Spring is the time of year when I welcome and embrace the warmth. It’s wonderful to be outside and see all of the new life coming from the ground. I designed this headband to embody my love for wildflowers. I love how they grow on unattended ground and in random places. They’re full of color, texture and life.
The design for this headband started the my girls picked out this yarn from my local yarn store.
The problem was that it’s 60% wool, and while I loved the Spring colors I needed to make a headband that would be cool enough to wear in the Spring and Summer. From here, the wildflower headband was created.
