Do the Twist Headband Kit

The Do the Twist Headband by Juliana Lustenader is a sweet and simple project, perfect for beginners looking to expand their knitting skills! Use up that random skein of worsted or aran weight in your stash to make this warm and stylish accessory.

This headband is knit in the round to create a tube with a large cabled twist in the middle. The CO and BO edges are essentially the back “seam” of the headband:
If using the Longtail CO, the headband will be invisibly seamed using the Mattress Stitch. (Beginner)
If using the Provisional CO, the headband will be invisibly seamed by grafting together the live sts of the CO and BO edges using the Kitchener Stitch. (Advanced)

SIZES:
Circumference: 20 (22, 24)” / 51 (56, 61) cm final circumference.
Width: 3” / 7.5 cm all sizes.
To guarantee the best fit, measure the wearer’s head circumference and follow instructions for the size closest to that measurement. The headband is designed to be worn at an angle, placing the twist in the middle of the forehead so the back of the headband sits at the base of the head where it meets the neck, covering the ears on both sides.
Sample size: 22” on an adult female.

GAUGE: 
21 sts x 24 rounds = 4”/10 cm in Stockinette in the round after blocking.

SKILLS NEEDED:
Provisional Cast On (crocheted method)
Kitchener Stitch
Mattress Stich (if not using Provisional Cast On and Kitchener Stitch)
Knitting in the round
Cable Knitting
Instructions for all necessary skills are included in pattern.
