If you haven't spotted it on Ravelry yet, I'd like to take a quick minute and introduce you to my newest pattern design--the Alex Headband!
This super-quick little accessory is easy, mindless knitting for fall road trips, bonfire, or BFF chat sessions shared over a pumpkin latte! Because the pattern instructions allow for a custom-knit fit, you can easily substitute your own favorite yarn--maybe even in a super-bulky yarn & big needles for oversized chic! However, I picked one of my long-time favorites, Quince & Co's Chickadee yarn. One skein makes 2-4 headbands depending on sizing, and the colors are just darling!
The pattern includes photos & instructions for 5 different braid/twist variations, so you'll definitely want to make more than one of these sweet accessories!
This design is heavily inspired by all the ah-mazing headbands (and accompanying hairstyles!) that have been popping up on the runway and subsequently everywhere else, like this one from Oscar De La Renta:
Feeling a little girly? Knit Alex in the Petal colorway and add a sparkly pin! Pair it with a white blazer, silky cami, and navy skinny jeans for date night glam.
I also loved seeing all these fun hairstyles for headbands, including a look by one of my top style inspirations, Alexa Chung--hence the pattern name!
You can find the pattern (and more details) on Ravelry here! DovieCaba is the lucky winner of a free copy of the pattern--send me an e-mail or Ravelry message to claim your prize--and everyone else can take 20% off from now until October 1st by entering the code "style5" at check-out! ♥

P.S. Pattern photos were shot by the lovely Ali Mercer of boomergarcowski.com. If you liked them, you should definitely take a little peek at her website & give her some kudos--she was awesome to work with and didn't mind having a complete stranger dictate to her about knitting photos! xoxo
