Yarn: Debbie Bliss Rialto DK Print (100% Merino Superwash Wool; 114 yards [105 meters]/50 grams); #47008 Roma - one skein

Needles: One pair of US 6 needles, one US 7 needle for provisional cast on, and a cable needle (cn) or double pointed needle for cabling

Notions: Tapestry needle

Gauge: 22 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette

So let's make a headband! Using your larger needle, cast on 28 stitches provisionally. Transfer cast on to your size 6 needles. Then, we'll begin our main pattern and some garter edging, for which we'll need the following notation. Oh, and this pattern is an excellent choice if you're ready to cable without a cable needle as well.

back cross (bc): slip next two stitches to cn and hold in back; k2, k2 from cn

front cross (fc): slip next two stitches to cn and hold in front; k2, k2 from cn
And now that we've got that down, we'll continue like so:

Row 1 (wrong side): k2, p24, k2
Row 2: k2, (bc, fc) 3 times, k2
Row 3: k2, p24, k2

Row 4: knit

Row 5: k2, p24, k2

Row 6: k2, (fc, bc) 3 times, k2

Row 7: k2, p24, k2

Row 8: knit

Knit rows 1 - 8 until piece measures roughly 21" - 23" and you've just finished row 7 of the pattern (size tips: you're going to want it at least an inch shorter than your head size, and if you're guessing it's probably better to aim smaller rather than larger). Block flat, if you'd like, and then graft the two ends of the headband together using the Kitchener stitch. Finally, tuck in ends!
