Headband - Free Pattern

Free knitting pattern for a headband with two strands of yarn

I made this pattern, because I wanted to do a new pattern out of a double held yarn work. It is my first english translation, so be kind and send any typos and language errors in a comment, on instagram or facebook to me, so that I can fix it. Have fun with this headband pattern and let me know, if you like it. 

Material

Headband pattern with two strands of yarn - Knitting pattern

Pattern

You need to take double yarn for knitting this project. Use the yarn from the inside and the outside of a ball at the same time, or make two balls out of one. You´ll knit the headband in rows and knit together the CO and BO edge at the end. Don´t worry, I´ll show you how it works!

CO 20 sts with US 6 needles and a provisional cast on. I recommend to use a crocheted provisional cast on, as it is shown in this video.

Row 1: slip the first half of the first stitch knitwise, *k the remaining half of the st tog with the first half of the next st, purl the remaining half together with the first half of the next st* - work from * to * until 3 sts left, p last 3 halfs (1.5 sts) tog

Row 2: turn the work, sl the first half st knitwise, *k the remaining half of the st tog with the first half of the next st, purl the remaining half together with the first half of the next st* - work from * to * till the end.

Work Row 2 until work measures 17,75 inches. To be sure, measure the headband and your head circumference. Your head should be a little bit wider than your headband. The yarn and pattern will be elastic.

Knit Together and Working the Bow

Put the sts from the provisional CO on a third needle and knit them together with your life stitches. = k2tog with one st of every needle. Be careful not to twist your headband. Work the BO while knitting together.
Cut the yarn and leave a long tail. Sew the tail in while pulling together the seam lightly.

Now you work the bow band: CO 5 sts and work in headband pattern, but without p sts. Just ktog one half of the first and one half of the next sts, until the bow band is long enough to go around the seam and making a nice bow out of your headband. Knit together the sts on your needle with the CO sts on the back of the headband. It´s not necessary to make a provisional CO, as you´ll not see the seam later. Cut the yarn and sew in the tail.
Your headband is finished! Have fun with it!

I´ll be happy to see your finished headbands on instagram (please use the hashtag #cficandothat or/and tag me @carosfummeley) facebook or twitter. I´d be also happy about your project pics on ravelry. You can find the pattern page here.
