This adorable knit headband pattern for beginners makes a wonderful first knitting project. Using only the stockinette stitch, you’ll learn to create a cute and cozy knitted headband that works up in a flash!
To make this headband, you’ll work from the back center, then split to work each half of the twisted portion separately. After you twist them, you simply continue knitting until the headband fits your head, and sew it together in a straight seam.
