I love a small project for learning a new technique. This headband is perfect for learning two color brioche rib in the round. Only one color is worked per round. The outside features the light yarn; the inside features the dark. This quick knit is squishy and warm, and will keep your ears toasty!

Headband is 18” around, which easily stretches to fit my 23” head. The band is 3.5 inches tall.

You’ll need 50 yards of your dark color, and 40 yards of your light color. It’s worked on a 16 inch circular needle.

Have fun, and enjoy the zen!

Update: I just updated this pattern July 2020. I’ve streamlined that tricky beginning/end of round, and made new video tutorials to go with it. Have fun!

Thanks to test knitter Tami Hawes!
