These colorful headbands are simple to make and great for the beginning knitter!  For the experienced knitter, one can easily be made, start to finish, in less than an hour-and-a-half.  I knitted these for a our pastor's mother.  She asked me if I knew how to knit one day after church.  I said, of course!  She pulled a headband out of her purse and told me she wanted several to give to her family.  Since I have so much yarn around the house, I didn't have any trouble coming up with a variety of colors.  The purple and white ones are children's size, and the others are made according to the size of the one Mrs. Van Den Bos brought to me. 

I had no problem duplicating the pattern - it is very simple.  The entire band is knit using a garter stitch.  Using size eight needles and worsted weight yarn, cast on twelve.  Then knit 18 rows. to shape the ears, increase one stitch at the beginning of each row until there are 25 stitches on the needle.  Knit 2 rows even. Then begin decreasing.  Knit two together at the beginning of each row until there are again 12 stitches.  Knit the front of the band by knitting 50 rows.  Repeat the increasing and decreasing to make the other ear.  Finish the back of the band by knitting 16 rows.  Now cast off and sew the ends together. 

I saved a step by picking up a stitch in the cast on row, knitting it together with the first stitch on my needle, then picking up a stitch on the cast on row, knitting the two together, continuing across all 12 stitches, the tying off the last stitch.  This sounds complicated to the beginner, but if you are an experienced knitter, you should have no trouble.

For the children's size, cast on 11. Then knit 14 rows. to shape the ears, increase one stitch at the beginning of each row until there are 22 stitches on the needle.  Knit 2 rows even. Then begin decreasing.  Knit two together at the beginning of each row until there are again 11 stitches.  Knit the front of the band by knitting 44 rows.  Repeat the increasing and decreasing to make the other ear.  Finish the back of the band by knitting 14 rows.  Now cast off and sew the ends together.
