(Note: Model (my son) had just woken up in the morning, but always ready for a photo opportunity, was happy to don the headband.)
I really wanted a headband for myself, but decided to knit a child-sized one, to see if I'd even like it. I also decided on a ribbed pattern to give it a litte more stretch.
Yarn: Worsted Weight (In photo above, I used Red Heart yarn (inexpensive), color 2940 Beach)
Needle size: #9
Cast on 74 sts (Depending on head size. My next attempt will be for an adult-sized head and I will use 84sts)
Knit one row
K2,P2 for about 2 inches, or desired width
Then, Knit one row (loosely) and bind off on the next row (loosely). Sew up the ends and you have a headband. It's a simple as that.
*You could have all kinds of fun making these. I'd like to try it in some fuzzy yarn. I'll be sure to share some pictures of my different projects.
(See what I made from here: pig)
Lovely book for beginners.
