The Gemini Head Wrap is a super cute reversible head wrap/headband knit using the double knit technique! Pick two of your favourite fingering weight yarns and knit up this gorgeous little head wrap, and you can pick which side to showcase depending on your mood and outfit of the day! You could wear it as a headband, head wrap, hair tie, bag tie, you name it!
This is a relatively simple knit, however it does use the double knitting technique, as well as increases and decreases while double knitting. It isn’t too complicated but it can take a little bit to get used to!
Approx. 28” length** x 2.5” width
The length is made to measure, so you can make it to fit your head measurements.
3.5 mm / US 4 - can use circulars or straight needles
may need other size needles to meet gauge
26 sts x 30 rows = 4 x 4 “ (10 x 10 cm), in double knit pattern, worked flat
this gauge is rough, as it is extrapolated from the width of the head wrap. If you are somewhere around this for your stitch gauge you should be fine, the row count doesn’t really matter as you are making it to measure!
Any two colours of fingering weight yarn! I chose a neutral and a fun variegated so I could have two totally different looks, but feel free to choose whatever speaks to you! You don’t need much yardage for this design, so this is a great way to use up some leftovers from other projects!
I used Explorer Knits - Cashmere Caverns Sock (435 yds / 100 g) in Don’t Be Jelly and Less Traveled Yarn - 757 Sock (463 yds / 100 g) in Vanta for my sample. My sample used about 13 g of each colour, but you may need a little more or less depending on your head size.
Colour 1: ~10-15 g
Colour 2: ~10-15 g
Total yardage for solid version: ~20-30 g
