Cable Lesson Headband

Super Easy and Quick!

Super Easy and Quick!

This was a true knitting SCORE!!!!

I think anyone who has ever tried to knit for a teenager will agree with me.

This knitting success was defined when DD curled her hair before a very early morning Christmas Tree expedition and then to my surprise she dons the cable knit headband I made her and ASKS if I will take her photo!

This is a super easy project and a fun way to start learning the basics of cable knitting.

Materials: Bulky Weight Yarn, Size 11 or 13 needles, and a cable needle.

Cast on 17sts   (If you want to get real fancy use the provisional cast-on and then at the end you can join the two ends with a 3 needle bind-off)

Here is the chart

Repeat these 8 rows until headband is snug around your head about ~20 inches.

Bind off and sew ends together (or use 3 needle bind-off if you used a provisional Cast-On)
