Serenity Smocked Headband – A Brightly Headband
Another wonderful creation of Kendra Nitta from the Knitpicks design team. This Serenity Smocked Knit Headband is a perfect addition to your casual outfit when going outside. This also keeps your ear from getting cold as it is wide enough to cover them.
In addition, this is an ideal project for our intermediate-skilled knitters to work on.
The headband is available in two different sizes. Once finished, the circumference measures 15 and 18 inches and at its widest point measures 3 and 4 inches in width. That’s about 38.1 and 45.72 cm in circumference and in width 7.62 and 10.16 cm if you prefer to use the metric system.
To make this pattern, you will need an Alpaca Cloud DK Yarn, a yarn that is perfect next to the skin. This yarn is soft, light, and amazingly warm. It’s spun from 100% baby alpaca fibers that provide smoothness and are good to feel next to the skin. This is great for making garments, accessories, and blankets.
You will also need a US size 5 DPN or straight or circular knitting needles. That’s approximately 3.75 mm if you prefer to use the metric measurement.
To work this pattern, you will need to make the kfb or the Bar Increase. It’s a simple, left-leaning increase method. If you like to learn how to do this, you can check out our fully illustrated tutorial for making the kfb. You can find the tutorial here: Learn How to Make a KFB or Bar Increase.
Finally, working the pattern also requires you to make the SSK. The ssk is a Basic Decrease technique that slants to the left. If you like to learn how to do this, you can check out our fully illustrated, step-by-step tutorial for this technique. You can find it here: Basic Left-Slanting Decrease (SSK).
