NEVER NOT KNITTING
Roses Are Red PDF
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
The sweet little rosebuds atop this headband make an ideal feminine accessory. This project works up very quickly and is a perfect way to use up sock yarn scraps. You can create your rosebuds in traditional shades of red as I have for this headband, or feel free to mix and match colors and rosebud amounts for a unique look.
