This class will be available to view March 30, 2023.

When it comes to knit projects, headbands are relatively quick to knit and are, as Faith's mom calls her when she's being helpful, "useful as well as decorative." In this in-depth class, Creativebug staff artist Faith Hale knits three headbands, one in a rib stitch finished with a twist, one featuring honeycomb cables, and a delicate lace pattern that ties in the back. Along the way you'll learn special techniques like seaming, working an i-cord, a provisional cast-on, and reading a lace chart. Whether to rescue a bad hair day or provide a touch of extra warmth, knitting these headbands are a quick way to learn new skills and the results are sweet and stylish.
