Minty Morning Headband


FREE headband knitting pattern!

Gosh I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted a new knitting pattern! But I’m back at it and what I wanted to share with you was this simple, satisfying pattern that you can finish in an evening! The Minty morning headband features cabled edges, and a middle braided cable.

I only had a little bit of this colorway in Vanna’s Choice yarn left, so I knew I wanted to make something small. If you’re up for a quick, fun, fashionable project, let’s get started!

Begin Pattern:

Using US Size 9 knitting needlles, CO. 28sts.

Row 1, 5: K6, P4, K8, P4, K6

Row 2, 4, 6, 8 : P6, K4, P8, K4, P6

Row 3: C6B, P4,  K2, C6F, P4, C6F

Row 7: C6B, P4,  C6B, K2, P4, C6F

Repeat pattern until headband measures about 17-19 inches, bind off, and sew seam. Enjoy!

And… If you’re looking for more patterns- I’ve just added a new hat pattern to my shop:

The Dottie Hat features a light worsted yarn in a diagonal lace pattern. It’s comfy, cute, and perfect for transitioning into (or out of) winter!

Or in this case, alpaca! I knitted up this asymmetrical cowl in an evening of T.V. watching, and man do I love it. The free pattern is a really simple one, and I modified it a little bit by using K1 P1 ribbing instead of Garter stitch. Some nights making up an entire pattern on my own takes too much brain power, so I like to let another designer do the thinking for me.

I grabbed this awesome pattern by Susan Chang on Ravelry, and it only took a couple hours. I wasn’t watching the clock but I’m pretty sure by the end of 2 episodes of The Walking Dead I was done.

All you need to make this cowl is some super bulky yarn ( I used Yarn Bee Effortless Superbulky, which is a nice Alpaca Acrylic blend that you can find at Hobby Lobby), some size US13 (9.0mm) knitting needles, and a yarn needle for weaving ends and sewing the asymmetrical seam. This pattern didn’t even use up the entire skein. In fact I could probably get another one out of it!


Check out the pattern here on Ravelry, and to make my modified version simply work in K1, P1 ribbing and always slip the last 1st st. of the row. I also seamed it a bit differently, more in the middle as you can see in the last photo.

Winter Seeds : Free Seed Stitch Infinity Scarf Knitting Pattern

free seed stitch infinity scarf pattern

Happy September! Who’s ready for fall yet? I’ll admit, after a year in the Caribbean, I’m excited to break out my jeans, boots, and of course, my yarn! I knitted this infinity scarf in Belize, awaiting the day when I’d actually be able to wear it. Unfortunately, that day has not come as it is 95 degrees here in Ohio. I’m in no rush to say goodbye to the sun, but I am ready to say hello to my cowls!

This is a really simple pattern, and great for beginners. What I love most about my pattern is the yarn. The mint green and gray colorway from Nerd Girl Yarns was so amazing I bought 5 skeins so…. matching hat to come? I think so. Ok, onto the knitting!

 

Please note: This pattern is available to view on the blog for free, if you would like a printable version, it is available for purchase in my Ravelry shop.
