Cable Headband Question
Hi everyone. This is my first post, and I have a question about working with cables (I think). A friend of mine wants a headband that looks like it basically has one big cable in the front. My question is, what is the easiest way to knit this?

One cable all the way around? CO X sts (whatever you need for the cable, plus sts on both sides of it) knit to the length you need and join the ends together. If you use a provisional cast on or use a different yarn for the CO and take it out when you're done, then don't BO you can graft the ends together or do a 3 needle BO to join the ends.

That is a picture of the piece if that helps. I wanted to post it right away but I was informed I had to have two posts first. LOL

That's not a cable exactly, it's just crossed over, turban style. If you were to search for 'turban headband' you'd probably find a few patterns.

I just found this one last night and knitted it up. It's a very easy cable knit and goes fast.

Cable Headband
So could anyone post some advice about that cable (turban-like) headband (the gray one that another user previously posted)? I was hoping to make a similar one, but after absolutely scouring the internet I have been unable to find instructions.

I was following a pattern and looked up the meaning of the symbols, but I am a relatively new knitter so it's pretty vague to me. I would post it here but I need at least two posts before I can post a URL.
