Brioche Twist Headband

free / gratis

A headband is such an underrated accessory: it’s less bulky than a hat but keeps your ears toasty warm, it keeps your hair from flying around in the wind but doesn’t give you hat hair and it fits into every bag.

This quick and easy reversible headband features bold stripes on one side and a two-color texture on the other – thanks to the stockinette brioche pattern.

The cabled twist in the center adds some interest and makes sure the wide headband doesn’t cover your forehead.

The headband comes in 3 different widths and 4 circumferences, but please feel free to mix and match sizes to customize your headband.
