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

It’s the last day, so let’s use those new cable skills! Today’s stitch is a 24 row repeat, by the end of this headband you’ll be confident in your twist and cable skills. :)

Materials:

  • Size US 11 {8mm} Knitting Needles
  • Approximately 75 Yards {68m} of a Super Bulky Yarn
  • {I used Wool Ease Thick & Quick, Lion Brand}
  • 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.
