A perfect little project for the beginner who has mastered stockinet, but would like a small project to warm up to stitch pattern on. If you already know what you’re doing then this guy knits up super fast. Because it requires so little yarn you can knit one in every colour, a great way to use up remnant balls.

Difficulty Rating: Super Simple

Yarn: Red Heart Eco-Ways Bamboo,55% bamboo 45% wool, 1 ball in Colour 3525 Peacock, 87 yards

Gauge:gauge for this project is unimportant since it’s knit to size, my gauge in star stitch (which is somewhat arbitrary) is 6.5sts X 4.5sts per inch

Size:Fits most heads since it’s stretchy

Materials:

Size 7US needles Sewing Needle
1 ½ inch of 1 inch wide elastic Thread

List of Abbreviations:

k-knit yo-yarn over
p-purl

Headband:

This headband is knit in Star Stitch:DSC_0267

Row 1 (WS): p
Row 2: k2, (yo, k3, pass first of the 3 knit sts over the 2nd and 3rd sts) repeat to the last st, k1
Row 3: p
Row 4:, k1, (k3, pass first of the 3 knit sts over the 2nd and 3rd sts, yo) repeat to the last 2 sts, k2

To Begin:

Cast on 15sts using your favourite method.

Knit in Star Stitch, slipping the 1st stitch in each row, until it measures 15 inches, approximately 86 rows, ending on a purl row. This will fit a 20 to 22 inch head, knit ½ inch to 1 inch longer to fit larger heads.

Bind off sts knitwise

Center your elastic in the middle of the wrong side of one end of the headband, so DSC_0270that the end is at the middle point length wise of the elastic. Fold over the left and right side of the knit fabric, so that they overlap. Using a needle and thread, and a running stitch sew the elastic to the headband folded over it. Repeat for the other side, so that the elastic is completely covered by the headband.

 

Easy Peasy!

      Mackena, How lovely to hear. I’m not sure I could have pulled this stitch off as a first knitting project. Not that it is all that difficult really, I stuck to stockinette and garter stitch because I felt confident knitting them. Thanks for leaving a comment. Great job.

    I’m really excited to make this project! I have a question, though. It says to slip the first stitch of each row, but if I do that for each of the rows in the star pattern, I don’t end up with 1 stitch to knit in row 2 (I’m left with no stitches left) or 2 st in row 4 (I only have one left). Am I not supposed to slip a stitch in each of these rows? Thanks!
