With the leftover yarn from the cabled hat I made, I tried out a more complex cable pattern and made this warm headband. I've enjoyed learning how to make cables - it makes the project more interesting to work on, but it's just knit stitches so it doesn't slow me down too much (as lots of ssk or psso might). I used this pattern but I wasn't happy with how the edges were curling up, so I used this pattern's edging. I've gotten so attached to my cabled hat that I'm not sure this headband will get much wear - perhaps I'll give it to a friend?

When I had finished the cabled hat for my sister, I made the mistake (or did I?) of wearing it out a couple times. It was just so warm, and my husband was just so complimentary of it, that I decided to make one for myself, too. I didn't finish it until just AFTER my family went back home, so my sis and I never had matching hats during the trip. It's probably better that way. Read on for more details and photos.
