Knitted Headband For Youth - Free Pattern

I purchased a software for writing patterns. Yeey.

What I like about it is that it creates images of my design and key abbreviations. However, I cannot save it as pdf - the software has some glitch. So here is my first design with this software - a headband. First I designed the stitches and then I knitted the headband. Enjoy the free pattern.

Also, this item is for grabs as my "Give-a-Way" for this month. See rules on THIS PAGE.
