Fast to knit with any bulky yarn - I only used about 1/4 of a ball for this! - this would make a great last minute gift. To make a pretty set, try the matching mitts here… Maner pattern by Alexandra Tinsley. Bow Headband pattern by Beth Postelwait. The Leonidas pattern by J. The Leonidas is a hairband inspired by the film 300.

The Leonidas pattern by J

Watching the film, I saw Leonidas was wearing a headband and quickly knitted one up similar to it. I knitted it up in black, as this is the closest to my hair colour, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to your hair colour, any colour will look great, as the headband is inspired by the design, not just the colour :) You can easily knit this up in an evening, while watching 300, of course :) Please note, this is my first cable project I have written into a pattern, so if you do notice any errors, please tell me! Thanks :) Oversized Bow Headband. A few people have asked me to write up a pattern for my bow headband. i had a spare moment today, so here it is!

Oversized Bow Headband

This simple bow is knit in a tight gauge, so it houses deep creases and holds its shape. the bow is attached to an icord, and can be worn as a headband, bracelet or necklace. or knit the bow by itself and attach it to shirts, hair clips, or whatever else you can think of! Materials:yarn: a small amount of bristol yarn gallery buckingham in black. but any DK weight yarn will do. needles: US2 / 2.75 mm double pointed needlesgauge: 24 sts / 40 rows = 4 inches in stockinette tools: a tapestry or yarn needle an elastic hair band (for the i cord) finished measurements: bow: 4 inches wide, 5 inches longi cord: 16 inches, plus elastic band. notes: i used dk weight yarn, but feel free to use worsted on US3 needles. just be sure to get a tight gauge!

To make the bow: cast on 24 sts. row one: knit row two: slip 1, purl all row three: slip 1, knit all cast off. Quick I-Cord Headband. I am growing my hair a bit longer, and have taken to putting it in a short ponytail when busy working on my stuff.

Quick I-Cord Headband

I like the look of those skinny headbands, especially when worn in twos or threes. I bought some in the past but found they were SO tight, they slipped back and hurt my head! So I dove into my stash and found some leftover Esprit (cotton with lycra stretch) in black. The pattern is easy: Yarn: stretchy worsted weight (suggested knit on 4.5mm needles) Needles: two 4mm *double point needles* (or one size smaller to make a tight cord that still stretches) Cast on 4 stitches: Knit across row. Repeat I-Cord stitch until the length is about one inch short of length to go around head (without stretching) then bind off and stitch ends together. I will make a few more of these, in several colours.
