Free Pattern: Simple Scrap Yarn Hair Band

Free pattern! Use your sock and fingering weight scraps to knit this fun, simple wrap-and-tie hair band.

It’s a slow process, but I am working on. Promise.

But, I hope you decide to stay a while and have some fun… Since you’re already here.Free scrap yarn hair band pattern (wrap and tie style) available at www.thisknittedlife.com It’s present time. Presents for you, that is.

I am not much of a clutter person. If I don’t use something, or it isn’t EXTRA special, it either goes to the thrift store or the recycling. I am also a re-gifter. Sorry, but it’s true. I have a small house, and so far, I have a small stash.

Amazing, I know.

I find that when I knit socks for women, I have a good chunk of yarn left over from a standard 400+ yard/meter skein. Depending on the color, I have used this leftover yarn to knit some toddler socks for Reed, which I then proceeded to immediately shrink in the dryer. (Who needs a pair of hand knit infant socks, by the way?).  I am fairly organized about managing my scraps. I try to bag them up with the ball band or similar yarns…some resemblance of a “system.”Free scrap yarn hair band pattern (wrap and tie style) available at www.thisknittedlife.com

System or not, these scraps of sock yarn were starting to weigh on me a bit.

So I made something.

I am very solution oriented.Free scrap yarn hair band pattern (wrap and tie style) available at www.thisknittedlife.com

Now, your feet can match your hair. That’s probably a fashion faux pas, but whatever. I like it.

I love you either way.Free scrap yarn hair band pattern (wrap and tie style) available at www.thisknittedlife.com

This simple hair band is wrap-and-tie style for a perfect fit for each lovely head. I recommend using a smaller needle with scrap sock or fingering weight yarn for a fun quickie project.

I hope you enjoy this pattern. As always, please be sure to post photos of your finished knit so I can see how they turned out. Yarn voyeurism (my favorite sport…).

Happy Knitting.

    Fun way to use up leftover yarn. I usually just give it away if I know I won’t be working with it again. BTW, were you the one who in past cut off a cuff or something to reknit it or make a sleeve longer before reknitting the cuff?

      Thanks. Did the link come through okay when you subscribed? Let me know if it didn’t. I don’t exactly trust Mailchimp to work.

    This is so pretty! I’m not a headband wearer but I think my daughter would love one!

    Your patterns are beautiful. One day I will tackle a lace shall hoping to give it to my granddaughter. I am not good at finishing large items you see. That headband is pretty so I would have NO problems there. Nice for gifting.
    Thanks!
