This double-thickness headband is knit in the round along the short dimension, adding rows along the long dimension, joined to the provisional cast-on at the back seam. The stockinette inner surface keeps your ears toasty and the beautiful cables of the outer surface, knit against a reverse stockinette background, are copied from Ireland’s great treasure: The Book of Kells.

Choose a ‘bouncy’ fiber, definitely not a ‘saggy’ one, and blocking is key!
