New Pattern: Wreckhouse Headband

pinterest.png

Wreckhouse is an area of Newfoundland named for its extreme winds. While the Newfoundland Railway was still in operation, the winds would occasionally blow railway cars off the tracks, and to this day transport trucks are still blown off the road from time to time.

The Wreckhouse headband is knit in thick, dense, Honeycomb Brioche Stitch, making it a stylish but also truly functional winter accessory. The honeycomb pockets trap warm air, making this headband an effective barrier against the briskest of winter winds.
