|Practice of a garter stitch|
|More garter stitch, over and over!|
Finally the stitches started to look the same, so I learned the purl and and set off to find an easy fast pattern to try. I cast on 20 and started making a headband using what they called a cabbage stitch, which is just the knit stitch with an extra wrap.
It was only supposed to take an hour or so but it took me a few nights. After I had a long enough band, measure your head and take off an inch or two, I cast on 26 and made a smaller piece to form the bow, and then 6 more to make the little piece to hold it together.
I must say when it was done and actually looked like it was supposed to I felt an immense amount of pride.
|Isn't it pretty?|
For me personally it will do just fine but I should say that this stitch is a bit too stretchy for a headband. I started one for my grand daughter that will use the same pieces but it will be all garter stitch so that it stretches but not so much.
|I love the big bow!|
While working on the headbands for my daughter and grand daughter I will also be working on a pretty pink camo hat too!
