Free, Quick and Easy Knitted Head Warmer Pattern – Ideal for Beginners!

Knitted Head warmerAs promised – here is a super quick and easy knitted head warmer pattern. Like my recent crochet headband pattern I’m using Patons Fab Big Super Chunky Yarn  – when knitted on 10mm needles a 8 stitch width row gives you a 10cm wide piece of fabric.

Cast on 35 stitches.

  1. Hi really quick and easy to make but I have a big head and need to try again. Also the way I fasted off means there is no stretch in that side of the head band…is there a special stretchy way to cast off? Thanks

    • I normally cast off quite loosely if I need it to stretch a little. Otherwise if you are after a stretchy headband there’s a good free pattern by The Lovely Crow on the Ravelry site, I think I mentioned it in my last cuff post.
