Pattern Details

This was inspired by the Prada Fall Fashion Show 2010. Every model was wearing one. From cream to black. The lighter the yarn, the better to see your cables. If you have done my Classic Cabled Cowl Workshop, here on Craftsy, you are ready for this classic headband! If you are new to cables, this is a very simple project to get started on. Easily adjusts to fit any baby to adult. Just change the number of cables. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY This pattern looks very intricate and difficult. I assure you that any advanced beginner knitter will be able to easily follow this pattern! You will need to know how to knit and crochet as both are used in this pattern. You can omit the crochet edge portion if you wish! The results will still be fabulous! Also, you will need to be familiar with cables.

I was taught to knit by my mother in my teens in the '70's and I quickly went from that to cross stitch and then needlepoint. Life goes on to a full time job, marriage, a child and then in early in 2004, I was forced to stay off my feet. I pick up the needles and started with knitting a scarf and then another, and then another. Next thing I know, I have 50 of them. Off to a local art gallery I go to peddle my wares. They loved and sold them all. Creative Design was born. Three upscale children's boutiques and women's wear shops later, here I am. Fingers flyin' with an Etsy shop sheilalikestoknit and lovin' Craftsy! I can most often be found in "my chair" surrounded by a pile of yarn, fabric, more yarn, needles, another pile of yarn, patterns, more fabric...etc. We love to travel, eat good food, be with family and great friends. Knitwear: my handmade knitwear is lovingly created by me. The process of choosing great fabric and yarn colors is half the fun. Knitting it all up and seeing it come together is wonderful and the final moment of seeing this creation around someones neck, on a little body, noggin or in their stroller is the BEST. My Philosophy: I am committed to quality fabric and fiber. Attention to detail, craftsmanship and customer satisfaction will always be part of that philosophy.
