The Valley Yarns Siskin Kit includes the PDF pattern download and the two colors of Southampton yarn needed to knit this cabled headband.
Siskin is an elegant accessory that is has a great mix of beauty and function. Soft and lightweight, this headband will also be warm with the double strands of Valley Yarns Southampton used throughout. This blend of mohair and silk produces a fabric that is airy, soft, and warm with a sheen underneath its halo. These qualities pair with the large-scale cable featured on Siskin to create a beautiful headband with a luxurious feel. Siskin is knit flat in one piece beginning with a provisional cast on and finishing with the two ends being grafted together with Kitchener stitch. Cable pattern is both charted and written out.
