The Gingerbread V Stitch Headband
 Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs
This is a super easy headband and ear warmer. 
It can be made to look like Gingerbread.

I striped this one to look like Peppermint.
How about make some in your favorite 
team or School colors.

The V  Stitch gives this headband  a really
pretty Texture and very stretchy.
Any Worsted Weight (4) yarn can be used.
