Easy Lacy Headband In Imitation Embroidery Stitch Pattern

Description: A lacy headband knitting pattern for girls and women.  You can customize the size to fit your need.  This one shows in the picture is knitted with medium worsted weight yarn over sized US #8 needle (5mm). The width measured approximately 3.5 inches. If you preferred narrower band, you may choose smaller gauge yarn and needle.

This easy lacy headband is perfect for beginner who wants to learn lace knitting.  Don't be intimidated by the name "imitation embroidery stitch pattern".  It is actually quite easy to knit once you get used to these new stitches.  The stitches include in this easy lacy headband are as follower;

knit, purl, slip 1 (sl 1), pass over (psso), yarn over (yo), and knit 2 together (k2tog).


1. 1 ball of medium worsted weight yarn of your choice (I used Encore by Plymouth Yarn)

2. A pair of straight knitting needle size US # 8 (5mm)

3. A row counter (experience knitter many not need this)

4. Tapestry needle


Note: Use a row counter to help keep track of your rows if you're a beginner.  If you don't have a row counter, you can just jot it down on a piece of paper.  When working sl 1, make it knitwise.

Cast on (CO) 17 sts.

Row 1 (right side): K 5, sl 1 , k1, psso, yo, k 3, yo, k2tog, k 5.

Row 2 (wrong side): K 5, P 7, k5.

Row 3: K 5, k 2, yo, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yo, k 2, k5.

Row 4: As row 2.

Repeat these 4 rows until desired length.  Make it a little smaller than actual head circumference because it will stretch out a little. For example, if your head size is 22 inches in circumference, you would  make it about 20-21 inches long.  Here is a good head size chart just for your reference in case you want to knit it as a gift.

Bind off (BO) all sts.  Cut yarn leaving about 20 inches tail.

Using tapestry needle and the tail to sew both ends together.  Trim off excess yarn and you're done!
