Lucky Horseshoe Cabled Headband

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, cable

Pattern Description:

I wanted a nice wide headband that was big enough to fit my large head. All the ones in the stores pop off!! If I make one on circlar needles, inevitably it is too small. I set this up on straight needles so that I could just continue knitting until it was the right length! This way it can be made for man, women or child of all head sizes. The cable pattern is a horseshoe which is one of my favorite cable patterns.


approximately 4 stitches to the inch. Gauge is not very important in this project.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 21 inches long and 4.5 inches wide


  • Size 5.5 or 6.0 mm straight needles (US size 9 or 10)
  • Cable needle
  • 50 grams of bulky weight wool

You Will Also Need:

  • scissors, measuring tape, darning needle
