XOXO Headband - 1

I designed this headband for a class here in Cordova this winter. It knits up quickly, and is a great introduction to cables. One of my friends, Seawan, made a whole slew of them for Christmas gifts. You can get 2 headbands out of the Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran. In sample pictured (which my friend Becca knit), we used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece Serendipity Tweed. I think the colorway is called Pointsettia.  My students  and I practiced our cabling without a cable needle which I learned from Annie Modesitt many years ago at a knitting retreat in DC.

Don’t you think this would be a great thing to wear around Valentine’s day? Here in Cordova, there are many days when, if you’re out on a hike, you get too warm for a hat, but it’s still nice to keep the chill off your ears, so a headband makes the perfect accessory.

Just like my Lobes of Love crocheted earrings, the headband pattern will be free until Valentine’s Day. Happy knitting!

    Thanks for the free pattern! Seawan showed me one she made when she visited us in January, and I’m anxious to try cables. I’ve been crocheting for many years but am a relatively new knitter and have never done cables.

    Hi Maren, good luck with the pattern! There are some great youtube videos on
    cables that should help you if you need it. (You can just google cable
    without a cable needle). Thanks for the comment.
