Lotus Headband - FREE Pattern

This headband was the first pattern I ever designed and over a Christmas season I cranked out far too many that the pattern is literally memory to my hands! I love it so much even to this day, the texture of cables is perfect.


I used Bernat Softee Chunky (100% Acrylic) yarn however any category 6 yarn would work. The gauge is forgiving and not crucial in this design. Check out all the colour choices HERE.


This is worked as a flat long piece that is seamed at the end. The best part is the seam is hidden perfectly by the small gathering piece that is knit separately. An effortless pattern created with US 11 needles and superbulky weight yarn. It's a simple design that can be made in an evening as a last minute gift.



I hope you find everything helpful and that you enjoy working up this design.  I’m so grateful for your feedback and truly appreciate every like, share, and comment!
