Pattern Description:

My daughter wanted an earband that would be warm, thin, not itchy, and above all, very cool. This design met her requirements.

Soft Malabrigo Rios Yarn or Wool of the Andes Yarn, knit on smaller than usual needles for a tight fabric and seed stitch edges to allow it to lie flat.

Three length, SM (MED, LG). If in doubt, and the intended wearer is not there to be measured, MED is the best bet, but you can knit it any length you like and customize for the wearer. Remember to make it about 1.5 inches smaller than wearer's head to allow for stretch.

Great quick gift, very elegant in heathered or tonal yarns that can show off the stitches and give richness to the final product.


15 sts = 2 ins in cable pattern
