Rainey has raindrop pattern and carries “rain” in its name. Rainey as an old English name also means “queen” and you get to wear your headband as a crown. It is a tribute to the local Dutch yarn made from sheep bred on the Texel island and naturally dyed here in The Netherlands.
The headband is worked in a round on double pointed needles (DNPs) from the middle of the back in both directions and sewn in the middle of the twist in front.
Final measurements of the blocked headband: 11.5 cm/4.5 in wide and 53 cm (20.75 in) in circumference unstretched.
The headband is designed in one size to fit an adult of 54-58 cm /21-23 in head circumference, but can be easily adjusted to fit any bigger or smaller size. Recommendations are provided.
