The Sonesta Hat Band is another pattern that I designed when I worked for Caron and it was on their blog (which is no longer), so I am now offering the pattern here for free. Sadly, the NaturallyCaron Spa yarn that the pattern was made in has been discontinued, but the pattern could be made in most any yarn you choose.
The nice thing about this design is that it also doubles as a necklace. And if you wanted, make it a longer and use it as a belt!
