Midsummer Headband

Midsummer Headband

The Midsummer Headband is made using a four stitch, four-row repeat stitch pattern with a garter stitch band around all four edges. Each side is different, yet similar, making this a perfectly reversible project — just remember to use a stitch marker so you know which side you’re working on!
