I wanted to make a true “chillchaser” headband for my sister who lives in Vermont. It needed to be dense to keep the wind out, and in addition she is allergic to wool. So, my first choice was a chunky acrylic yarn. Lion Brand “Thick & Quick”. I added a lining to the ear & back parts for her as she needed the extra protection.
I then experimented with some of my own yarns, like Mischa chunky cashmere. (see picture of Misha in “Cranberry” ) This is quick project that makes a great gift.


EXPERIENCE: Advanced beginner

Tools needed: size 8 needles, and a set of size 8 DPN’s

62-74 yards of a chunky or aran yarn

SIZING: S -18 1/2 circumference (to fit a 20 1/2 ” head)
M- 19 1/2 (to fit 21 1/2) and L-20 1/2 (to fit 22 1/2)

since the pattern goes by length, the row gauge is not critical.Therefore you can use a variety of Aran to Chunky yarns.
gauge= 6 st per inch in 1 x 1 rib.
SKILLS: 1 x 1 rib, should be able to understand Kitchener Stitch. Detailed instructions in the pattern make this a good tutorial for those who have never tried it.
