The winter is over. So it’s time to think about new spring accessories. This time it is simple and absolutely cute headband that can suit not only adult, but also small fashion lady. Previously I already created Sandy winter cable hat and Sandy winter cable cowl using the same type and color of the thread.
I do believe that at the end you will get adorable set that you can present to somebody or wear it yourself.
For the whole headband I used seed stitch what is alternation of knit and purl stitch.
Gauge: 17 stitches = 4 inches
k – knit
p – purl
selvage stitch – always slip the first stitch purlwise, work to the last stitch, purl the last stitch
<> 2 Double Pointed Knitting Needles 3.5 mm. You can use circular or straight needles as well;
<> Alpacana Lanoso 35% wool, 40% acrylic, 25% alpaca. Sandy color. (0.5 skein)
SO LET’S START KNITTING THE HEADBAND:
Cast on 15+2 (selvage) stitches. In total 17 stitches. Be careful at the end you should receive odd number of stitches.
Row 1: selvage stitch (slip the first stitch), *k1, p1, repeat from * to the last stitch, selvage st (purl).
Repeat Row 1 until the piece measure the size of your or baby’s head.
Cast off all stitches and bind of leaving the long tail. I have done picture in the way I like to bind off stitches. Please check them below:
Sew together two ends of the headband. Do not cut yarn, instead pull the yarn to receive wrinkled look.
For the middle part of the headband cast 7 stitches and repeat the same seed stitch pattern. I have decided to use selvage stitches while I wanted to get nice-looking edges of the headband
Combine middle part of the headband over the main part and sew it from the backside. On the picture you can see how it looks from the backside.
