Thrummed Headband Knitting Pattern

Brenda Forbes

knit headband

Materials:

Small amount of worsted weight yarn
Roving
Double point needles appropriate to yarn

Gauge:

20 sts=4"

Instructions:

Using provisional cast on and waste yarn, CO 100 sts. Divide over 4 needles and join.
Change to project yarn. Knit in k2, p2 rib for 1½", increasing 5 st evenly across last round.
Knit 2 rounds even.

Begin thrum pattern

*Row 1: Knit a thrum into every third st, beginning with the first st on needle 1.
Row 2: Knit, ensuring you knit into the back of every thrummed st
Rows 3 & 4: Knit

Repeat from row 1. Work this for 3 inches (about 5 pattern repeats), decreasing 5 st evenly across last row.

Work k2, p2 ribbing for 1½". Kitchener stitch the edges of the ribbing together. This will enclose the thrums, and also give a lot of stretch to the headband. Before seaming, pull on the tails of the thrums, to set them in tight and even them out.
