Hello Kitty Sweatband - Free Knitting Pattern
I've been trying out different kinds of sweatband and headband patterns and came up with an idea to make a sweatband pattern out of Hello Kitty's kawaii little face. This is a really simple pattern that can be finished in a few hours. This little sweatband would make a perfect gift for any Hello Kitty fan in your life. Please do not use this pattern for profit!

Bind off and sew the wrong ends together to make the sweatband, weave the ends in
To make the bow:
Using pink yarn cast on 10
row 1: Purl the whole row
row 2: knit the whole row
rows 3-8: repeat rows 1 and 2
bind off, tie a piece of yarn in the center of the piece to make the bow shape, now wrap a few layers of yarn around the center until you are satisfied with the middle of the bow. Sew the bow to the side of the sweatband at an angle.
And there you have it! Your very own Hello Kitty sweatband! Pretty easy, huh!
