Instant Digital Download

Knitting pattern PDF: This Aran cable headband works as a hairband or neckwarmer! It knits to any Aran wool, and is seamlessly knit in the round on circular needles to be stretchy, light and cosy. I designed this item based on my own experience as a knitter of Aran knitwear for sale on the Aran Islands. The cabling is not difficult; this would make an ideal first cabling project.

The headband measures 16 inches/40 cm in circumference unworn in the smaller size (teen); and 2 3/4 inches/7 cm in height. The larger size (adult) is 17 inches circumference and 3 inches in height. The pattern PDF includes instructions on modifying the pattern to make it wider in circumference, or higher. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions; I would be happy to help.

If you like the pattern, but don't have the time or knitting skills to make it, I have a selection of headbands already knitted and available for sale in my etsy shop. Please see here:

Care instructions

All of my knitted accessories (except items which have stuffing, like charms or baubles) can be machine-washed on a gentle wool wash at 30 degrees, or hand washed if you prefer. Certain items, such as cafetieres and tea-cosies, have been knitted in a more hard-wearing wool/acrylic mix: these can be washed in a regular machine wash at 40 degrees.
