The inspiration for this headband/ear warmer was a leftover skein of a cashmere-blend yarn that was too soft and pretty to toss back into the stash -- I wanted it to keep me warm!
Cashmears uses a faux I-cord edging and an usual cable that looks a bit like a chain. It knits up very quickly and is a fun challenge if you want to try something beyond a simple rope cable.
Finished dimensions: 2.25 in./5.5 cm wide and 22 (24.5) in./56 (62) cm long (laid flat; ends are overlapped a bit when worn)
Please note that while the recommended yarn is classified as a DK, I find that it knits up like a light worsted. Thus, yarns in either weight category will work well for this pattern.
17 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
75 yards of DK weight
I learned to knit from my aunt when I was about 7 years old, but it wasn't until 2005 that I got really serious about the sticks and string. I learned to spin in 2008 and began designing in 2011. Now my house is slowly being taken over by yarn and fiber.
