I'm so excited about this pattern. My daughter is one of the biggest fans of HK whatever she can own of HK she'll try to get it, and if my husband and I don't get it, she has two aunts that as my daughter are HK lovers. When I started crocheting again, the first thing I made was the HK beanie. Now that the days are getting warmer here in Germany, I decide to make her a headband. I saw it in my head and had to draw it before I forget it. After drawing I started crocheting and it only took me an hour to make it and I loved the way it turned out. When my daughter saw it she was so excited and ever since she hasn't put it down.The other good thing about this pattern is that its versitile and you can make other things too. I have so many ideas now for headbands that I want to crochet now but I'm busy with other things. Hopefully in a month or so I can get it done and I will post it here.
