This design is by Monika Evans, and is available for purchase at her Ravelry website. From Monika: "One of my favorite '80s accessories is the headband - keeps your ears and forehead warm without mussing up your hair or resulting in a too hot head. I came up with a version where you can either go John Travolta or Jane Fonda all the way, or make a wider one that still sticks to the general idea, but is a little more practical; and I can totally imagine the kids from the Brat Pack wearing them all the time. The narrow one could also work as a garter in a pinch. :-) The headbands are a great first cable and I-cord project and can be knit by any confident beginner - if you have an I-cord machine, it will be a super-quick knit to boot! Either version does not require much yarn, and you can make them either all in one color or use a contrast for the I-cords. The yarn used here is the limited edition '80s Prom-inspired 'Brat Pack' color by Lorna's Laces in Shepherd Sport; but any fun sport bits from your stash will work just as well."
