RASPBERRY is a light headband made of sock yarn. I love to wear it when I go for a run in the colder season or just to keep my hair out of the way. It can be washed and the yarn does not felt.
Although the given instructions are for an adult size headband, they can be altered very easily so that RASPBERRY fits any head. Since it is worked flat, only the length needs to be adjusted.
