braided

So, like many of you, I have been perusing Anthro's new looks for fall '10. And I stopped in my tracks when I saw this particular photo. Dude. A knitted/braided headwrap.
And then, as I was skimming through my Google Reader, I happened upon more braidy wonders at one of my favorite blogs, Knight Cat.
And, so you know I immediately thought 'I need to knit something like that.' And so I experimented with cables and braiding and what-not.
And came up with this pattern, which you can download for free ... Braided on Ravelry. For you! Knit away! You'll surely find a zillion occasions to wear this rad ear-warmer/headband when things get chilly in your neck of the woods.

  5. I just stumbled onto your blog and it's sooo funny- I literally just made this about a week ago! Fell in love with it on Anthropologie's site. Mine turned out too stretchy though, so I'm going to have to shrink it in the wash I think.

  7. Cable pattern is to repeated 4 times. Is that Row 1, repeated 4 times or do Rows 1-12, then repeat them 4 times?

    I'm a new knitter, still learning. Thanks.
    Love the pattern.

  11. Weird! So sorry – this was from last year and the link must have gotten messed up. It should be fixed now.

  13. Hi there! I'm loving this head wrap, but I have major issues with knitting the old fashioned way. Do you have any suggestions on converting this pattern to a loom? I'm sure thats considered cheating, but I'm just horrible with trying to handle 2 needles!

  19. The same thing happened to me - I keep being sent to a site that charges for the pattern. I know this is from a couple years ago but I would love it if you could post the pattern again. Want to make it for Christmas.

  21. Hi there! I have made many of these headbands as gifts using your pattern, just wondering if it's okay that I sell them at a local craft sale? I will have a sign posted of where to find your pattern at. Please let me know! Thanks :)
