I am “attempting” to make a headband from the Fall 2005 issue of Knit it (page 76). This is the first time I’ve tried using a chart and I confess, I am bamboozled. I thought a headband would be good to learn on…I thought I was an intermediate knitter, but apparently, I still need some help.
The headband has a simple 24-stitch snowflake design repeated 5 times along the band. It looks simple…but I don’t know when to add/switch colors. I did sort of okay…until I reached the row where the star points go horizontal. How many bobbins would you use to create this design? Do I need one for the main color and the snowflake? Can you help? Is there a good book that can help me learn how to do something like this?
Here’s a rendition of the chart the pattern provided:
Thanks in advance!
