Looking at the wonderful old cable patterns with deep texture inspired me to make this collection of three cozy cable headbands for you.
These headbands can be used as ear warmers as well.
I live in Vancouver, Canada where the winters can be rainy and cold as the temperature drops down to around zero on some chilly evenings.
What You Will Need
Vanna’s’ Choice or similar  weight yarn, similar to double knitting yarn (DK).
One ball in colourway beige – 123 (cream) or another colour of your choice. One 100g ball will make three headbands.
Crochet hook 4.25mm.
Your label (optional).
This pattern uses US crochet stitch notation.
Double Crochet (dc)
This means that a double crochet (dc) is made as follows:
Yarn over, and insert the hook into the stitch, or gap, pull through (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on your hook (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through the last two loops on your hook. Only one loop remains on your hook and the double crochet stitch is complete.
Headband measures, width 8 cm (3 inches) x folded length 24 cm (9½ inches).
Gauge / Tension
14 stitches and 7 rows to 8 cm (3 inches) x 8 cm (3 inches).
