The Diana headband, drawing inspiration from Wonder Woman’s golden tiara, is a quick knit, featuring easy cables and some embroidery in the finishing touches. This is a great gift for the little ones in your life, or keep your own ears warm this winter in superhero style!
Diana Headband is worked in the round from bottom to top. The star detail is added after knitting with an embroidery needle. It looks best worked in solid, semi-solid, or tonal yarns.
This pattern includes both charts and written instructions for the cable panel.
A low-vision version of the pattern is also available. This version is written in 24 point sans serif font (Arial) in all black text. It has no italics. All of the directions are fully written out.
