THE PERFECT FIRST KNITTING PROJECT - KNOTTED HEADBAND

Thursday, December 19, 2019

After I made the chunky knotted headwrap, I instantly wanted to make a thinner version. What I love about these headbands is that they're super fast and easy to knit and you can personalize it by changing the width however thick or thin you'd like! I hope you enjoy this free pattern!

This knotted headband is the perfect first project for those who want to start knitting! All you have to do is make a slip knot, cast on, stockinette stitch (purl one row, knit one row), slip the first stitch to create a smooth edge, bind off, fold and sew together! People will be so impressed because it looks like it's hard, when it's really SO easy!

Set Up Row 1: Purl


Row 2 and all RS Rows: Sl 1, Knit to end of row.
Row 3 and all WS Rows: Sl 1, Purl to end of row.

Repeat Rows 2-3 until your desired length. (I knitted for 19")


Make the Loop

With WS facing up, bring both edges together. (For video tutorial of this step, click here.)




Fold both sides in half and place the top half in your right hand in between both sides of your piece in your left hand. Fold the bottom half over so each half alternates. (VIDEO)


Sew them all together! (VIDEO)

Weave your ends, try it on and take a pic to post on your IG so I can see!!!
