Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a great start to your week! Over the weekend, I knit a double sided headband and I am super excited to share the pattern with you! I used some nicer yarn for this than my regular lion brand, including the Cascasde 220 Yarn Superwash DK in Gray and Schachenmayer Originals Wool 125 in Petrol. I am not sure where you can get the second yarn because I had a difficult time finding it again. Here is a picture of one side of the finished headband below.
- Cast on 14
- Knit one, purl one, alternating until the end of the row (the last stitch should be a purl stitch)
- Purl one, knit one, alternating until the end of the row (the last stitch should be a knit stitch)
- Continue steps 2 and 3 for approximately 155 rows (or until you can fit the headband around your head) and cast off.
- Repeat steps 1-4 with a second color of your choice.
Then, I recommend sewing together the beginning and the end of the headband on both colors to make a complete circle. I did just leave the strings hanging down at the end because I am going to wrap them around the front as the last step.
Next, to form the double sided headband, I did a row of single crochet around the top and the bottom. In the picture below, you can see I haven’t yet sewed the two ends together, but I definitely recommend doing that first. You can also just sew the two pieces together with a yarn needle, but I liked to look of the border.
Lastly, you can take the excess yarn and wrap around the part that you sewed together as many times as you can to make a nice detail in the front. Then, pull the end of the yarn underneath the multiple layers and tie off, hiding the knot.
Here is the grey side of the finished headband. I am really loving it and I like that I can change the side based on what I am wearing. I also love how easy and quick it was to make!
I hope you enjoyed this pattern and thanks for reading!
