Braided Headband

Lion Brand® Microspun

GAUGE:

One Headband Strip = 1 in. [2.5 cm] wide. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

HEADBAND STRIP (make 3)
With 1 strand A and 1 strand B held together, cast on 5 stitches.
Row 1: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, (purl 1, knit 1) twice.
Row 2: Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, (knit 1, purl 1) twice.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until Strip measures 12 in. [30.5 cm] from beginning. Bind off.

Finishing
Place 3 Strips on top of one another and sew together at one end. Braid Strips, and then sew together at other end. Weave in ends. Cut ribbon length in half, sew one half to each end of Headband.

Braided Headband Reviewed by macey toomer on 2011-02-04 *****
I love this pattern. It was so easy. I made mine to be about 18inches and sewed a hair tie to it so it would fit comfortably.
