If you've ever wanted to learn how to knit brioche, we designed this headband pattern for YOU! Squishy brioche stitches make for a cosy accessory that's as functional as it is stylish - keep your ears toasty warm this season.
Learn to knit brioche on a small, manageable project! The Northwind headband is worked in brioche stitch, worked flat. The headband begins and ends with a stockinette tube. To complete the project you'll twist this tube and graft the ends together. The brioche stitch fans out on either side, almost like a bow.
It's a quick and soothingly repetitive project that calls for only one skein. This means exploring new to you stitches with one simple purchase or even a quick dive into your stash to see what's there. This is fast, small budget knitting at it's best.
24 sts and 27 rows = 4” / 10cm in st st in the rnd with smaller needle.
