A Quick Pattern

I whipped up a couple of headbands for the girls one night.  Addie was talking about how she had broke a traditional headband at school; I figured I could figure out a solution that wouldn’t break.  Each headband will take about a half hour or so to make, depending on how fast you knit. Garter Stitch Headband

Yarn: Peaches and Cream Cotton that I got as a gift. It’s my opinion that for a good headband you don’t want to use anything too stretchy like wool. Hemp or linen would be another good choice.

Pattern: Crochet a chain that is about 12" long. I forced myself to crochet this because it is much faster (even with my limited crochet skills) than doing I-cord.

Cast on 1 stitch at beginning and end of row so you have 3 stitches. K next row.

Repeat these 2 rows until you have 9 stitches. Knit in garter stitch for 15".

SSk the first stitch, knit until 2 stitches before the end, k2tog. K next row. Repeat these 2 rows until you have 3 stitches left. Slip 1, k2tog, pass sliped stitch over.

Crochet a chain that is 12" long. Weave in your ends and you are done!
