I don’t know what’s with me lately. I’ve been making and thinking about headbands all the time. Part of it I think because it is fun to make and it doesn’t take too long to knit. I’ve already planned on making my husband a gardening headband for him. He sweats a lot when he’s out gardening in a hot summer.

For this particular headband, I didn’t use much yarn at all. The mixed cotton/acrylic leftover yarns (by GGH called "Bali") in blue and purple I found in my stash turned out just fine for this project. I used 4mm (US 6) rather than size 4 suggested by the label.


1. 1 ball of dk or sport weight yarn in light color of your choice (color A).

2. 1 ball of dk or sport weight yarn in darker color of your choice (color B).

3. A pair of knitting needles US size # 6 (4mm).

4. Tapestry needle to sew ends together.


Special Abbreviation:

Make Star = P3tog leaving sts on needle, yrn (yarn round needle once), then purl the same 3 sts together again.

With Color A, CO 23 sts. Follow pattern below using color A for 1st and 2nd rows and color B for 3rd and 4th row;

1st row (right side): Knit.

2nd row: K2, *Make star, p1; repeat from * to last 5 sts, Make star, k2.

3rd row: Change to color B and Knit to the end.

4th row: K2, p2, *Make star, p1; repeat from * to last 7 sts, Make star, p2, k2.

Repeat these 4 rows until the band is about an inch less than your desired length, then bind off all sts. Cut yarn leaving about 15 inches tail for sewing ends. Use a tapestry needle and the yarn tail to sew ends together.
