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.

    Hi Jennifer… I made this into a scarf. How do you block it? I soaked the wool in cold water and now have it wrapped in a towel to dry it out. Tomorrow , I was thinking that I should stretch it out and see if it does not curl on the sides. Your cable looks so nice and straight. Just wondering if you blocked it.
    Thanks,
    Rosina

      Hi Rosina, I didn’t block mine, maybe try a larger needle. I’ve noticed that when my stitches are too tight they tend to curl. It also depends on the type of yarn you use. The yarn I used is 100% acrylic, which doesn’t block very well, so I don’t think blocking it would get the curl out of it anyway. If you made a headband and stretch it when you’re wearing it, then it might not curl while you’re wearing it. :) I hope this helps! Happy knitting! Jennifer
