Hilda Vintage-inspired Headwrap
Hilda is a simple multi-textured head wrap, made in one piece. It can be worn in different ways by altering the bow position (to the front, side or at the back) and doubles as a headband and ear warmer.
The inspiration for this piece came from my love of wearing vintage scarves as headwear, combined with a smidge of Minnie Mouse. I like to think of it as a functional piece of kitch.
One size should fit most adults and teens but the central moss stitch section can be reduced or increased for smaller or larger heads very easily. I used just under 30g of (mottled) Aran and 21g of (red) light worsted for the samples both of which were knitted to the same pattern/size and fit my head which measures 56 cm or 22” around the relevant place.
The small version is exactly the same on sections A and C but section B is increased to 10 stitches and less repeats are worked.
I hope you will enjoy knitting your own Hilda and if you have any comments or questions, please let me know.
