Cashmears Headband
  0 customer reviews

The inspiration for this headband/ear warmer was a leftover skein of Capra 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.

To knit this pattern, you will need to know how to:
- work flat (knit and purl),
- slip stitches,
- cable using a cable needle,
- increase purlwise (using m1 increases), and
- decrease (using p2tog).

Notions needed:
- two cable needles
- yarn needle to weave in ends
- one 1 in./2.5 cm button

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)

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit.
