It is that time of the year to wear light knits and in the last few years I have loved to wear headbands while I exercise on the dirt roads in the country side or just at home when it is a little chilly and we are relaxing by the fireplace.

I have made knit headbands before but this one is one of the Knit headband patterns that I released in 2.020. The Mary hat knitting pattern features a couple of cables that so many knitters have enjoyed to work on and thought they would look so pretty and delicate on a headband.

The Mary Headband is an Intermediate knitting pattern and it works up pretty quickly, which is great if you would like to make a few as gifts or for yourself in a variety of colors. You will have a pretty piece to wear in no time. I have made quite a few and I am not tired of making it. I hope you enjoy working on it as well.




 The Mary Headband Knitting Pattern features an I-cord edge that gives the edges such a clean and professional look. If you are not familiar with an I-cord edge, in the pattern I share a link to the Tutorial I made for you in my You Tube Channel so you can follow along and learn this technique. It is not as complicated as you might think and it is always fun to learn a new technique. I assure you that it is worth learning it to add a clean look to this piece.

The Mary Headband works up in a rectangle shape and at the end you will seam up the edges. I included a Tutorial for this technique as well.

The yarn I used for this sample is Touch of Alpaca from Lion Brand Yarn. To see all the colors they have available for this yarn, please click here and search Touch of Alpaca in the search bar.

They are all so pretty and I love the quality of this yarn. If you have another yarn in your stash in the same weight, that would work great as well.

Last but not least, my son, 11, and I, have been working as a team since last year and he has been in charge of editing my videos, tutorials and producing my commercials for You Tube. It has been so fun and sweet to hold meetings with him, decide on what approach to take and the final look. He has also produced most of the music and that in itself has been so cool... there is no other word to describe it. To take a look at the Ad he made for The Mary Hat Knitting Pattern, please click here.
