I began with some purple sparkle yarn left in my stash from a blanket I knitted long ago. The headband is a simple beginners project. Using lightweight yarn, cast on 7. Knit each row until desired length. Cast off and sew ends together. This part was not rocket science.
Then, I knitted the flower. I found a free pattern on L J Lowe’s Blog. This is a simple flower where each petal is made separately and then joined. With four basic stitches – knit, purl, slip one knit wise, and slip one purl wise – you too can complete this flower.
