Here it is! The Astrid Headband created using the cable stitch from the tutorial I posted in last Saturday’s Stitch Explorers! The Astrid Headband is named after the stars of course, and it means gorgeous goddess, which is what you will look like wearing it!
The video for the cable stitch is here if you need help working through it, but the full written pattern is below. It is very easy to follow and just a one row repeat, which makes it a fast day project. It probably takes around 30 minutes to make one of these, and uses less than 1/2 a skein of yarn. I made two and still have yarn left over!
If you like to learn new stitches, check out my Saturday Stitch Explorers series! I try to upload one every week! There is always a full video tutorial to accompany the written patterns too. :).
