Knitted Cinched Headband


Hey guys!

This was one of my first projects I ever did, and one of my favorites! It's great for winter, really cute and super easy to make!

Here are the supplies you'll need:
  • Yarn
  • Knitting needles
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery needle
Step 1: Cast on about 12-15 stitches with the yarn of your choice.

Step 2: Knit until you've made a rectangle that will stretch to the size of your head.

Step 3: End your knitted piece and sew together using an embroidery needle.

Step 4: Pinch the sewed area of the headband to make the cinched area. (same technique as the Knitted Bow Tutorial)

Step 5: Tie a knot around the cinched area.

Step 6: Wrap the area repeatedly. I usually stop once the cinched area is 2-3 inches long.

Step 7: Tie a knot in the back to finish off the headband and you're done!

Hope you enjoyed this craft and your day off from school/work today! 

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day, and happy crafting!
