The pattern includes three different cable patterns: Headband 1 = narrow round cables. Headband 2 = plaited cables. Headband 3 = expanding cables.
These Headbands are quick to knit and great for using up left over yarn. They also make a fantastic project for someone who is new to cable knitting. It's a chance to practice working cables without having a lot of stitches in each row.
