Ok I wanted to make a simple Fair Isle beanie hat and as I knit I realised that the design looked all a little bit too much like Wonder Woman.
Don’t get me wrong – this is a good thing. However, I suddenly needed to make a full on Wonder Woman hat and therefore needed not to use up my yarn (the yarn is called Andania it is a delicious pure alpaca made by a German company).
You can use any chunky yarn that is suitable for 6mm needles to make this headband.
So, not wanting to use up my WW coloured yarn I changed this design into a headband and here is the resulting knitting pattern which is available to you for free.
It is knit in the round as I think that Fair Isle is much easier when knitting in the round. If you prefer to knit straight headbands you might like this knitting pattern booklet for colourful headbands.

Headband Knitting Pattern
So, take 5mm circular needles (40cm length) and, in blue yarn cast on 60 stitches.
Join to work in round and work 1 x 1 rib for 6 rows.
Add in yellow yarn and switch to 6mm circular needles (also 40cm). Now knit 2 stitches blue and 2 stitches yellow in Fair Isle for 4 rounds.
Cut the blue yarn and add in Red. Work 2 stitches red and 2 yellow for 4 rows as before. Then switch back to 5mm needles and working only in red, work 6 rounds of 1 x 1 rib. Then cast off in rib and tidy up the loose yarn ends.
I really do love this Wondrous Woman headband and will be wearing it often. Hope you like the pattern!
