This booklet contains 2 patterns - The Birds and The Bees - knit up both for a really sweet set.

This pattern comes in sizes to fit a baby, toddler, or child.

The bands are knit in garter stitch which makes for a nice stretchy fabric that stays in place.

They are super fast to knit up and a GREAT solution for leftover sock yarn.

I chose Louet Gems Fingering weight yarn for the headband, but really any sock weight yarn would do.
