60 Minute Headband

Knitted Headband or ‘Ear Warmer’ in One Hour

Remember that Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick that I had bought to make Jen’s Crochet Loop Stitch Pillow with last month? Well I found a way to use it.

When I got back in the house I grabbed my yarn and my size 13 needles.  As I started knitting I thought it just needed something else so I frogged it and grabbed a small amount of that Patons Stretch Sock yarn in Plum that I used for Ally’s Yoga socks.

  • Knitting with both strands I cast on 6, knitted until it was 2″ then k1, *k1, m1* til the last stitch, k1 which gave me a total of 10 stitches.
  • When the headband was 16″ I K1, *K2tog* to the last stitch, k1 for 2 inches and cast off.
  • Seamed up the ends and wallah had a very warm, very thick and soft headband.
