Well, it’s been a while and I am a bit sad that my post is a knitting pattern and not some profound bit of wisdom. During the past year, I have, in my head, written 3 dozen blog posts that should have changed the world!
Finished Size: One size should fit most any woman’s head.
Yarn: The featured yarn is a beautiful blend (40% wool, 40% alpaca, 20% silk) called “Moonshine” from Juniper Moon Farm. It’s a 100g. One headband takes way less than a full skein. Any worsted weight yarn will work.
Needles: Size 8 16″ circular needle
- Cast on 80 stitches. Join and work in the round.
- Rows 1 & 2: Purl
- Row 3-5: Knit
- Rows 6 & 7: Purl
- Begin pattern rows:
- R1: K3, S1 (slip as if to purl) – repeat until end of row.
- R2: Knit
- Repeat pattern rows for 2 1/2 to 3 inches or desired width.
- Repeat rows 1-7.
- Bind off purl-wise and sew in ends.
Enjoy! This is a simple pattern that can be knit right up in an evening. Great gift idea for those non-hat-wearing friends.
