I have a newfound need for headbands. A few months ago I underwent a dramatic change in hairstyle and headbands are essential. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me sooner that I could knit them. I found the Moebius Headband from Headband Love 2. I liked a lot of the patterns in the ebook, and the pattern of the Moebius Headband was almost half the price of the ebook, but I still bought the single pattern. I never claim to be a rocket scientist. I used the same Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label in Dove that I used for my recent ugly fingerless gloves. This pattern is perfect for using partial skeins.
Here is the Moebius part.
This pattern was a simple quick knit. I want to make 20 more.
I have shocking news for any of you who may check in to the blog every once in a while. I’m making a sweater. I had bought a bunch of fingering weight yarn from knitpicks to make a sweater years ago and I abandoned that project. I blogged about it when I first started my blog. So I dug all the yarn out and frogged the old sweater and started a new one by the same pattern writer. Its Sauble by Laura Chau. I want long sleeves on this one but I’m not sure that I should try to modify a sweater pattern. I guess if I make it to the sleeves I can google it and see how difficult it might be. I don’t know about sleeve decreases and all of that. Does anyone have any tips or links on changing sleeve length?
