Somehow this pattern sat as a draft for over a year after testing…. I’m now bringing it to you in hopes that it brings joy to someone this winter!
This headband was inspired by a trip down to San Antonio’s River Walk! As someone who has always been inspired and influenced by the water, I felt right at home in a city that was built on the river’s edge. It reminded me of the way settlements would pop up along the edges of waterways, or on islands, and I wanted to capture that in this design.
The pattern has been tested by wonderful knitters and is easy to read and understand - a basic knowledge of cabling (or willingness to google/youtube it) and increasing/decreasing is necessary. It works up fast, and uses relatively little yarn. A 20” headband takes just 90-100 yds.
It is ideal for worsted weight / Medium 4 weight yarns. Required needle size (US 6) and approximate yardage (~100 yds) are specified in the patterns. The headband is about 3” wide (enough to cover your ears!), and can be made any length to fit any head from kids through adults!
Please feel free to message me if you have any questions regarding the pattern or if you need help with it!
