{FREE} CAMPFIRE : Classic Headband Knitting Pattern

Grab the FREE Classic Headband Knitting Pattern! I love simple classic styles that never go out of style. This headband has twice the thickness {and warmth} and it doesn’t curl on the edges.

Having friends and family over can feel overwhelming, at least to me. Knitting helps me relax and stay present. I wanted something simple to knit. Something to keep my hands busy, but I could still carry on a conversation… or at least be listening to one or five.

May you find peace in the midst of your chaos. :)
