{FREE} CHUMMY : Chevron Headband Knitting Pattern

FREE Chummy Chevron Headband Knitting Pattern. Twice the thickness, coziness & warmth!

If you’ve been following along my knit stitch series, you may have lots of swatches laying around. I’ve had the Elongated Chevron Knit Stitch swatch on my desk for months trying to decide what to do with it. I love this stitch! The yarn is absolutely beautiful, but I only bought one skein. :(

I finally figured out what I’m going to do with it… a headband {If you’ve been around for awhile, this should not come as a surprise}. It’s a quick knit, so it might make a good last minute Christmas gift… for yourself! :)

I’ve worn this several times and it’s my new favorite.

It’s extra warm and cozy!
