I decided to make a cozy headband now that things are getting a bit chilly. The yarn is left over from my Leela armband.

This is a flawed pattern, and like everyone else, I decided to alter it. Some people also altered the cable to make it a true braided cable, but I decided I liked it all meandering. It’s whimsical. Also, I didn’t feel like picking up the stitches at the end and knitting around, so I made slip stitch edges. ALSO also, the button hole was way to big for a 1 inch button, so I got a 1 1/4 inch button and that worked nicely.

  1. The headband looks great and it really suits you!

  2. Love this! Been looking around for a lot of ear warmer/headband type things exactly this style!

  3. chunky yarn is so much fun :D great item!

  4. It’s very pretty and cosy! Looks like you did a great job with the mods.

  5. Love the headband on you! Please tell me you didn’t say whimsical. I have to go wash my ears out now.

  6. So your modifications make the cable as originally pictured? It says Row 8: sl 1, 4, p4, k4 and in Row 10: sl 1, 4, p4, k4. There is just a 4 and no K or P. Do you mean sl 1, K4, p4 K4?
    Thanks for the help.
