Double the warmth with Shadowlands Headband. Light filters through shades of dusk on the top while ribbing underneath adjusts for a snuggly warm fit. Contrasting cables interplay in two styles for two winter weather needs – a fashionable warm winter headband that’s great for keeping your hair in place and a built for the Northern winter width that keeps you warm and stylish!

Color It: for a traditional light in front and dark in back make your lightest color MC and your darkest CC (shown). To have the shadowed cable pop, make your lightest color CC and your darkest color MC.
Cable It: Shadowland Headband features a medley of 1/1 cables. A cable needle is optional. You may choose to work the sts out of order without one.
Graft It: though a provisional cast on is called for, if you are like me and hate undoing those, cast on with a cable cast on and follow this grafting live sts to the first row of stitches trick. Check out the blog here for a quick video demonstration.
