Lea’s Headband

So this was part of a Christmas where I was working part time and spent a lot of the weeks before making gifts. One of them was a knitted headband with a thread of ribbon and a rosette. In doing this I managed to teach headband1myself how to cable knit (promptly forgot how to by the following new year!) – using natural mixed fibre wool. The dark purple ribbon, that’s threaded under the cables, was recovered from some packaging, and the purple and cream base of the rosette was in some heritage ribbons, as was the rosette. It worked really surprisingly well, and was, apparently, warm and toasty!
