New Knit Pattern: Amaranth Headband

This latest pattern was inspired by a last minute improvised project and quick knit for a Queen’s Day headband (Koninginnedag in the Netherlands). I didn’t have anything orange to wear and so I quickly picked out some orange yarn and knit this up.

The Amaranth Headband, in its published form, is a more refined version that fits most head sizes, and is long enough to be tied at the ends to secure it.

Finished Measurements
(If using requisite yarn and following sample)
Width at center is 3”/ 7.5cm
Length from end to end after blocking is 25” / 63.5cm.
When worn, the headband can stretch an additional 4” / 10cm.

Rosy Green Wool, Cheeky Merino Joy (100% Organic Superwash Merino), 100g, 350 yd / 320 m
15 to 20g, in color #50 Ruby

1 pair of size US 4/ 3.5mm knitting needles (or size to obtain gauge)
