How To Create A Cinch In A Handmade Headband!



When I shared the Annabelle Lace Headband, some of you asked about the stylish "cinch" in the headband, and how exactly I was able to do it. I am happy to say it is a total cinch! (Sorry, could not resist that one!) It literally takes just a minute to do and makes your headband look super cute!  be sure to scroll down to watch the video too.

To make you headband have a cinch, you'll need your headband (actually handmade or storebought is fine), a tapestry needle and a piece of matching yarn.

Begin by threading your tapestry needle and turn the headband inside out.



Next (opposite of the seam if you happen to have one), weave the tapestry needle in and out all the way across. The more you weave in and out with narrower spaces in between, the more neat looking and cinched it will appear.



When you are finished, it will look kind of like this:



Now remove the tapestry needle and tie in a sturdy knot. Weave in all ends and turn right side out.



All finished and super cute!

Free Knitting Pattern: Annabelle Lace Headband!


Annabelle Lace Headband
By Jennifer Dickerson

The Annabelle Lace Headband is a pretty, cozy, and easy to knit headband that is perfect for cold weather.  This headband is very wide so it is extra warm.  Headbands are perfect if you wear your hair up and you don't want a hat to get in the way.  If you are new to knitting, this is a super easy project too.  Be sure to check out below how to cinch your headband too for a totally different look!

Click button below to add this to you Ravelry queue:


Sizing:

  • 16 Inch Circumference
  • 7 Inches Tall

Materials:

  • 1 skein Lion Brand Hometown USA ("Seattle Sea Mist" colorway shown)
  • US 15 (10 mm) Straight Needles
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors


Instructions:

Note: This headband is very wide (7 inches, if you desire a narrower headband, just be sure to cast on any even number)

CO 16 sts
Row 1 (RS): k1, *yo, k2tog; rep from * to last st, k1
Row 2 (WS): p1, *yo, p2tog; rep from * to last st, p1
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until headband is 16 inches long or desired length.
BO
Break yarn, fasten off, and use one of the yarn tails to seam the headband together with a tapestry needle.  I used the whip stitch for a neat and invisible seam.



Click below to watch a video on how to knit the Annabelle Lace Headband stitch by stitch:




To "cinch" your headband, take a piece of matching yarn approximately 18-24 inches long.  Turn the headband inside out and weave the yarn across.  Pull ends together and tie together very tightly.  Tie in a secure knot and weave in ends. 

Check out this video too on how to make the "cinch" part!
