Grignasco Camel Hair Headband

Winter is coming!

I haven’t lived in these climates since 1994 when my husband and I packed up the kids and moved south!  BRRR! This little headband or neckwarmer is a fun little 1-2 hour project made with Grignasco’s Camel Hair.  You can actually make 2 from the 2 balls of yarn-obviously they are mirror images of colorway, but hey! You get 2 out of it.

I also see this as a nice and easy way to test your skills on Fair Isle or 2 color knitting.  You only have 13 rows to deal with changing colors, and you are working in the round. No need to struggle with your tension expertise on that purl row!

Have fun with picking color combos, and get some holiday gifts done in the meantime.

Enjoy!  Cia
