Columns of stockinette emerge from plush garter stitch to create the unique combination cable on this versatile headband. Requiring just one skein of super bulky weight yarn and an hour of knitting time, this quick knit makes a great gift. Knit it in a neutral to go with anything, or in something bold to add a pop of colour. Daya is worked flat from a provisional cast on and then grafted to create a seamless piece.
