This Adventures in Knitting pattern provides a map to learn a new technique while making your project! Each pattern provides the pattern instructions, charts, technique overview, technique “how-to,” tutorials, and “keys for success.” Print out the pattern double-sided and fold into thirds for optimal use.

This reversible cable headband can be worn on either side! Most cable patterns are only seen from one side, as there is a definite right side to the fabric. Learn how to make three different reversible cable patterns while making this cute headband!
