I saw some patterns by DROPS, I think it could be Finnish (you know the country) ha ha
Well I thought I would knit my daughter a head band, she goes to work via a car so she doesn’t get too cold but I have some bits of wool and thought that I would use it up. Well, if someone can tell me what the gist is they must be good at deciphering. I just want to do a couple of rows in pink and I have a 50g roll of fluffy wool and then end with another couple of pink rows. The wool for the middle is quite thick and the head band takes something like 4mm needles. So I looked at the patterns and thought no way I can do this pattern until I realised that the wool I would be using it didn’t really need a pattern. I have measured my head (yes its not big) and the size is 56/58cm
I haven’t copied the pattern because its irrelvant now, but can someone tell me what to do. How many to cast on as it says 20" is that enough to go round your head - thinking you have to have the head ban fairly tight? Thanks, Anne in Spain
**Tram Lines by DROPS Design **
** GARTER ST (back and forth):**
** K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows. **
** PATTERN: **
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
Worked back and forth on needle and sew tog mid back.
Cast on 24 sts with Karisma on needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work A.1a (= 2 rows) 1-2 times.
**Continue with A.1b. When entire diagram has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures 7-8 cm / 2 3/4"-3 1/8’’. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Repeat A.1a and A.1b 6 more times vertically. **
Size S/M is now done. In size M/L continue with 4 rows with K over K and P over P. Piece measures 49-51 cm / 19 1/4"-20’’. Bind off.
Sew tog cast-on edge and bind-off edge mid back with invisible grafting/kitchener stitches.
