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!

- 16 Inch Circumference
- 7 Inches Tall
- 1 skein Lion Brand Hometown USA ("Seattle Sea Mist" colorway shown)
- US 15 (10 mm) Straight Needles
- Tapestry Needle
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.
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.

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.
