American Flag Headband

You can make this headband 
with Sport Weight
 yarn for a light weight Headband,
 or You can use Worsted Weight yarn
 for thicker Ear Warmers,

The Pattern is written for an adult head, 
but it is easily adjusted for smaller heads.
you get a nice stretchy edge, that fits great!
This fun striped headband 
would also be great for sport team colors, 
school colors and even 
would be awesome in neon colors.
Oh, And do not forget the reflective yarns!
