Rainbow Gradation Headband

Lion Brand® Bonbons®


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

Headband is wrapped with yarn in 15 sections, each about 1 in. (2.5 cm)

Apply a small amount of glue to a 1 in. (2.5 cm) area at one end of Headband and wrap with one strand of emerald green yarn for about 1 in. (2.5 cm). Trim beginning end of yarn, add a tiny additional bit of glue to secure the beginning end of yarn, and allow to dry.
As you continue to wrap the Headband, you can glue yarn ends in place or you can hide the yarn ends by wrapping over them. Just do whichever is easier for you!
Apply glue to the next 1 in. (2.5 cm) section of Headband. Wrap this section with the strand of emerald green AND a strand of pea green.

Continue applying glue and wrapping 1 in. (2.5 cm) sections of the Headband, in the following color sequence or using the colors as desired:
One strand of pea green
One strand each pea green and light blue
One strand light blue
One strand each light blue and dark blue
One strand dark blue
One strand each dark blue and purple
One strand purple
One strand each purple and hot pink
One strand hot pink
One strand each hot pink and red
One strand red
One strand each red and peach

Allow to dry.

Rainbow Gradation Headband Reviewed by Wendy Hampton on 2013-04-04 *****
What a hoot this is! Easy, colorful, and more comfortable to wear than a plain headband that always gives me a headache.

A fun thing to do with kids also!
