A Flower Headband is super-cute, right?
Just in time for spring Denice Johnson has created the Quick Knit Flower Headband using her Small Quick Knit Flower pattern. We are re-publishing with additional steps to make this cute Quick Knit Flower Headband . Thanks Denice! -Kristen Mangus
Quick Knit Flower Headband
Designed by Denice Johnson
The Quick Knit Flower Headband is another cute way to use the Small Quick Knit Flower
12 peg round loom
medium weight in any colour
knitting tool, tapestry needle, accent button
K-Knit stitch (Use flat or u-knit stitch)
use one strand throughout the entire project; pattern is worked in the round
Gathered Bind Off
Make a total of 5 flowers
Drawstring cast on 12 pegs, work in the round
Rounds 1-5: knit to the end of round
Round 6: knit peg 1, knit peg 2, place the stitch from peg 2 on peg 1 and knit over
place yarn over peg 2, knit peg 3, knit peg 4, place the stitch from peg 4 on
peg 3 knit over. Repeat for the remainder of the row.
Rounds 7-11: knit to the end of round
Using gathered bind off, bind off all pegs.
Give the flower a little tug at picot edges.
Choose which side will be face side up and tie ends on opposite end. Leave a 4″ tail for tying onto band.
Make an i-cord on two pegs using one strand of yarn work for 30″or desired length. Knot ends of cord but do not attach ends to each other. You will be tying i-cord in a bow as you wear it.
Tie on the five flowers to the i-cord starting 3rd flower in the center of the cord and place 2 flowers on either side evenly.
Sew on accent buttons as desired.
(Note from Kristen, start and finish i-cord with a button or an extra flower so when the string dangles it’s decorative; make i-cord longer for longer hair as needed or desired)
We hope you enjoyed the Quick Knit Flower Headband for the loom. Be sure to post a photo on social media and tag @GoodKnitKisses to spread the loomy love!
Happy Looming!! -Kristen
Change to video: Cast on 12 pegs instead of 24; knit 5 rows instead of 6; work row 6 like row 7 in video; knit 5 more rows not 6. Video does not include how to make the smaller version or i-cord.
