Ready to move beyond knit and purl? Try this simple introduction to cable knitting – and end up with a comfy headband!

Options are given for three different cable patterns, two edges (garter and seed), and three finishing techniques. The cables are provided in both written and charted form - great for beginners to learn how to use charts.

Pattern uses only ~28g of yarn - You can easily make all three versions from one skein of Katia Merino Aran. You’ll need a cable needle in addition to your knitting needles.
