This headband knits up quickly, and is a great introduction to cables. One of my friends, Seawan, made a whole slew of them for Christmas gifts. You can get two headbands out of the Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran. In sample pictured (which my friend Becca knit), we used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece Serendipity Tweed. I think the colorway is called Pointsettia. My students and I practiced our cabling without a cable needle which I learned from Annie Modesitt many years ago at a knitting retreat in DC. Don't you think this would be a great thing to wear around Valentine's day? Here in Cordova, there are many days when if you're out on a hike, you get too warm for a hat, but it's still nice to keep the chill off your ears, so a headband makes the perfect accessory. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished headband measures approx. 19".
