Chunky Cabled Headband Crochet Pattern

There's not many things better than being able to hand a little brown paper bag to a friend, and watch as they excitedly open it and admire the heartfelt gift inside.
Recently I've been quite the busy little bumblebee, making a variety of different gifts for all my lovely friends and family. So far I've crocheted a couple of cowls, a few headbands and even made a pair of earrings!
In fact, this headband below is the latest DIY gift I've given away. It was created especially for a friend of mine that continuously inspires me to be more creative with her stunning sketches and astounding artwork!
What are some of your favourite gifts to create?


What You'll Need
6.00mm Crochet Hook
100g Bulky Yarn{12ply}
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Finished Size 
This headband fits all sizes
{Easily adjustable, as explained in pattern}


Taking your yarn and 6.00mm crochet hook, start of by making a Slip Knot. Then crochet 8 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every chain across. You should have 8 half double crochets now.
Row 2~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Front Post Double Crochet into the next 6 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last stitch.
Row 3~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Back Post Double Crochet into the next 6 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last stitch.
Row 4~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Cable Stitch into the next 6 stitches. {Note: I have an easy video tutorial below on how to crochet the cable stitch.} Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last stitch.



Row 5~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Back Post Double Crochet into the next 6 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last stitch.
Row 6~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Front Post Double Crochet into the next 6 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last stitch.

 
Row 7~ Repeat row 5.
Row 8~ Repeat row 4.
Row 11 - 34~ Repeat rows 5 - 8 six times. {Note: You can either add or take away a couple sets of rows 5 - 8, depending on your head's circumference.}
Row 35~ Repeat row 5.
Row 36~ Repeat row 6.

When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the headband together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together. Once the band is slip stitched together fold the slip stitched part towards the inside.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.


Hope you all enjoyed this cable stitch pattern!

  1. Followed instructions to the letter and tried several times and mine came out nothing like it.

    1. I had the same issue. I think it's row 5 that's critical. When you get to row 5, you go into the back posts -- you have to do the outside three that angle to the left first, then go under and pick up the 3 in the back. If you try working the stitches right to left it isn't right.
