Ivy Headband

My new, warm, soft, stranded, braided, purpled, ivy-covered headband:

I used five different shades of sport weight alpaca yarn.  You could use merino, superwash wool, cashmere – whatever type of DK / sport weight yarn knits to the right gauge, has five colors that play nicely together and feels wonderful around your head. You’ll want about 40g out of a 50g ball of the main, background color – the dark purple in this case – since it’s also used for the solid-colored lining.  Aside from that one most-of-a-ball requirement, this is a great project for using up scraps.  The $5 PDF is available through my shop here.  Have fun!
