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?
