Begonia Headband: Free Knit Pattern
If you know how to knit or crochet, the first thing you will have in mind is how to D.I.Y something as a gift to your family, friends or for others who might you care for (for example the homeless shelter, elderly care). There are many things for everyone on special occasions, but if you knit or crochet any big projects at once, you might fall behind.
That is why a small-scale gifts like this knitted headband is made up. I named her as Begonia Headband. This knit stuff is super fast and I am sure you would enjoy making it.

Since it is the season of Christmas, I have red color in mind. Begonia red flowers are my choice of inspiration. According to Gardenguides.com, Begonias are a hardy flowering plant that comes in a wide variety of colors, including red; but they grow well in a variety of locations, including the ground, plant pots and even in hanging baskets. Red begonia symbolizes desire, pleasure, love, passion, and romance. It can be an excellent gift to your romantic partner to show of your undying love, desire, and devotion. Other than that, begonias also traditionally symbolic of uniqueness, harmony, gratitude, peace, and harmony.
1 ball of 50 gm Ice Yarns Elite Baby – 100% Antipiling Acrylic (Red color) which I purchased from Norie Majid Shopee.
Other Similar Yarns
Brave 500 yarn is 100% Premium Acrylic, which is more about life’s adventure and works wonders for projects such as hats, scarves or baby blankets using just one ball. It is gentle enough for sensitive skin and easy-care.
Lion Brand Yarn such as Mandala Craft Cake Yarn is one of favourite acrylic yarn. It is an incredibly versatile especially if you want to make this twisted headband. Besides they are a great easy-care choice for creating machine-washable projects!
DMC 100% Baby is a great choice. It is pure merino “super wash” wool, perfect to create warm, stretchable and light garments.
Anyway, this headband can be knit in any yarn type/weight. What you will have to do is to figure out the number stitches you would cast on.
Recommended needles for Ice Yarns Elite Baby is 4.00 mm (Us Size 6) mm, but I used 3.50 mm needles (US size 4). You can use either single point of needle or circular needle.
15 sitches and 24 rows (4X4 inches / 10X10 cm).
Gauge is not crucial for this project because you can use any type of yarn you able to knit as a beginner.
- k knit
- rep repeat
- s1 p slip one stitch purlwise
- RS right side
Cast on 30 sts (or you can CO any st you prefer as long as it is even number).
Row 1: *K1, sl1 p, repeat from * to end of row.
Repeat the row above until piece measures the desired length. Knit until headband fits snuggly around your head. Make sure headband is likely to stretch over time, the tighter fit is better).
Bind off. Leaving a tail about 8 inches long or just enough for seaming section.
Decide which side of the headband will be the RS is facing up. Fold both ends and move them close together. Attach the edges as the picture, then seam them together using the yarn tail. You can use any method of seaming you prefer, but make sure it would tight enough to hold both ends. Once done, turn your headband to make the seam faces inwards
I hope you enjoy making this project and love what you do.
Happy Knitting 😉
