This one not a cable, but actually is braided.

Knitty's Coronet (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTcoronet.html) is knit by making a cabled band first, then picking up stitches to knit the hat....you could totally use those instructions and just knit the band :thumbsup:

Knit Picks used to have a free pattern available on their website for a cabled pocket shawl and matching cable headband, but I can't find it now (pattern # 50486). It was using their bulky weight "Sierra" yarn (70% wool, 30% alpaca, 110 yards per skein).

I did save a copy of this pattern; since it was free, I think it would be okay to pass it along. If you're interested, pm me and I'll e-mail you the directions for the headband. The only problem is that I don't know how much yarn you'll need for the headband because the yarn requirements are given for both the shawl and headband together (8 hanks total).

That is exactly the kind of cable I was looking for.:thumbsup: I'm sure that will work great. Thanks:hug:

Great idea, Julie. When I made Coronet as a gift for my mother, I tried on the band part myself to see how it would look/fit just as a headband, and thought it would be great! I seriously considered keeping it :aww:, but it was for my mother! It fit well and was warm. Not as large as most winter headbands, but still very nice and stylish.
