I decided on a DK weight yarn instead of the required worsted weight yarn. I used some remaining King Cole Baby Alpaca DK in this lovely teal green the yarn tension is different to the project so I casted on 15 stitches rather than 13 stitches for the main bow. I still only casted on 5 stitches for the center strip though, which works fine.
I chose King Cole’s Baby Alpaca due to using it before and knowing how soft it is. I didn’t want to use a yarn that might itch or irritate my head because I knew I’d never wear it again. However even if you don’t want the bow as a headband it’s quite easy enough to turn it into a beautiful brooch.
Go on get one made. xx
