Salmon Headband - Knit Pattern
Being born and raised on an island in Alaska, salmon is a way of life. This is an easy, quick knit, suitable for beginners, that creates a texture that reminds me of salmon scales.
There are two versions, so you really get two patterns for a great price! The first version, the scales are offset (top headband in the photo) and the other creates more of a vertical ladder of scales (bottom).
One size fits most, though this pattern is easily customizable by increasing or decreasing by multiples of two. You can also repeat the pattern until you achieve your desired length for a chunky cowl.
