(This pic may not sell it to you - apologies! This is a quick snap to show what it looks like on!)
It will take:
Approx 30mins to an hour depending on how quick you are!
You will need:
Approx 50g of Arran weight yarn (or use DK doubled up)
Circular needle (60cm long) or 4 x dpns (whichever you prefer) - 5.5mm
(Note: Can be made for Small / Medium / Large adult heads by following the corresponding stitch numbers)
Cast On 80 / 84 / 88 stitches (if working on dpn's split over 4 needles)
Knit 1/2 inch in 2x2 rib (k2,p2),
At the end of the last round increase 1 stitch, leaving an odd number (81 / 85 / 89) of stitches.
Continue for 1 - 2 inches (depending on required thickness) in seed stitch (*k1, p1 repeat from * to end)
(NB: The odd number of stitches on the needle means that this will automatically knit up into seed stitch in the round)
On the last round of seed stitch, decrease 1 stitch by k2tog at the end of the row, so you have an even number of stitches again (80 / 84 / 88).
Continue in 2x2 rib (k2, p2) for 1/2 inch
Cast off (Don't cast off too tightly!)
And Voila! You have a basic textured headband that you can customise as much as you like!
Give the pattern a try, and let me know if it works for you!
