Note about yarn/gauge: Because this headband is knit as a long strip, you can use a thinner or thicker weight of yarn and follow the pattern. If you use a thinner weight, your headband will not be as wide and if you use a thicker weight your headband will be wider. Regardless of yarn weight/gauge, you should follow all the length instructions to get the proper circumference.
