Trinity's Pointelle lace headband

Trinity's Pointelle Lace Headband

I made this headband for my daughter, I have seen alot of different patterns for headbands but not really anything that just jumped out and said make me... make me. So, I decided to design my own pattern and I thought what the heck I'll just share the pattern for anyone who would like to make one.





Size:Toddler
15" long before sewing ends together

Yarn: Fleece artist in pale pink colorway
needles: size 1 addi turbo circulars or you may use double pointed needels or straits if you choose.
Guauge: 9sts= 1" in stockinette stich. although gauge is not crucial to the outcome of the headband going up or down in needle size will result in smaller or larger headband.

CO 10 sts
knit across for 13 rows

Bind off and graft ends together.

block lightly to stop the curling of the ends but be careful not to stretch it to much.


The lace pattern was modified from the pointelle lace pattern in Vogue Knitting stitchionary volume one.
