  1. Thank you so much for the PDF version of the headband. I’m going to my stash of yarn to make one for my granddaughter. Can you please give me an approximate idea for the length for an adult. What size needles and yarn is used. It was a little difficult for me to hear everything . Thanks in advance.

      Hey, thank you so much for commenting.
      Adult Woman
      Head Circumference: 21.5″ – 22.5″ Hat height = 11″

      Adult Man
      Head Circumference: 23″ – 24″ 58.4 cm – 61 cm; Hat height = 11″-11.5″


      Now you are better off using chunky yarn for this project. If you look at the back of the yarn package it will tell you what needle size to use with that certain yarn. In the video I used size nine mm. needles.

      Hope this was helpful. I would love to see your finished project 🙂

      Yours truly,


  2. Hi there, thanks for that awesome tutorial!
    May I ask, what do you mean “this pattern is worked in 9 + 2” if I want to use smaller yarn? I’m fairly new to knitting and don’t know all the terms yet… 🙂

  3. Thanks for the braided headband pattern. I love it! I’m thinking about doing another one with small needles and yarn. Can you explain what “this pattern is worked in 9+2” means?

      So 9 + 2 means that you cast on as long as you want, but doing so in multiples of 9. When you get the the length you want you the add 2 more stitches. These 2 stitches never get worked into the cable stitch and this makes the cables stay in place..

      Hope this helped.


  4. I’m still a little confused. If I cast on 2 multiples of 9 (18+2), can you please tell me exactly how I would work rows 3 and 7?


  5. I made this in an hour last night, thank you very much for the tutorial (I’ve avoided cables up to now but think I’m hooked!)

  6. Thanks a lot for sharing this beautiful headband tutorial. Thanks to your video, I finally learned how to knit braids and I made a great gift for my cousin. I also created a wider version of this headband I shared in my blog and I recommended your great tutorial!
