The “Knit Girl” Headband – Free Knitting Pattern

Knit Girl Headband - Free Knitting Pattern

I’m not quite ready for autumn. Although my living room is decorated with a garland of orange/red leaves and gourd bouquets and two jackolantern candles, it is 75 and Sunny out right now. Let’s not make warm hats yet, let’s do something Summery. Technically, it is still summer. Retail stores might tell you otherwise, lol.

Since the tie-back crochet headband I designed not too long ago worked out so well, a knit version was inevitable. You can make it with less than one skein of yarn. The pattern calls for some yarn overs and decreases, but nothing crazy. It’s worked in garter stitch (knit every row), until you reach about 16″. Then you will start the increases, work the main body of the headband for about 10″, then start the decrease. If you are comfortable working with a symbol chart, just scroll on down there is one provided! This is the first knitted chart I’ve made, so you expert chart readers and designers out there…be gentle.

Loveknitting.com supplied the yarn for this project. Don’t worry, hooker friends, they love crochet, too. The yarn is a light weight (3) soft cotton, Paintbox DK. Definitely take a look at all the pretty colors they have!
