Debbie Headband Pattern

Created by: Deann

Debbie is a 1950’s inspired headband that can be worn different ways. Either with the knot tied at the top or at the bottom or even off center. I especially like the leaf shaped tips sticking up at the top.

Knit flat, using very simple cabling to achieve the look. Debbie is a great pattern for those wanting to try their hand at cables for the first time, or for anyone wanting to add a bit of fun to their wardrobe.

Pearls, although optional, add glamour to an already pretty design, use any beads that match your yarn choice.
