Monica Russel uses her fantastic design skills to create a wide range of gorgeous headbands. The huge variety in this book means that there is something that will appeal to everyone: some headbands are in a single colour, others in a multitude of colours, some are narrow while others are wide; some have bow embellishments, while other have buttons or flowers - and some use just one stitch, while others use a range of stitches to create beautiful designs. There are chunky designs to keep you warm in winter, and lighter headbands ideal for wearing in spring. These are quick and easy projects for all knitting abilities, which do not use huge amounts of yarn, and will make gifts for family and friends that are both practical and attractive.
