Purl stitches of Honey-Butterscotch Ear Warmers

Repeat Rows 1-8 until headband measures slightly smaller than circumference of your head. Like this it will fit perfectly. Finish knitting with Row 1. Do not purl Row 2. Cut yarn leaving 10-15 cm (4-6 inches) tail. Using the method of horizontal invisible seam sew two ages of the headband together.

Headband is ready. I think that decorating our headband with small fur pom poms makes it look different.
