Generally a skein of yarn is 50 grams. Generally a hat uses about 1/2 to 2/3 of said skein (depending on what kind of hat you make and size). So you are bound to have some leftovers right?
One of my favorite ways to use up leftover yarn is to make knit headwraps. I whipped up these two cuties over the course of a couple evenings.
The basic outline is cast on stitches onto a 16″ circular or double pointed needles. Then use a 2×2 rib pattern for about 5 rows. Switch over to stockinette or garter stitch for the body. Keep knitting until you have your desired height and then switch back to the ribbing for 5 more rows. Bind off and you have yourself a headwrap!

Until next time!
