Nurmael is a headband decorated with a celtic-cable-pattern going around the head.
The headband is knitted transversal. Therefore it can be easily adjusted to larger head circumferences.

A small and easy project, if you knitted once a cable pattern and you should be able to read the stitching glossary.

Ideal as a quickly knitted gift. Knitted in a mixture of fine merino wool and angora it will be the perfect headband for cold days, also in winter.

The pattern is a PDF with 5 pages in english and german.
