Look cloesly at hte picture...I'm one of the few ladies who doesn't have a some type of ear covering. I still couldn't believe how fast the weather can change around here. I decided no more cold ears for me. Why not try to knit up a headband. I was really jealous of all of my friends headbands. Nothing like running with numb ears. So, if you scroll down you will find the pattern and pictures of the finally project.
Plus, I'm going to knit up a couple more headband to give away as xmas gifts for my running friends.
Yarn: Yarn Bee-med weighted Alpaca/acrylic yarn-color: Damson
Amount: 40 yards
Gauge: 3.5 stitches per inch on size 11 needles
Finished Dimension: 2.75 x 18 inches (will fit up to 23 inch cicumference when worn as pictured above)
Pleas note: I used size 11 needles but next time I'm planning on using size 10.
Cast on 13 stitches
Work back and forth in knit stitch-slip the last stitch in each row knitwise to produce a nice edge.
work until approximate length.
I used the mattress seem method to connect the two ends.

Last year, I started this project but I never finished it. It's amazing all the stuff, I have not finished over the years. I thought it was quite silly me, the loom and knitting supplies sat in my desk drawer. I decided to finish it this weekend. The hat was so easy and fast. A total of three hours...done. One less thing, to have to haunt me. Another completed project. Plus, it's cute.
