This headband is very eye catching with a split cable pattern using both knit and purl stitches. It is knitted fat and seamed at the end with some shaping at each end. It matches the Double Dutch Cabled Cowl.
The cabled pattern is slightly more unusual than some other cables you may have knitted in the past, but it is very effective, but you will soon pick up the repeating pattern. This means that this is the ideal project for working on whilst you are watching the TV.
The headband takes approx 40g of aran weight yarn, depending upon which size you decide to make, so it is a great project for using up that left over ball.
It is also quite quick to knit up so would make a great last minute gift. Bigger sizes are achieved by repeating the rows at the beginning and end which ensures the cable is still in the middle.
Just the job for walking in the colder weather or for keeping your hair tidy when it is windy.
So grab your needles and some stitch holders and off you go!
You will be able to knit the headband from approximately 40g of Aran yarn for the largest size.
This easy, fast-knit headband is a sure winner for Christmas or gift knitting. I’ve designed the headband in three sizes, with a bit of negative ease, so they’ll fit a range of teen to adult head sizes.add to cart show cart

As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear.
