Pink Rose Fisherman’s Rib Headband

Mock Fishermans Rib Headband

My second project in January will be a simple Fisherman’s Rib Headband in pink color. I’ve probably seen hundreds different headbands, but this one picked my interest recently. I guess that’s the beauty of knitting as a hobby – each item has its unique features, structure, yarn, needles used, and so on; and you can always add your own personal touch to it. Are you excited? I definitely am, then let’s start!

<> Knitting Needles 6 mm (US10/UK 4);

<>Alize Lanagold Plus 51% wool, 49% acrylic, Pink color: 100 grams -140 m per skein In total<0.5 skein.

sel s – selvage stitch: always slip the first stitch purlwise, work to the last stitch, purl the last stitch

k1b – knit 1 stitch below

Note for knitters:

One size that fits most.

Length folded in half: 20 cm (7.8”).

Fisherman’s rib knit headband pattern:

Cast on an even number of stitches. In my case it is 16. Knit back and forth on needles.

Row 1: sel s, [k1, p1] repeat till the end on row, sel s.

Row 2: sel s, [k1b (k1 in the knit stitch below), p1] repeat till the end of the row, sel s.

Repeat Row 2 until headband reaches desired length.

If you still have problems with the pattern, follow my Instagram and watch little tutorial of how to knit Fisherman’s Rib stitch.

Using the method of horizontal invisible seam sew together the ends of the headband. Then pull the yarn to get some wrinkles.

For the ring part of knitted ear warmer cast on 7 stitches.

Row 1: sel s, knit all other stitches, sel s.

Row 2: sel s, purl all other stitches, sel s.

Repeat Row 1 and 2 for 30-32 rows. Place the ring across the wrinkled part of the headband to cover the seam part. Sew two parts together using again horizontal invisible seam method. To secure the ring you can sew its back part to the headband. Cut the yarn and weave in all ends.

I’m confused about the front piece in the middle, is it knit separate or do you use the tail piece to cast on the 7 stitches and then knit to the length, cast off and sew together ? thanks !! Confused!!

Hi. You cast on separately 7 sts and after you knit 32 rows, then sew 2 ends together around the headband.
