Pattern – Cabled Knitted Headband (2035)


1 x 100g DK in Borage (approx 40g required for this project)

Tension / Gauge:

Tension is not crucial for this pattern.


Pair of Size 33/4 mm knitting needles,

One Size 3mm double-pointed knitting needle

One Blunt-ended wool needle for sewing up


Cast on 36 stitches

1st row: K to end (right side)

2nd row (and all alternate rows): K4, *(P4, K4) repeat from * until end

3rd and 5th row: as 1st row

7th row: K4, *(C4B, K4, C4F, K4) work from * twice

8th row: as 2nd row

These 8 rows form the pattern.

Repeat these 8 rows until work fits round the head slightly stretched (approximately 41 cm or 16 inches).

It is important that there is a slight stretch to avoid the piece being too loose around the head.

Recommendation: you may find it gives a neater edge at each side to slip the first stitch and knit the last stitch on every row after the first two rows have been worked.


At cast on edge: slide 3mm double-pointed needle through every st, ensuring that there are 36 sts.

Ensuring there is no twist in the piece, holding right sides together, cast off the two edges together. Turn right side out (cast off edge inside).

Sew in ends.
