Yukon Headband, a Free Knitting Pattern for Fall and Football Season

Yukon Headband, a free knitting pattern for fall and football season, from Banana Moon Studio

Yukon Headband is a free knitting pattern perfect for fall and football season! It is a good width to cover your ears when the temperatures get a little cool. It is knit in the beautiful basketweave stitch! It has such interesting texture, but it really isn’t difficult. I’ve made mine in the color of both my highschool and college alma maters. You can make yours in team colors to wear to football games, but of course, you can make it in any color you like and wear it whenever you want!

I made this headband in Berroco Lustra, and sadly, this yarn has been discontinued, but I suggest Cascade 220 Superwash Merino in it’s place. This yarn is about as close to the same weight as you can get, it’s soft, and comes in a lot of colors! See all the colors here.

The pattern is written in just one size that will stretch to fit most adults. You want your headband to be 2 to 6″ [5 to 15 cm] smaller around than the head of the recipient. You can easily adjust the circumference of the headband by adding or subtracting multiples of 8 stitches from your cast on.

Look below for the free pattern!

If you know someone else that would like to have this pattern, please direct them to my website! Please do not make digital or paper copies for others! Thank you!
