This is a pattern for a lined headband with sunflower and heart colourwork motifs knitted in the colours of the Ukrainian flag. I knitted it from stash, and it took about 60m of yellow, 60m of blue and 70m of the lining yarn all in 4-ply/fingering weight.
We have all been horrified at the events unfolding in Ukraine and I wanted to knit a headband as a gesture of support. I don't suppose me knitting a headband changes anything, but I am offering this pattern free on the understanding that if you knit it you will make a donation to a charity helping those affected by war in Ukraine, or indeed in any other war zone. Suitable charities in the UK would be DEC (disasters emergency committee) - or internationally, Medecins sans Frontieres or Unicef.
As well as the pattern for the headband I have included photo tutorials for a loopy two needle cast on, and for jacquard floats.
Any feedback on the pattern or the tutorials would be appreciated.
