Hey knitters! Long story short, if you have arrived here in search of this fabulous free pattern, all you have to do is subscribe to my blog. It’s easy. Check out the box in the upper right hand corner of the side bar.
I promise to never share your email, and I won’t clutter your inbox. In addition to receiving regular blog posts in your inbox, I have lots of plans for free and discounted patterns to offer subscribers…plus some knitting resources I am developing. 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. 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.”
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.
Now, your feet can match your hair. That’s probably a fashion faux pas, but whatever. I like it.
This pattern is free to all of my subscribers*. If you are already a subscriber***, check your inbox for an message sent this past Wednesday to retrieve your goods. And, if you subscribe from this day forward, your confirmation email from Mail Chimp should include a link to the pattern as well. This offer does not expire (into the foreseeable future). If you have stumbled onto this post months from now, you can still subscribe and receive this pattern for free. Just enter your email into the box in the upper right hand corner of this page. A link to the pattern will be included in your auto-email confirmation.
If you would rather not subscribe (don’t worry, I won’t take offense…Inbox clutter overwhelms me too…), you can still purchase this pattern on Ravelry for a mere $3.00 here. But I would rather give it to you for free.
I love you either way.
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…).
