MAKE IT: Hot Headed Headband
The folks at Clover, WEBS-America’s Yarn Store, and I have teamed with Vogue Knitting Live to present a Make & Take on the Marketplace floor at the Minneapolis Convention Center this weekend. Show-goers will be able to sit down at a table, with free supplies (my help, if they want it) and the pattern for a warm, snuggly headband. In about 20 minutes, they’ll walk away with not only the experience of working with the new Takumi Size 17 circular needles and my colors of Valley Superwash Super Bulky, but also a finished object. It’s a win-win…win!
Alas, though not everyone will be able to make it Minnesota today, but that shouldn’t mean that they can’t knit-along with us from home! Below is the pattern for the same, Hot Headed Headband we’ll be making at the event. All you’ll need to do is snag some Takumis and yarn and get stitching! Knit one (or more!) up and post a photo online for us to see (tag @CloverUSA and @VickieHowell), that way we know you’re with us in knitting spirit. Enjoy! –Vickie
