Knitting a headband – knitting instructions for the cable pattern

Even knitted accessories are simply part of the cold season. Nothing is easier than knitting or crocheting these chic extras that you simply have to have yourself. A headband with a cable pattern is such a fashionable accessory that belongs to the winter collection in all colors and the most varied of variants. A headband warms without the hairstyle having to suffer, it can be put on without a mirror and finds its place in every coat pocket. So what could be more obvious than knitting such a practical headband with cable pattern yourself according to our instructions. Ideally in all colors so that every outfit has its right warming holder.

There are of course many different models of how a headband can be knitted. We decided on a ribbon with a cable pattern. In our knitting instructions we show you how easy it is to knit such a cable pattern. You don’t have to be a knitting artist to do this. We will show you step by step how you can knit such a cable pattern that goes over 9 stitches even as a beginner.

Material and preparation

A headband should primarily warm you naturally. It is therefore advisable to use a yarn that has a high percentage of wool. High-quality merino wool is highly recommended. The merino sheep is known for its delicate wool that does not scratch or itch. The perfect yarn for accessories. Merino wool is available in different designs. It can be 100% merino, but there are also merino blended yarns, which usually have a percentage of viscose or polyacrylic. These admixtures ensure easy maintenance.

We used a merino blend yarn for our knitting instructions. This wool is available in all colors. We decided on a yarn with an irregular nubby effect.

With a run length of 170 meters / 100 grams of wool, we needed 60 grams of yarn. To prevent the headband from becoming too loose and misshapen, we knitted with a needle size thinner than the one indicated on the banderole. We worked with size 4.5 needles.

We used a conventional auxiliary needle the same size as our knitting needles as the needle for the braiding. You can buy them in any handicraft or haberdashery store. But it doesn’t have to be. You can also use a normal short knitting needle for braiding. It serves the same purpose.

According to our knitting instructions you will need:

60 grams of merino wool

1 pair of knitting needles, size 4.5

Needle for the braiding

Darning needle

Tape measure

scissors

Before you start knitting, you should measure the head circumference of the person who will wear the knitted headband. So you can work exactly to measure. Of course, you can also measure directly at the head while you are knitting and check how much you still have to knit.

Tip: Before you start the final knitting work according to our instructions, please always knit a small sample of stitches with different needle sizes. Even if you think this is unnecessary, years of knitting experience show it is necessary. Because with the stitch samples you can see very quickly which needle size you should use so that the knitted piece corresponds exactly to your ideas. Usually 10 stitches in width and 10 rounds in height are sufficient. It is ideal if you knit the basic pattern while doing this. According to our instructions, it would be the simple patent model.

Knit basic pattern

Our headband consists of the patent pattern, the cable pattern and right and left stitches.

A row of knitting is divided as follows:

Edge stitch

4 stitches in pearl pattern

Purl 2 stitches

9 stitches cable pattern

Purl 2 stitches

4 stitches in pearl pattern

Edge stitch

Edge stitch

With a headband, the edge stitch should form a nice beginning and end of the row of knitting.

You can do this if you knit the edge stitch like this:

Always knit the edge stitch at the end of a row as a right stitch. Turn work. Now lift the edge stitch off the left needle only. The thread is in front of the work. The needle of the right hand goes into this first stitch on the left needle from behind, pulls it off the needle and continues to knit normally. So this first stitch in a row is not knitted, but only lifted off.

Stockinette stitch means that purl stitches are knitted on the right side and these stitches are knitted on the wrong side.

Pearl pattern

The 1st and 2nd row:

1 stitch to the right, 1 stitch to the left, 1 stitch to the right, 1 stitch to the purl. Work the entire row in this order. The 2nd row, i.e. the back row, is always knitted as the stitches appear. That means, if you knit a right stitch on the front side, it will appear as a purl stitch on the wrong side. Accordingly, this stitch is also knitted as a purl stitch in the back round.

3rd and 4th row:

In the 3rd row the stitches are knitted offset. That means: a right stitch becomes a purl stitch and a left stitch becomes a right stitch. Work the wrong side again as the stitches appear.

Cable knit

Our cable pattern consists of 9 stitches. This means that the braid is divided into 3 mesh groups with 3 stitches each, which are then twisted together in different rows.

At the beginning of the cable stitch the first 4 rows are knitted in stocking stitch.

1st row

Right stitches

2nd row – back row

Purl stitches

3rd row

Right stitches

4th row – back row

Purl stitches

5th row

Place the first three stitches of the cable on a needle behind the work. Knit stitches 4, 5 and 6. Then knit off the stitches on the needle. Knit the last three stitches of the cable pattern.

6th row – back row

Purl all stitches in the cable.

7th row

Right stitches

8th row – back row

Purl stitches

9th row

Right stitches

10th row – back row

Purl stitches

11th row

Knit the first three stitches. Place stitches 4, 5 and 6 on the needle before work. Knit stitches 7, 8 and 9. Now knit the stitches on the cable needle.

12th row – back row

Purl all stitches

13th / 14th / 15th and 16th row

Work the same way as rows 7 to 10

17th row

Work this row like the 5th row. Place the first three stitches of the braid on the needle behind the work. Knit 4, 5 and 6 on the right. Then knit the stitches on the needle. Knit the last three stitches (stitches 7/8 and 9) again on the right.

18th row – back row

Purl all stitches. In this order you will knit the entire length of the cable pattern. Rounds 5 to 12 are repeated over and over again.

Tip: So that you do not forget which stitches you have just braided, simply insert a marker at the braid. In the following braiding you can see exactly whether you have to braid the first three stitches or the 4, 5 and 6 stitches.

The headband is made up of these basic patterns – pearl stitch, stocking stitch and cable stitch.

Headband with cable pattern

The following information relates to a headband that is this size:

Width: 11 centimeters

Length: 53 centimeters

Wool: Needle size 4.5 to 5

Tip: Even if you work according to our knitting instructions, you can of course vary the size.

If you want the headband to be wider, simply cast on 2 or 3 more stitches on both sides for the moss stitch. You can also widen the part next to the cable that is worked in stocking stitch by 1 or 2 stitches on each side. The only thing you can’t change is this cable pattern, it has to be knitted with 9 stitches.

Knit these four rows again without twisting stitches. Only knit the stitches of the pearl pattern offset from the right side. After these 22 rounds you will have understood the sequence and the system of the cable stitch.

This is how you continue to knit the headband in the order of rows 1 to 12. This sequence starts with the first four rows, which are knitted without cables. Then follows the row of the first braiding, in which the first three stitches are placed on a needle behind the work. Then there are four normal rows again without braids. Only then comes the row in which the stitches are twisted before work. After the last row of knitting cast off all stitches. Sew up the working threads. Sew the two sides – beginning and end rows – together.
