Loom Knit Headband Scarf
The headband scarf pattern is an experiment I’m hoping you guys can appreciate. It’s the solution to those bad hair days without needing to resort to the messy bun look. It’s an ear warmer attached to an open hat – but it’s not a cap. I know it’s all sounds crazy. Well you get you chance to let me know what you think by adding your questions and comments on the bottom of the page.
There are decreases but not to worry they’re not difficult at all because as always there is a step by step video for beginners and us visual learners.
The pattern is pretty simple once you get the hang of the decreases. Look for the pattern notes for the technique. Stitches needed are: U-wrap (UW) , e-Wrap, Purl

Wrap every peg.
Knit 1 row using the U-wrap knit stitch

Bring up the First Row. Remount the loops onto the loom.
Knit-off all the pegs.
Note: Knit FLAT (back and for not in the round) for this part of the pattern. Slip (skip) the first stitch when you turn for a new row. You are using the Single e-Wrap stitch (EW)
Row 1: EW Knit 20 pegs then Decrease (move loop from peg 19 to 18 and peg 20 to 19).
Row 2: Knit and Purl peg 18 then Knit 38 pegs then Decrease ( move loop from peg 40 to 39 and peg 41 to peg 40)
Row 3: Knit and Purl peg 39 then Knit 37 peg then Decrease
Continue the process until you are left with 2 or 3 pegs with loops. Move all the loops to 1 peg and knit off.
NOTE ABOUT DECREASES:
When you finish a row turn direction – you will move the 2nd to last loop over 1 peg then the last loop over 1 peg. Knit the peg with 2 loops then purl that same peg. Now you are ready to knit your row.
Wrap and knit the last peg.
