Emerald Isle Headband

I love emerald green, and was very happy when Pantone named it the color of 2013.  I’m a big fan!  I have green shirts in this shade, and I even have emerald green Chuck Taylors.  So, when Kollabora had another one of their Friday Challenges featuring this color, I grabbed my needles and ran with it.

Truthfully, I whipped this up in about an hour and a half.  Seriously!  US11 needles and worsted weight yarn make this project extra zippy.  Instant gratification, something knitters don’t get all the time.

It’s the Poems Easy Headband from my favorite book, 101 Designer on Skein Wonders.  Great book.  You need to get it.  As for the yarn?  I found it at Goodwill.
