Welcome to Day 14 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

We have one new cable stitch today mixed with a few old one’s that give us this beautiful herringbone lattice stitch. I love the width of this headband. Perfect for wearing with a messy bun!


Materials:

Size US 11 {8mm} Knitting Needles
Approximately 95 Yards {87m} of a Bulky Yarn
{I used Serenity Chunky by Premier}
Cable Needle


Notes:

The CO edge is the width.
You can use any category of yarn you’d like, just keep in mind that the thinner the yarn, the narrower your headband.
