I call this one the “crown headband” because it’s so big, it kind of looks like a crown. Kind of a winter interpretation of the flower crown trend. It’s a really simple pattern, and is a great way to practice cables! I get compliments on mine a lot, and am currently knitting some in other colors as gifts (for myself).
Note: This pattern starts with a provisional cast on with waste yarn, and is finished with a 3 needle bind off. If you prefer to just sew the seams together at the end, then just cast normally with your working yarn.
Us Size 13 knitting needles
Cable needle or DPN
Darning needle for sewing seams and/or weaving in ends
waste yarn (you can just use some yarn from the skein of hometown USA, or use a contrasing color super bulky yarn to make it easier to see)
Lion Brand Thick n’ Quick
CO: Cast on
C6F: Cable 6 front (sl next 3 stitches to CN & hold in front, k 3, k3 from CN)
C6B: Cable 6 back (sl next 3 stitches onto cn & hold in back, k3, k3 from cn)
cn: cable needle
Provisional cast on 11 stitches with waste yarn, or if you prefer not to use the provisional cast on method, just cast on your stitches as normal, and you will sew your seam together at the end.
Row 1: K11
Row 2: k1 P9 K1
Row 3: k1 C6F (sl next 3 stitches to CN & hold in front, k 3, k3 from CN), k4

Row 6: k1, p9, k1
Row 7: k4,C6B (sl next 3 stitches onto cn & hold in back, k3, k3 from cn), k1
Row 8: k1, p9, k1
Repeat rows 1-8 until desired length- (about 18-19 ” is good for a 20-21″ head, this headband will stretch when worn a couple times. )
Remove waste yarn, and place stitches on needle. Use 3 needle bind off to seam headband. You can watch a great video on how to do a 3 needle bind off here
. If you chose not to use the provisional cast on, then just sew the seams together.
Weave in ends and enjoy your crown, you’ve earned it!
I’m loving this triangle crochet stitch! I wanted a light scarf for these cool May- and probably June- days. Damn Ohio! I was lucky enough to get out with my photographer friend Carrie for some pro- photos that turned out absolutely dreamy! You can check out Carrie’s site here. I used worsted weight yarn, and a size US I9 (5.5mm) hook. But you can do this pattern in any multiple of 4+2 stitches, so feel free to use any weight yarn you like!
