Sparkling Headband

Lion Brand® Vanna's Glamour® - Fun Fur®


24 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over cable pattern. 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


3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

Seed St (multiple of 2 sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: P the knit sts, and k the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for Seed st.

With smaller needles and A, cast on 24 sts.
Work in Seed st for 6 rows.
Beg Cable Pattern
Row 1 (RS):
Work in Seed st as established over 3 sts, (p2, k6) twice, p2, work in Seed st as established over last 3 sts.
Row 2: Work in Seed st as established over 3 sts, (k2, p6) twice, k2, work in Seed st as established over last 3 sts.
Rows 3-6: Rep last 2 rows twice.
Row 7 (RS): Work in Seed st as established over 3 sts, (p2, 3/3 LC) twice, p2, work in Seed st as established over last 3 sts.
Row 8: Rep Row 2.
Rows 9 and 10: Rep Rows 1 and 2.
Rep Rows 1-10 until Headband measures about 18 1/2 in. (47 cm) from beg, end with a WS row. Note: End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row.
Work in Seed st for 6 rows.
Bind off.

Overlap ends of Headband and pin together. Try on Headband and adjust to fit comfortably. With sewing needle and thread, seam lapped ends in place.
With larger needles and B, cast on 24 sts.
Work in Garter st (knit every st of every row) until piece measures about 5 1/2 in. (14 cm) from beg. Bind off, leaving a long yarn tail.
Thread yarn tail into blunt needle, then sew large running sts around outside edge of piece. Stuff, then draw edges together adding additional stuffing if needed to create a rounded sphere. Knot yarn tail tightly, then with same tail, sew Pouf to Headband.
Weave in ends.

Sparkling Headband Reviewed by Lois Schaefer on 2011-11-30 *****
I am so pleased with the results of this pattern. I made it in black wool with a black fun fur ball for trim. It's really elegant. I am going to make another for a gift.
