Maize is a free headband pattern with beautiful, bold cables. Of all the textured stitches out there, this one is by far my favorite. For extra warmth, I plan to line this headband with some soft grey fleece.
For this headband, I used Knit Picks Brava Bulky in Cobblestone Heather. This is one of my go-to bulky yarns to use as it’s incredibly soft, has a nice sheen and is very affordable. A 100g ball is only $1.99. Plus, it comes in thirty different colors, including three shades of grey (my fave color).
