Anthropologie Inspired - Free Knit/Crochet Pattern

My Blog Addiction began on a Monday about a year ago when I was looking for DIY "Bitty Baby" Patterns. I found a diaper pattern at "Skip To My Lou" and I have been hooked ever since.
I started my blog on a Monday so...It is only fitting that my 2nd Blog Post include a free pattern to share at

 I recreated  the look of the  Anthropologie Store "Wintermallows Headband" with my own knitting design. The pattern is suitable for Beginners and can be finished in an evening.
