Emerald Twist


Emerald Twist combines cables with easy colorwork to create a cute headband... with a twist! Using small amounts of fingering-weight yarn in two contrasting colors, this pattern is great for stashbusting: the headband knits up quickly and makes for a great gift.

Emerald Twist is worked in the round from end to end, creating a double thickness of fabric that will keep your ears warm. Provisional cast-on and grafting skills are required. The pattern comes in two variations: with single or double cable twists on the center front. The size of the headband is fully customizable.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Instructions for the colorwork and cable patterns are given as both charts and row-by-row written instructions.
