Welcome to Day 9 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

This video is a bit long, so grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started on this Wavy Bobble headband. This works up quick in super bulky yarn!


Materials:

Size US 15 {10mm} Knitting Needles
Approximately 75 Yards {68m} of a Super Bulky Yarn
{I used Ora an Italian Story by Red Heart}
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.
