This set of coordinating Christmas Headbands are a super fun and quick knit to make for your toddlers and kids this holiday! Choose from 3 designs and 4 sizes with this easy knitting pattern!
Ok, so I looooove a good knit headband. And this Christmas headbands knitting pattern is so much fun. I know when I was a kid, I actually preferred wearing an earwarmer / headband a lot because it didn’t smoosh my hair and honestly, I can completely remember that feeling of being super sweaty inside a snowsuit from running and playing.
A headband kept my ears warm but not TOO warm. This is definitely something my kids complain about too. Although as an adult, or maybe it’s as a parent, I feel like I MUST bundle them up the maximum amount but no matter how cold it is outside they do still complain about being hot and sweaty after running around for a while. So I think we should make headbands more popular, it’s the perfect middle ground.
And, I mean, it goes without saying that knit headbands are awesome because they’re super fast to make. I knit all three samples in the largest size in one day. Easy peasy! And the best part, no double pointed knitting needles! I KNOW you guys are going to like that.
Anway, it was so much fun to make a collection of coordinating headband knitting patterns for the holidays, they looks so cute together and would make really awesome gifts. I hope you guys like them too!
