Chic Cable Headband

CO 18 sts using #8 (5mm) needles.

Row 1 (WS): K1, P2, K2, P8, K2, P2, K1.

Row 2 (RS): K3, P2, K8, P2, K3

Rows 3, 5, 7, 9, 11: As Row 1.

Row 4, 8, 10, 12: As Row 2.

Row 6: K3, P2, C4B, P2, K3.

Repeat Rows 1-12 until headband measures 20" (or whatever fits around your head comfortably - see below).

Bind off all stitches leaving a tail about 1 yard long.

Use tapestry needle to sew narrow edges together with tail.

Weave in all ends and block (for a lovely flat finish).

Hint: measure your head in the area you would wear a headband with a piece of yarn and then measure the yarn!

For new cablers: basically, every odd row is worked as Row 1, and every even row as Row 2, except for Row 6, where you CABLE!

These rows are repeated until the headband fits around your head comfortably.

Hint: To easily find your head circumference, measure your head with a piece of yarn in the area where you comfortably wear a headband and then measure the yarn for your personal circumference. :)
