Featuring Bernat Blanket O'Go - or Any Blanket!
To make the Luxe Loops Headband, I used some Bernat Blanket O'Go - I love how tangle-free it is, and I might just be using the rest of it on my next pattern! However, this is a great pattern to make using any leftover bits of Blanket you have - even match a larger gift for a fun gift set!
A Trendy Stash Buster
The Luxe Loops Headband uses only 40 yards of yarn and the kind of simple elastic hairband you likely already have laying around the house. And it's got the look that's trending right now, making it perfect for gift giving!
Padded headbands, aka hatbands, are basically big "puffy" headbands, often made with luxurious materials. And the Luxe Loops Headband is my crocheted contribution!
The yarn and stitching do the work - no need for actual padding, and only the tiniest bit of stitching at the very end. A gorgeous textured look, made in minutes to match every outfit!
