Headbands come Neck Warmers

Hermione chose a rather electrifying green yarn while out on a shopping excursion with Nana the other day. Apparently I'm to transform it into a knitted headband. Knowing what a novice knitter I am, I can only hope she's pitched her expectations accordingly.

Anyway, browsing through Pinterest for inspiration, as one does, I came across this really functional and versatile garment which I'm hopeful Nana may knit for me. Not as yet come across anything I think I could actually knit. Ho hum, I'll keep on looking for patterns for those of limited abilities.

Are you on Ravelry? You can filter patterns by level of difficulty (among many other criteria) x

No, I'm not on there, but perhaps I ought to be :-) Thank you. xx

I cold be missing something here, but could you knit a short thin scarf type thing to make into a headband? Maybe nana could crochet some flowers or hearts to embellish it?

Yes, I think that's what I need to do Amanda. I started tonight but I was using thin needles and ended up pulling it out because it's bobby sort of wool and it wasn't knitting up well on very thin needles.
