Knotted Makeup Headband

Yesterday, I was browsing some blogs through Bloglovin' - a fun site that helps you find new blogs to read, and I stumbled upon a post from Gwenstella at Because She Started Knitting for a Knitted Turban that I thought was absolutely beautiful.  So, you know me, I had to put my own spin on it!

I came up with this fun headband that you can wear as I had first intended (as a makeup headband) or just a regular headband.  It's super comfortable, and the cabling I just HAD to put on adds some texture.  I hope you like it, and if you try this pattern out, let me know by sending me a picture via my contact page!

Also, let Gwenstella know how beautiful her turban is by checking out her blog, as well!
