hair band

I thought I would have a go at a few different decorative knitting stitches.....I found this pattern Leftovers Headband which uses a nice lacy stitch. I knitted a shorter band, (44cms long) and then added two lengths of icord (each 20cms long) to be tied at the back of the head.

I knitted this one with dk cotton I'm pleased the way it brings a little order to my unruly hair.... I think for the winter I may knit a few woolly ones.

Bye, Ali

    Love this, can you tell me how the Icord is attached please


    1. Hi, Its so long ago I can hardly remember but i think I started off with 5 sts for the icord then knitted a length of i cord ...I then had transitional rows which i knitted flat increasing at each end
      Then I followed the pattern for the band
      then again transitional rows instead decreasing at each end and then with the 5 sts icorded............the transitional rows looked a bit untidy but i thought they wouldnt be seen under my hair, hope this helps


Id love to hear what you think about my blog, knits etc.
