I have been looking into headcoverings lately. It seems beliefs vary between what a headcovering should be. I think my husband might be okay with me wearing a headband as a headcovering, but I don't think he would accept me covering my entire head. These are very pretty. Do you believe headbands as coverings are okay?

Heather said...

Yeah, I really need to do some more research into whether the head needs to be completely covered. I do think it is a great compromise if it's what your husband is comfortable with. And it's a great way to "break into" headcovering. I'm kind of in the same situation. My husband doesn't like anything that looks Mennonite/Amish or like a nun or bride. lol This is a way I can have something on my head and still feel stylish and feminine.

Heather, I cannot get all the links to work, only one pattern. Is anyone else having this type of trouble?
