Braided collar or headband

—- To prepare and wait for Christmas, I am going to offer a very special gift to you, my family of Knitters—-

An Advent calendar of free patterns and recipes to make something to warm up our loved ones and tell them "I took this time to please you and tell you that I love you". Pattern for today: Collar or Braided Headband by CLARA BEAUTY .


- Size:
50cm x 18cm

- Material:
2 skeins of Super Bulky Merino wool by Da Fazenda (100% Merino wool; 100g/48m)
10mm needles
1 yarn needle
2 stitch holders

- Sample:
8 sts for 5 cm needles 10 mm in rib 1×1
IMPORTANT . check sample and adjust needle number if necessary

Cast on 24 stitches. Knit in 1×1 rib for 14 rows.

Then, knit only the first 8 stitches (still in 1×1 rib) for 36 rows, leaving the other 16 on hold.

Cut the thread about ten centimeters from the knitting and place these 8 stitches on a stitch holder.

Take the 8 central stitches and knit them for 36 rows in 1×1 rib. Cut the thread and place them also on hold. Join the yarn to the last 8 stitches and knit them for 36 rows in 1×1 rib.

You have three strips tied together at the base like in photo 1:

Then make a braid with the three strips:

Reattach the yarn at the beginning of the row and knit the last 14 rows in 1×1 rib over all the stitches. Cast off and sew.
