Please note: this pattern is now available to download as a pdf from Craftsy for $2. It will still be freely available on this blog, but I thought people might want the opportunity to download a pdf version.
A cute bow headband in a superbulky luxury yarn. This headband knits up incredibly speedily, perfect for a last minute gift.
Yarn : Debbie Bliss Como, one 50g ball ( = 42 metres) .
Needles : 10mm / US 15 needles.
k = knit
p = purl
CO = cast on
First make the headband:
Cast on 11 stitches. Work every row the same:
*k1 p1* to last stitch, k1.
Keep going until your headband is around 18'' long. Bind off and sew the short sides together to make a loop.
Now make the "knot" part for the front:
Cast on 7 stitches. Again, work every row the same:
*k1 p1 * to last stitch, k1.
Keep going until the "knot" is 5'' long.
Now comes the (slightly) trick bit. Wrap the 5'' "knot" around the headband (preferably covering the headband seam) and sew its shorter ends together.
Weave in any loose ends and you're done!
