This quick-knit headband combines two cable patterns. It can be knit in about 3 hours. The suggested yarn is Knitpicks Shine DK, but this headband can be knit in any DK weight yarn.

To make a seamless closure, a provisional cast-on is used, and Kitchener stitch is used to graft the two ends. Not to fear though -- a photo tutorial is included in the pattern for both techniques.

The headband will fit a 21” circumference head.

Materials:
100 to 120 yards of Knitpicks Shine DK yarn in Lemon Yellow (or other DK yarn with good stitch definition)

Equipment:

  • US Size 6 (4 cm) knitting needles
  • Size G/6 (4 cm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Cable needle
