A headband warms, without the hairstyle must suffer, it can be put on without a mirror and finds its place in every coat pocket. What could be better than to knit such a practical headband with cable pattern according to our instructions. The best in all colors, so that each outfit has its matching warm holder.

Of course, there are many different models of how a headband can be knit. We decided on a band with a cable pattern. In our knitting instructions we show you how easy it is to knit such a cable pattern. You do not have to be a knit artist for that. Step by step, we show you how, even as a beginner, you can knit such a cable pattern that goes over 9 stitches.

Material and preparation

A headband should, of course, warm naturally. Therefore, it is recommended to use a yarn that has a high wool . Highly recommended is a high quality merino wool. The merino sheep is known for tender wool that does not scratch and itch. The perfect yarn for accessories. Merino wool is available in different designs. This can be 100% merino, but there are also merino yarns that usually have a percentage of viscose or polyacrylic. These admixtures ensure easy care.

For our knitting instructions we used a merino yarn. There is this wool in all colors. We chose a yarn that has an irregular nappy effect.

With a run length of 170 meters / 100 grams of wool we needed 60 grams of yarn. So that the headband is not too loose and thus misshapen, we have specified with a thinner needle size than on the banderole was knitted. We worked with needle size # 4, 5.

As a needle for the Verzopfung we have used a conventional auxiliary needle in the needle size of our knitting needles. You can buy it in any craft or haberdashery shop. But, she does not necessarily have to be. You can also use a normal short knitting needle for the Verzopfung. It fulfills the same purpose.

After our knitting instructions you need:

  • 60 grams of merino wool
  • 1 pair of needle size 4.5 knitting needles
  • Auxiliary needle for the Verzopfung
  • darning needle
  • tape measure
  • scissors

Before you start knitting, you should measure the head circumference of the person wearing the self-made headband. So you can work exactly to measure. Of course, you can always measure directly on the head while knitting and check how much you still need to knit.

Tip: Before you start our instructions for the final knitting work, always knit a small stitch with different needle sizes. Even if you think this is unnecessary - years of knitting experience shows it is necessary. Because the stitches you see very quickly, which needle size you should use, so that the piece of knitting corresponds exactly to your imagination. This is usually done by knitting 10 stitches in width and 10 rounds in height. It is ideal if you knit the basic pattern. According to our instructions, it would be the simple patent pattern.

Knit basic pattern

Our headband consists of the patented pattern, the cable pattern and right and left stitches.

A knitting line is divided in such a way:

  • edge stitch
  • 4 mesh pearles
  • 2 left stitches
  • 9 stitches cable pattern
  • 2 left stitches
  • 4 mesh pearles
  • edge stitch

edge stitch

The edge stitch should make a nice beginning and end of the knitting line at a headband.

You can do this by knitting the edge stitch as follows:

Always knit the edge stitch at the end of a row as a right stitch. Turn to work. Now lift the edge stitch only from the left needle. The thread is at work. The needle of the right hand pierces this first stitch on the left needle from behind, pulls it from the needle and continues to knit normally. So this first stitch in a row is not knitted, but only lifted off.

Smooth left

Smooth left means that left-hand stitches are knitted in the front row and knit stitches in the back row.

seed stitch

The 1st and 2nd row:

1 stitch on the right, 1 stitch on the left, 1 stitch on the right, 1 stitch on the left. Continue to knit the entire row in this order. The second row, so the back row is always knitted as the stitches appear. That is, if you knit a right-hand stitch on the front, it appears on the back row as a left-hand stitch. Accordingly, this stitch is knitted in the second round as a left stitch.

3rd and 4th row:

In the 3rd row, the stitches are knit staggered. That is, a right stitch becomes a left stitch, and a left stitch knits a right stitch. Knit the back row as the stitches appear.

cable stitch

Our cable pattern consists of 9 stitches. That is, the braid is divided into 3 mesh groups of 3 stitches, which are then knotted together in different rows.

At the beginning of the braid pattern, knit the first 4 rows of plain right.

3rd row

18th row - back row
Knit all stitches on the left. In this order, knit the entire length of the braid pattern. Rounds 5 to 12 are constantly repeated.

Tip: To make sure you do not forget which stitches you have just strapped, simply put a marker on the braid. So, in the following braid, you'll see exactly whether you need to pick the first three stitches or the stitches 4, 5, and 6.

From these basic patterns - pearl pattern, smooth right and cable pattern - the headband is composed.

Headband with cable pattern

The following information refers to a headband that has this size:

  • Width: 11 centimeters
  • Length: 53 centimeters
  • Wool: Needle size 4.5 to 5

Tip: Even if you work according to our knitting instructions, you can of course vary the size.

If you want to make the headband wider, simply apply 2 or 3 stitches on both sides for the pear pattern. Also, the part next to the braid, which is knitted smooth left, you can widen by 1 or 2 stitches on each side. Only on this cable pattern you can not change anything, this must be knitted with 9 stitches.
