Knitted headband with flower. Free pattern.

A headband is a stylish, convenient and practical accessory. If your little girl doesn’t like wearing hats, such a headband can be a great alternative with onset of cold weather. It is very easy and fast to knit it. And just a little yarn is needed, so you can use a small reel, which is left from the previous works. This headband will not only keep the little ears warm, but will also become a wonderful adornment for a small princess.
