raveler.
This gal turned out true to the pattern:
Now that I've got the flowers, I just have to make the headband to attach them to. I'm thinking about using the yarn I harvested from the sweater.
Also thinking about trying to knit this other braided headwrap at Anthropologie. Looks super simple, and I actually have a pattern for a braided scarf that I could go off of. Not that you really need a pattern for something this simple. Or that you could ever wear a braided scarf and a braided headwrap at the same time. Too matchy-matchy.
I'll keep you posted with updates. Pun intended.
