Pumpkin Twist Headband (aka Mock cabled headband)
I made this headband this weekend. I only had a small ball of this pumkin orange yarn and I REALLY like it, so figured I'd give this headband a try. I changed it a bit in that I made ties on the ends of it so that my daughter and I can share it. I like the wide headbands that most would call ear warmers, for me they're "curl tamers", heh heh! I never wore headbands until I started knitting them for myself and they actually fit!

Very nice! Great way to use up that little bit of yarn you love I love the look of wide headbands - wish I could wear them...they tend to slide off my head :(

Very nice job! Looks good and I agree it could double as an ear warmer!

I was having that problem until I started making them narrower (or, as in this case, with i-cord ties) at the back. They stay on much better!!

I read something on a pattern that mentioned using puff paint on the inside of a headband like this to help it stay on. Worth a try!
