I love headbands and knit cables. What can be better than both of them combined?!
Learning to knit cables was on my to do list for a while. But I am fussy with headbands. I don’t wear them with my hair down and I like them to be wide. So when I found this headband I immediately fell in love.
I followed this tutorial as a guide.
I used the same weight category yarn, #5 bulky. Both of headbands are made with Lion’s Pride Woolspun yarn in colors Linen and Taupe. I have to admit that taupe is my favorite. Beautiful neutral to go with anything.
I couldn’t find size 11 needles so I just used my Clover bamboo circular needle in size 10 instead. Do you always follow every single instruction?? I didn’t think so. Haha
I don’t like anything that is too tight on my head, so I knitted mine to 18″ and seamed with mattress stitch.
I can definitely see myself making more in the future.
Let me know if you made one of these and how do you like it?
Have a great day,
