Description: 

This pattern is a quick knit and should be added to your go to patterns for a gift knitting. In our club adaptation, instead of binding off at the end of the headband pattern, we will change yarns and begin knitting the cashmere lining while simultaneously creating a finished edge. This is the same technique used to create a cashmere lined collar for a bottom up sweater. To create the same finished cashmere edge at the beginning of the headband, we utilize a provisional cast on. This technique is helpful for adding linings to hat brims or cuffs. A cashmere lining can be knitted in stockinette in a loose gauge to be stretchy and thin. Once the desired length is achieved, simply bind off loosely and blind stitch the edge to the inside of the garment with a tapestry needle. Because our headband has two visible edges, we will be joining the ends together with the Kitchener stitch. Yes, this will be the longest Kitchener stitch you have ever done. I highly reccommend doing this step in one sitting, in a quiet place, where no one will laugh at you when you are repeating the “knit, knit, off, purl, purl, off” steps out loud. The end result is so worth it!
