I love the texture of the clusters in this simple headband crochet pattern, and think it is lovely made of our Astral yarn, which has just such a beautiful sheen to it.
The pattern is a FREE one, that I found on a blog called Flower Girl Cottage and will share with you here.

The Astral yarn used for this headband is a heavenly blend of 30% Alpaca, 20% Wool, and 50% Tencel with incredible luster. The DK-weight yarn combines Alpaca and Merino wool to create body and softness, while the Tencel produces a lovely drape as well as adding durability and strength. There are currently 15 rich shades of Astral. The one used for this headband is called Libra.
