Braided Headband PDF knitting pattern by Westlake Designs


Instant Digital Download

PLEASE NOTE: THIS LISTING IS FOR A PDF KNITTING PATTERN!! If you're looking for the ready-made headband, see:

I designed this braided headband that cinches at the front with a braided cable. It's a chic, yet practical earwarmer for a blustery day.

Free shipping- it's instantly downloadable!

Level: Beginner-intermediate. It's a great way to try your hand at knitting cables!

The Braided Headband Knit Kits, which include the pattern, birch wood knitting needles and a mini skein of 100% wool yarn are also available in my shop:

The headband is 5" wide across the ears and at the back, and 2 1/2" wide where the braid is. When resting it is 18" around, but it stretches comfortably up to 27" around.

3.5 sts= 1" and 3.5 rows= 1" in stockinette using 8mm needles

- one pair 8mm needles
- one cabling needle
- ~55 yards of yarn in proper gauge (e.g. Cascade Eco +)

Please note that neither the pattern nor the finished headbands are permitted for resale.
