30g of Fio Naturalmente Colorido (Da Fazenda, 100% wool, 100g, 91m, cor Moura)
A pair of knitting needles 5,5mm
Crochet needles (for finishing).
10cm x 43cm
k = knit
p = purl
kf&b = knit front and back (only when occurs a double YO)
ssk = slip, slip, knit
k2tog = knit 2 together
k2tog+1 = knit 2 together; don’t drop the st; then knit again the first st. (this is not a decrease because you end with 2sts in your needles)
Yo = yarn over
* The headband is a little shorter than head circunference. The whole circle is completed with the buttonholes, made in crochet chain. If you prefer convencional buttonholes, make the headband longer.
* I recomend block you headband when you finish.
