I found a tutorial on Pinterest for this Celtic Knot Headband, and decided to give it a shot! I made my own tutorial, so that you all can give it a try too. It took less than 10 minutes, and there is no sewing. My kind of project!
Find some jersey stretch material. Old t-shirts work really well. I used an old jersey sheet.
Cut 1-inch strips as long as you need to fit around your head with plenty extra to tie it. If you want to make an infant headband, only use two strips. If you want a thicker headband, cut four to six strips.
Stretch the strips tightly.
The jagged edges will curl up.
Ok, ready to start knotting. I doubled up two strips for added bulk. This becomes Strip #1. Lay strip #1 as shown below, making sure the RIGHT side of the strip is on top.
Lay Strip #2 on top of Strip #1 as shown.
Pull the RIGHT tail of Strip #1 OVER Strip #2
Pull the LEFT tail of Strip #2 UNDER the loop of Strip #1
Ok, this is the trickiest part. Pull the RIGHT tail of Strip #2 OVER the loop of Strip #1, and UNDER the tail of Strip #2.
This is how it will look.
Now grab all the tails, and slowly pull to tighten the knot.
Now, you can stop there, but if you want a bigger knot, just throw in a regular knot on each end to enlarge the knotted area.
Then, find an adorable kid like this one, and tie it on!
Or, for a little boho flare, tie it on yourself!
