This project, like so many of mine, was something I made over a year ago, Feb 2012. During one of our gatherings on a Wed. night at my house I decided I was going to try making something I had seen on Pinterest. I had some yarn left over from a previous project so I only had to buy some ribbon for the ends. The tutorial I followed is called "The knotted headband." I like to think of it as a Celtic knot.
The tutorial is great, it was very easy to follow, had clear instructions and pictures, and was true to the final product. Best of all this was a quick project, I would say no longer than 1 hour to complete the entire thing. You can find the tutorial here: http://youseriouslymadethat.blogspot.com/2011/02/knotted-headband.html
One week I decided to wear my knotted headband to dance class. Everyone loved it, I got many compliments and when I told everyone I made it they seemed surprised. A few people asked me to make headbands for them as well and I happily said yes.
The light pink headband was the first one I made. I was able to make the second one, a dance class request, with the same spool of ribbon as my original.
This is a progress picture of another one I'm working on. I will have to go pick out another spool of ribbon to finish it.
