  • Step 1

    First make the headband:
    Cast on 11 stitches. Work every row the same:

    *k1 p1* to last stitch, k1.

    Keep going until your headband is around 18'' long. Bind off and sew the short sides together to make a loop.

    Now make the "knot" part for the front:

    Cast on 7 stitches. Again, work every row the same:
    *k1 p1 * to last stitch, k1.

    Keep going until the "knot" is 5'' long.

    Now comes the (slightly) trick bit. Wrap the 5'' "knot" around the headband (preferably covering the headband seam) and sew its shorter ends together.

    Weave in any loose ends.
