You Will Need
K2tog = knit 2 stitches together
Using two double point needles, cast on 24 stitches. Knit in seed stich (also called moss stitch) till piece measures 12 inches. I always slip the first stitch of each row to keep the edge even.
Weave in the first tail of yarn.
Braid the three “legs” of the headband till there’s about 2 inches left at the ends. Pin the three ends to the beginning of the piece, creating the headband shape. Make sure the ends overlap the beginning of the piece so there’s a good amount of space for the size of your buttons.
Pin the braid in place. With the darning needle, secure each end in place using the tails from the “legs.”
Turn headband inside out. With needle and thread, whipstitch parts of the braid so the “legs” are secure and don’t move or twist apart when stretched.
Sew on your buttons.
