ADAPT headband

This headband is constructed to be worked in the round combining Stockinette and Reverse Stockinette patterns. It is comprised of large sections reminiscent of buttonhole openings that feel very uncomplicated, yet this simplicity is what allows us to expand this small accessory into its many adaptive ways of wearing it. You can leave it open, fold it differently, and wear it as a wider headband or a cowl. Or use one of the methods of braiding it up, securing it with a button, and enjoy showcasing a large cable in its center. You can find the exact style that goes with your hair and best suits your outfit!

Holidays will soon be here! Are you thinking about crafting gifts for family and friends, gifts to keep them warm through this cold season and for many years to come? This year, we may have to alter our routines and traditions, but the making and giving of hand-crafted gifts will help us embrace the spirit of the season and connect with our family and friends, albeit virtually!

This year especially seems to be the appropriate time to bring you this fun Novel Noel Advent! In this Advent collection, you will receive knitting patterns, for which you will learn several new techniques, some unusual ways of creating cables and cable-looking fabric, while knitting an enjoyable, wearable accessory - a headband. In this collection, you will receive seven mystery headband patterns that you will be able to knit and finish just in time for holiday gifting (or wearing)! Plus a surprise bonus pattern!

The Advent collection will kick off with a design using the thinnest yarn in the collection - sport weight or light DK. The yarn weight will grow each week with a new installment and, in anticipation of Christmas day, will end with a super bulky weight, to make that last-minute gift! You will discover a new technique with each and every single headband. The skill levels for the collection range from Beginner to Advanced Intermediate, but since this is a technique driven advent, there will be visual help in the form of video or photo tutorials included.

With the Novel Noel Advent eBook, you will learn something new, have fun while making it, hopefully make some new knitting friends, and have cabled headbands to wear or gift!
