Ombre Wrap Headband – Free Crochet Pattern

Winter has officially hit us here in New York and boy is it cold! I am usually not a “hat person” but I did give it a shot. I tried wearing a hat but my head ends up sweaty. So, I decided to make myself a winter headband instead. I love it because it keeps my ears warm and lets my head breathe. I recently bought some Caron x Pantone yarn from Michaels and it comes in these mini skeins that are perfect for small projects like this one. Scroll down the FREE pattern for my Ombre Wrap Headband! Happy Crocheting!
