Feature Pattern of the Week - Hair Necessities

Hair Necessities by Becky Baker,
The Fibre Co. &Make DK, color Soft Love

We are loving knitting these fun accessories by designer Becky Baker featuring The Fibre Co. &Make DK, a soft blend of Peruvian Highland wool, alpaca & linen.

The pattern includes knitting instructions for a classic twist headband & scrunchie with 3 different stitch pattern choices for each! The headband may be knit in:

  • Garter & stockinette stitch stripes
  • Garter & slip stitch
  • Mock cable rib stitch

The scrunchie may be knit in:

  • Stockinette
  • Stockinette with purl rounds
  • Garter stitch

The pieces are approachable & fun for all levels. They make great little “just because” gifts.
