The yarn colors for this little heart headband just make me happy. Bright and sunny and Valentiney. But here’s the thing: I made it with stash yarn. I made hearts with two colors of yarn and alternated them in a pattern, and I know the pink one is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino in Neon Rose (which, I think, is discontinued). But the multi-colored? I have no idea. The good news is that you can pretty much make this at any gauge, so if you find a yarn you love, use whatever needles it recommends.
I made seven hearts and sewed them together side-by-side. Then I single-chain crocheted a long headband and sewed the hearts to the band. I tied the hairband at the nape of her neck and boom! Done!
This is such a fun little Valentine’s Day accessory. Or anyday accessory, really — who doesn’t love hearts? Everyone should love hearts. They symbolize…y’know…love and stuff.
You could use these hearts for anything — you could change up the yarn and needles and make one big heart for a hairband. Or make a necklace. A wreath like the one on the Knitting With Heart pattern page. Appliques for a shirt, or sewn onto a hat or scarf. Oh, the possibilities!
My ravelry notes are here, if you’d like to take a look.
