CABLE KNIT HEADBAND

Friday, September 25, 2015

I L O V E it when you send me things that you want me to make a tutorial of. Someone posted this pic on my Facebook page and a lot of other people wanted the same thing. 


So I knew I HAD to make a tutorial on it. I went on Ravelry and found a pattern for it really quickly! Yay I love it when that happens ;) It is a lot of fun to make because I really enjoy making cables, and I was very curious on how to make the outline part. I did make modifications, like the size needles and sl st and there was a problem in the pattern. I really REALLY like how it turned out! 

FREE pattern by Crafty Allie

Materials I used:

  • Worsted Weight yarn(Caron Simply Soft Heather Grey) 1 skein yarn - held double
  • US 9 straight needles
  • cable needle(or a twisty tie etc.)
  • tapestry needle
  • measuring tape
  • scissors

In her pattern, she has you slipping the LAST stitch purl-wise which is fine you can do that if that works for you. But I find it a LOT easier to slip the FIRST stitch knit-wise. The reason for this is it creates a smoother edge. Also Row 21, you are supposed to C4B if you want the cables to be the exact same. She has it to just purl 4. I will write out the revisions that I made so that it's easier to understand:

Provisional CO 18(you don't have to do this, you can do regular long tail cast on.)
knit every row for 5 inches. Don't forget to slip the first stitch.
