Look at this hat! It’s a crown! So cool.
truebluemeandyou: $4 St. Edward’s Crown pattern at Ravelry. Three people commented on how difficult this project was and they range from relatively easy to hard. It’s free to join Ravelry and there is never any spam from them.
DIY Vest to Jacket Restyle Using Knit Sleeves from DIY People here. There is no pattern for the sleeves but you could use any sleeve pattern on any vest (or chop the sleeves of of a sweater and sew them in). I used Chrome to translate from Danish to English.

DIY Three Strand Knit Cable Headband Tutorial from Concreate here. This is a clear how-to cable tutorial using 8mm or US 11 needles and she tripled the yarn (instead of one strand she used three while knitting). *For lots more knitting projects (including more headbands) go here: http://truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/knitting

DIY Easy Knit Bow Ring Pattern and Tutorial from One Sheepish Girl here. This is a beyond easy DIY even if you are a beginner knitter - size 6 needles, and less than 20 rows. If you don’t knit she has these on sale at her Etsy store for $15 here. At the end of the post she adds: *Note: This pattern is meant for personal use. Please do not reproduce for sale. First seen at Saved by Love Creations here.
DIY Chunky Knit Cable Headband Pattern from Scarffaces here. I love knitting cables because they are so easy to do and look hard to do. This is a really fast project: size 17 needles, super bulky weight yarn (category 6) and using two strands at the same time to knit with. From the comments section on kollobora here by Scarffaces:
This takes me about 30-45 minutes to complete but I am really speedy. I used two strands worked together of lion brand wool-ease thick & quick, and it uses less than one ball.
