The called it “Not a Christmas” because Christmas is not here right now, and also because not everyone celebrates it. But nice crochet decorations will add a festive touch to every home.

Indie Design Gift Along 2020 Fave Headband Patterns – Knit Headbands
Knitted with fingering weight yarn, this would be an ideal slow and relaxing project rather than a quick gift, but what a wonderful way to use up speckled or highly patterned yarns in colours you love.
This pattern was designed to form functional and stylish. The textured cluster stitches provide depth and extra warmth, while the relatively simple construction make it beginner friendly. Sized toddler to adult.
