How to Make a Headband: 20 + Free Knitting Patterns

By: Samantha McVeigh, Editor, AllFreeKnitting

Bad hair day? Help your hair behave with an adorable and stylish headband. In our collection, How to Make a Headband: 20 + Free Knitting Patterns, holds some of our favorite headband knitting patterns that you are going to adore. Most people think that beginner knitting patterns have to be in the form of scarves or hats, but that is not the case. Headbands are great quick knit easy patterns that you can pull off even if you are just learning how to knit. Because they are so fast, headbands are fantastic last minute homemade gifts to make for your friends and family.

Hats are not always the best winter accessory. They keep your ears warm, but they mess up your hair and cause it to fill with static electricity so that you resemble Albert Einstein for half of the day. Headbands help with that problem by eliminating the top covering over your head. Besides that, they look cute and fashionable on you as you go about your busy day. Keep a couple by your door and throw them on for a lovely, chic and put together look in seconds. Whether you have a fondness for flowers, bows, or cable knitting, we have plenty of patterns you are going to adore.  So take a look at these incredible easy knitting patterns and find one or two to go with your favorite outfits. We know you'll love wearing them whenever you get the chance.
