Gridiron Thermal Headband

Though the crafting hasn't stopped, the month of November has consisted of proportionally more homework than crafting. And the projects that I have worked on are either still unfinished, gifts that can not yet be exposed, or both. Lots of both.

One thing I can share, however, is the project I made for me! I found this great Gridiron Hat pattern on Ravelry and I thought it could translate well to a thermal headband. Since the yarn from my Blustery headband was scraggly and itchy, I decided a new, wider, warmer one was overdue and jumped on it! The pattern was fast and simple so I made it in just one sitting. I used leftover yarn (about a third of a skein of Loops and Threads Charisma in Dark Purple) from my Cables and Lace infinity scarf and Kinsey's beanie projects from early 2014. Gotta love scrap-buster projects!



The headband was perfect and kept my ears nice and toasty during my family trip to Pinnacles National Park last weekend! My sister is wearing the Braided Cable thermal headband I made her last year, the first thermal headband I ever made.


I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and November. Bring it on, December! 


Stay warm and keep crafting!

Happy Crafting!!
