One of my Minnesota friends sent me an image of her headband and said that it was the best headband she'd ever bought and that I should make them. They're about 26" long, 2" wide at the forehead, 3" at the ears and 2.5" at the nape. She was right! They don't mess up your hair and they keep your ears warm and they easily roll up for storage. The 3" Velcro strips at the nape make it adaptable to all size noggins!
