In looking at this, it does not really look like a cable pattern. But it is, and an easy cable pattern at that! Uses thick worsted weight yarns. A bulky yarn works well too. It works up so easily and fast. Headbands are quite the fashion now, so get going and knit up some in your favorite colors! Add a purchased bow or ribbon and you have a complete set. Uses knitting needles US # 11, and this size will fits most heads. This is a cute Ski band, headband too!
