Braided headband knit 2018

Braided headbands I had seen many times before, but never really had a look how to make one yourself. But it was not as difficult as expected. In itself, it is quite easy to knit it – so also a great project for beginners! It is a real eye-catcher and super fluffy-warm. So: Ran to the knitting needles, my dears!. Inspiration directly from everyday life. In the cold season, I always walk very carefully through the streets and look at heads: heads with caps, with headbands, with knitted, crocheted, with many different colors and patterns. What else I rummage on the net, I see so casually and let me be inspired. Offline surfing or analog inspiration search, so to speak. And I really have to say: In the last few years, knitted and crocheted hats and headbands are so much in vogue that I have seen countless models that I would like to tackle in a modified form.When curiosity wins I have been thinking for some time how well the braided headbands work, which I have often admired on other minds. First I thought about using braided headband knit 2018 a triple plait as in a cable pattern. But then I strayed again. Somehow it had to be possible to do it the usual way and braid it like a braid.Lisitipp in advance: It is important that you take a fluffy, soft wool. It must not be too rigid, so that the strands can be braided later and they fit snugly together. My yarn has a small mohair content, which I have already used for my lace scarf with ajour pattern. It is very cuddly and has volume. What you need: 100g wool with mohair content (for example, this one from fair alpaca) three knitting needles (strength 3) a darning needle and a pair of scissors.And this is how it works. The headband is very easy to knit. It is perfect as a beginner project, since you only have to master the absolute knitting basics: Stitches for knitting, Knit right and left stitches with edge stitch. Look like again in my instructions to purely. For the headband you now prepare (as for a braid braid) three equal long strands.For this purpose you hit with the yarn 12 stitches, which you then knit loosely in back and forth rows. Loose, because the yarn just needs a little “leeway”. It’s so fluffy and has so many fine threads of yarn sticking out in all directions – that would be lost in too tight knitting and the strand would become solid and immobile. So, knit tenderly, you knit happily in back and forth rows until you count a total of 116 rows. I always do this on the edge stitches: Here are 58 edge stitches (because you calculate 2 rows per edge stitch). Do not chain the first finished strand, just leave it on the needle and cut off the thread with about 10 cm clearance. Now pick up the third knitting needle, and start with the second strand. Once the second one is finished, lift it over to the knitting needle of the first strand. With the third strand you do it the same way, so that all three are next to each other.

Then you begin with the braiding: First lay the strand on the right outside over the middle, then the leftmost over the now in the middle and so on. It is important that you start with the right outer strand. Lisitipp: You may already have wondered why the individual strands are so long. Quite simply because they lose their length by weaving, since they do not wind around your head later, but in serpentine lines, into which they are bent by braiding. You should not braid too hard so that the wool retains its volume and the headband stays nice and fluffy. Just as important as starting with the right above is to stop at the bottom left: So the last braiding step must be to put the left strand over the middle. You’ll see why With one of the knitting needles, you now roughly thread the lower ends of the plaited piece of knitting, as they come in turn: right outside, middle (that is the strand you last laid from the left in the middle) and left outside. Now you have You have a long plaited piece of knitting on both sides of knitting needles. Lisitipp: Put it on your head to see if it fits. My head circumference is 55 cm, maybe you need for your head a little less stitches. Now it’s time to stitch together: Put the two ends together on the left side (so the “nice” side is inside). Then you take the darning needle and a long piece of yarn, stitching the strands together stitch by stitch exactly as they are opposite each other. It is important that you work very precisely here. The closer you connect each strand to the opposite, the more invisible the seams will be later. When you’re done and you’re done sewing it together, it looks like the braided strands have no seams. You can see them down here in the picture only with a practiced eye. Therefore, it is also important that you start with the right strand and stop with the left: Otherwise, it does not fit for sewing together. Between the places in the middle where the strands cross each other, you can loose the “gaps” Sew together on the inside. Then the headband retains its shape when donning and it can not open up at these points. This stitching does not have to be very accurate – if you use the same yarn as for knitting, you will hardly see it anyway. Recommendation: If the headband turns out to be a bit too thick and you would like to have it a little more close to the head, you can do it a little “iron flat”. To do this, it is best to use a dishcloth which you put over the wool so as not to expose it to direct heat. It should be damped only a little – you also have to be careful: If the yarn has a certain amount of synthetic it may be that it “melts” you at too high a temperature. In the beginning I found the headband somehow turban-like, but me got used to the slightly different look and wear it very much.
