046 Halo Braid Headband and Collar

A wide headband and matching collar knit in lofty wool will keep you both toasty and stylish. A cabled braid (simpler than it looks!) makes a lovely halo, while seed stitch borders add texture and depth. Two special buttons fasten the collar. At three and a half stitches per inch, the set works up quickly for yourself or as a gift for someone you love. The headband tapers at the back for a comfortable fit.

Only one skein of yarn is needed for the headband, 2 skeins for the collar if they are being made separately. Set shown used less than two skeins total in colorway “Periwinkle”.

Gauge is not critical as long as the pieces are knit to the lengths specified in the pattern. Try a thinner yarn for a more delicate look.
