lulu's headscarf

My little girl has crazy hair that grows from the back forward ala Donald Trump.  It's a constant battle to control the curls and in summer the best solution is an easy head scarf.  I worked this one up in an afternoon in some of our new colors from Done Roving for the Fourth of July.   She's worn it every day so I'll need to quickly make up a few more!


This pattern makes a headscarf big enough to fit an adult size head.  I attached a button to one side and use the eyelet edging as the button hole so the fit can be adjusted.

lulu's headscarf pattern:

cast on 3

set up row: k1, m1l, p1, m1r, k1

row 1: k1, yo ,k to center stitch, yo, k, yo, knit to last stitch, yo, k1

row 2: purl

repeat row 1 and 2 until you have 129 stitches on your needle. 

change to contrast color

picot edging:

knit one stitch to attach contrast color

*slip stitch to lefthand needle, cast on 2 stitches and bind off 4 stitches; repeat from * until all live stitches are bound off.

pick-up stitches along the open edge and continue picot edging.

weave in ends and block.

sew on button and enjoy!
