Free,Easy Knitted Headband Pattern



I don’t know about you! but when the weather gets colder, it really effects my ears, yesterday while walking Betty, my ears were on FIRE, so I decided to knit myself and my daughter a head/ear warmer!

These head bands are SUPER EASY and perfect for a Beginner Knitter!

This pattern is very basic, so please feel free to use it for both personal and comercial uses, although it would be really lovely if you could link back to me :)

I will be adding this pattern to Raverly under the name of Autumn Gypsy Bow

I used a 10mm needle

Pattern for Adult.

 
Using a super chunky yarn { I used King Cole “Gypsy” in shade 88 } CO* 50 stitches , and knit 10 rows. Bind off loosely, leave a long tail.

Sew both ends together and pull yarn to create tension and the “bow” like shape, secure with a knot.
Using the left over tails, start wrapping them around the middle of the bow shape you created, and add whatever beads** (if you’re going to use them) secure the ends by wrapping around and behind  the back of the bow. Knot and weave in ends.
Pull tight to create "Bow" shape!
Without beads!
With beads added!
{Alternatively create a bow band from the pattern below} 

* Cast on 45 for a tighter fit! - I used long tail cast on method making sure I left enough yarn to wrap around the centre to create my “Bow” so make it longer to compensate for that, if using this method.

** The beads I used have huge holes, so I could just thread them straight on to the super chunky yarn. If the beads you want to use are smaller you will have to sew them on using thread.
Pattern for Child.

Headband.

Again using super chunky yarn CO 36 stitches, Knit 10 rows and Bind off loosely.  Sew ends together and pull yarn to create tension and bow shape, knot and weave in the ends.

 

Bow Band.

 CO 10 stitches knit 3 or 6 rows* (depending how thick you want it) Bind off. Wrap around the bow shape you created on your head band, and sew ends so that they are on the wrong side, sew the tails into the headband taking care not to push your needle right through, this will secure the little band in place. Knot and weave in ends.

*I used 6 for Sophia’s as she wanted a thicker Bow, for myself I would have done three rows!


 

Enjoy :)

  6. What a great pattern for this time of year. I have to spend a lot of time standing outdoors and I dislike wearing a hat. This will be just the thing to keep me comfortable.

    By the way I am putting a link to this pattern on my website. I hope that is OK by you. I'd like to include the at least one photo.

  24. I love this! I made one and it's so cute :) I would recommend if you are a small adult to CO 40ish instead of 45. Mine is a little big so I will probably give it to someone for Christmas. I found this on Pinterest and I will definitely recommend it to my knitting friends. I had only ever previously made scarves and I wanted to try something to see if I could do it. It was so easy! I can't wait to wear mine this winter.

  25. Where do you find the yarn? I am in an area where JoAnn and Michels are the only stores (WalMart but I don't like to go there). I want to make one for my granddaughter for Christmas.
