Really Easy Headband To Knit

This mohair headband design could not be easier to knit, and it is ideal for trying out or using up leftover bits of mohair or other fuzzy yarn that you may have in your stash.

When you knit mohair yarn on large knitting needles, you don’t need a fancy lace pattern to create a garment that is light, airy and soft, as well as very pretty looking.

Needles and yarn required:

9mm straight needles and 20g mohair in double knitting thickness. 

Yarn used for headband in photograph:

Colinette mohair.

Tension Gauge:

In 5cm – 6 stitches and 6 rows.

Finished measurements:

Width. 11m, length 44cm.

Knitting Pattern:

Cast on 18 stitches.

Knit in garter stitch (k every row)  until work is of desired length. Cast off in K.  Sew up two ends and weave in loose ends.

Make centre:

Cast on 12 stitches.  Knit until 7cm from cast on edge and cast off. 

Make up and finish:

Sew up the two ends of the headband.  Place the centre piece around the sewn ends and sew it to secure on the reverse.  Weave in all loose ends.
