I am so excited to finally tell you what’s been up for the past few months. It all started early this year, when a friend requested a knit headband of owls after seeing my coffee cozy with my design. After I completed that, I realized it would make a great pattern.
So, I present to the knitted-pattern-world: the Hootenanny Band!
I was saving this skein of Malibrigo Rios (mentioned here) because it looked so pretty, but a last minute decision turned less than half of the skein into the headband that is modeled in my pattern. Only approximately 65 – 80 yards of worsted weight yarn is needed.
The pattern uses US #5 needles, and either US #4, #5, or #6 for the i-cord edging, depending on the fit you want to achieve. The headband is finished with twenty 1/4″ buttons for eyes. I’d rate the pattern difficulty at advanced beginner+ because of cabling, i-cord, and finishing techniques.
I learned so much writing my first pattern, and I hope that others will enjoy knitting this as much as I did.
If you feel so inclined, you can purchase it right here for $2.00 USD or you can mosey on over to Ravelry for more details. I can’t wait to see the finished projects that are added to the pattern page!
I have a couple more patterns up my (knit) sleeve, and I promise I will post a “free” pattern, too! 🙂
