These headbands are very easy to make I noticed that when I followed this pattern that it always tends to be on the bigger size so when you get to the part where they ask you to knit to 11", substitute that to 10" instead, its has a nicer fit than the given instructions.
The decal can be added according to whatever you wish. You can sew on fake pearls/beads in my case I love needle felting so I needle felt this stuff.
