Before All Things (pt. 1)

Hey there! I hope you’re getting used to knitting and purling, and you’re ready for our next pattern! The next one I’ll be sharing is one of my favorites. It’s fairly simple, doesn’t take too much time, and it’s really great to give as a gift (especially with Christmas coming up!) We’ll be learning how to make a head warmer, or head wrap. It’s essentially a knitted head band, that will keep your head and ears super cozy during the warmer months! It looks like this:

To make this, you can use a variety sizes of needles and yarns, and it’s really up to you to decide how big you want your stitches and how thick you want the yarn to be. I typically use size 8 needles and yarn that is still thick, but thinner than the one we used for the scarf. I think these look good:

Head Warmer Pattern

  1. Cast on 12 stitches. Using the same technique as the scarf, make sure you have enough space between each stitch that they sit comfortably, and make sure that’s the width you want for your head warmer. If it’s too thick, take a few out, and if it’s too thin, add a few more. The number of stitches really depends on how big your needles/yarn/head are!
  2. Knit as many rows as it takes to wrap around your head, minus about an inch. You want there to be a little stretch to it so it sits snugly on the head.

That’s it for this blog! Check out the next one to see how to finish it. If you want to see it made real-time, check out this video (simple), or this video (more complicated).


I love that this pattern is about the head. God gave us the gift of knowledge and intellect. We can reason, we we can think freely. Often, we don’t think of these things as gifts, but they really are. It’s easy to forget that they’re gifts, and that there is a Giver of those gifts. But perhaps the most important thing we can do in this life is be gracious for the gifts the Lord has given us, and to use them to the best of our ability.

When we use our reason, our intellect, and our will for good things, it is pleasing to God. He desires us to help others using these gifts, especially in serving Him and bringing about His kingdom in this life.

Because of Him, we are able to think, reason, share, and love. Because of Him, everything holds together. He holds everything in place, and delights in the good ways we use the gifts He has given us. Let us work to please Him in all things!

He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” -Colossians 1:17
