Measure your head with a measuring tape from the base of the skull up around the top of the head. Add 4 inches.


Cut a rectangle that is the length of the measurement by 4 inches tall.


If your scraps of knit fabric are small, you can cut two rectangles with an extra 1 inch added for seam allowance.


If you use a t-shirt or a dress, it is okay to cut through a seam. Just make sure the seam is in the middle so that it’ll be on the back of the headband.
