It's that time of year here in Minnesota!

It's that time of year here in Minnesota, it's coming-the cold, deary and darkness.  Although it's been a lovely fall, it's easy for me to get into a funk unless I have projects lined up to keep my mind busy.  What better way to stay out of this funk is quick and easy projects, a headband turbin.  So let's use that stash you've been holding onto forever!  Think out of the box, use a couple of strands of different yarns and create something new and wonderful.  So for this blog post I have linked to several quick and easy patterns to machine knit your headband.  I have knit these on my bulky machine and also my standard gauge.   I guarantee, no two will be alot.  And I forgot to say, they are Free!

Give them a try and enjoy that time stuck indoors.  I would love to see your finished creations.

1. Headband with a Twist

This headband is knit back and forth in the English rib, which is very warm and comfortable to wear. It has a twist in the middle - not only this looks classy, but it’s also a clever way to hide the seam.

2.  This headband is knitted as a simple rectangle; the knot or twist is created with a special seaming technique. This is a good pattern to use up scraps of yarn. Instructions for standard, midgauge, and bulky machines are included, and there are many pictures showing the construction of the knot.
