If you’re looking for a quick and easy knitting pattern (that isn’t a scarf), you’re in the right place. Our easy knit headband is perfect for new knitters looking for a project that works up in a few short hours.
This is a great project to start with if you want to learn how to knit on circular needles. Knitting a headband on circulars is probably the easiest project you can make. You’ll also get to practice your knit and purling skills as you work a popular ribbed stitch pattern.
