I am soooo excited about this headband! I live in Toronto, ON and the amazing April behind OTH Crochet Nook runs this meetup called Yarn VS Everybody. A few times a year we get to meet up and talk fiber things and make amazing friends!
One of the best parts of this is that we all got a loot bag! Inside was a super yummy skein of Caron X Pantone in Faerie Cake. I knew that I wanted to make something special with this as the meetup was such an amazing experience. I left it out in my living room so that I could see it from almost anywhere in my condo, it’s a tiny one bedroom so that wasn’t too hard.
One of the comments that a friend made at the meetup was that it was hard to make something with just one skein as it’s only 127 yards. You could make a hat from it, but no long tails etc. I wanted to design something that could easily be made with only one skein and highlight the beautiful colour changes in this yarn.
One Saturday night while watching some sporting event, I was staring at my yarn and the idea of a wavy headband hit me. The next day I played around with a few different stitches, and since I love puff stitches they ended up in the final design!
