Fast Knitted Headband

A lovely and speedy knit – this headband can be completed in an evening for an experienced knitter or two for a beginner.

The headband can be made in any size for children or adults, if you are making for a babe under 3 yrs) please don’t add the button as this could prove to be a choking hazard.

The pattern below shows you how to start, the cabling pattern which repeats until the band is the length you need (my head is ridiculously small for example) and how to finish the whole headband with a decorative button.  The headband I created for myself also fits my daughter, please take a measurement for yourself to be sure of sizing.

I used…Stylecraft Aran Ombre in the shade Tribal, with a large black button to finish.

The headband is made from a repeating pattern of 4 x 4 blocks of alternating knit and purl and two mirrored strips of cable edged with a plain knitted band.

If you want to see a video tutorial for this pattern please let me know in the comments below.
