  • 2.5 mm knitting needles
  • Less than half a skein of Bamboo cotton yarn. This yarn is super soft and delicate, I just love it.
  • Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. I love this set as it has different eye sizes for different yarn thicknesses and it comes in a small tube which is very convenient so I don’t lose them.
  • T pins for blocking


  • st = stitch
  • k = knit (k2 means knit 2 stitches)
  • inc = increase. I use the knit 2 stitches in the same stitch method (also known as kfb)
  • k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
  • yo = yarn over = bring the yarn forward

Using the lace stitch below, the gauge is 28 st by 54 rows for a 10cm by 10cm square

Repeat instructions between ** the indicated number of times or until the end of the row.


I have indicated standard sizes as follows adult (baby, toddler, child, tween).

To adjust the pattern to your head size, measure the diameter of your head and replace the 57cm / 22 1/2″ below (in the lace part) with your measure.

Lightly block your headband without stretching it. To do this, humidify your headband and pin it to your blocking mat.

Don’t skip this step as it can make a huge difference.

Once it is completely dry, remove the pins. Your headband is ready to be worn. Tie a not and wear it however you want. The possibilities are endless.
