my braided crown
by kelerabeus Follow

After seeing similar headbands/ ear warmers all around the internet I decided that I simply must make one for myself! I also decided that I don't need any pattern so I eyeballed the whole thing. And it's pretty easy actually! The back part is knitted in the round using double pointed needles. For the front part the total number of stitches is split in three and then each section is knitted separately. When they reached the desired length I braided them together and then rejoined all into one again. I used provisional cast on so that I could graft the ends of the band nicely, and that's about it. The headband is made with the same yarn as my slouchy hat. After I finished them both I still had some yarn leftover so I even made a cowl! What can I say, I really love this color :)

I'm super happy with the end result! It's a perfect thing for those days when it's too warm to wear a hat but still too cold to go out of the house without your ears covered. Plus, it's also perfect for camouflaging your roots when they're due for a touch up. What roots you may ask? Exactly :)
