Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on
  • Knit
  • Increase (KFB)
  • Decrease (k2tog)
  • Bind off

Pattern Description:

Welcome the cold weather with these quick-knit headbands. Because of their construction, they naturally curve to fit around a head. Three different sizes (child, adult small, adult large) and four different yarn weight options (DK, worsted, bulky, super bulky) ensure plenty of options to keep a knitter busy. There are additional modification suggestions after the main pattern, which include adding faux buttons, knitting a headband in cotton yarn suitable for exercising, using two strands of fingering or sport weight yarn, and intarsia stripes.

**Headbands are knit flat on straight needles.

**Seven pages of PDF written instructions include photo tutorials and no abbreviations!

**Metric measurements are included.

This is a great beginner's pattern. Knitters must only know how to cast on, knit, increase by knitting into the front and back of a stitch, and decrease by knitting two stitches together.

Pattern includes yarn brands used for each sample and amounts for the Adult Large size. One child sample is shown in worsted weight yarn in the intarsia headband style.


18 stitches and 38 rows = 4 inches in Garter stitch for Worsted pattern

Gauge is not critical but is included in pattern for each yarn weight.
