The Softest Knit Winter Headband

Yesterday morning we had our first big snow storm up here in Calgary, which is early even for Canadian standards!  But I made the most of our situation and got my sweet husband (who happened to be snowed in) to take some photos of me wearing my new braided headband – which I plan to wear all winter long to keep my ears toasty warm!

I kid you not, this headband is so soft and cozy that my daughter wears the one I made for her in the house!  I give credit to the yarn – Knitpicks Biggo bulky weight yarn which has to be the softest bulky weight yarn I have found to date!  The yarn is made from super wash merino and nylon, which makes it ideal for chunky winter accessories.


I have written out and posted the free pattern for this cozy headband below on this page.
