Knitted EarWarmer or Headband Pattern

Updated on October 6, 2015

Earwarmer Headband

Knitted Horn Cable
Knitted Horn Cable

This cozy ear warmer or headband is a simple beginners project. But if the cable stitch is intimidating to you, I would define this as an Easy to Intermediate level pattern.

There is a large number of books with detailed instructions that help me learn back in the day. I found this pattern idea on a knitting book.

This is not the only way you can customize to your needs or preference. Using different size needles even with the same yarn with change the look of the finished product. But I'm sure you know that by know.

      I like this pattern but I prefer doing headbands using a provisional cast-on ( starting at 2:30 is a good demonstration) so that I can just kitchener stitch the ends together. To do this, after picking up the stitches from the cast on, purl straight across the first row as a set up before beginning the pattern. This will also help make everything more seamless at the end.
