Here is my girl with her chickens… She loves them very much, talks to them and spends so much time with them each day.
I have a little headband pattern I would like to share with you Ravelry notes here, it really is an easy knit. I have used even handspun wool that is a single ply, to give you more of an idea about the weight it has 9 wraps to the inch and I would call it a chunky weight. It has a few rounds of basket weave stitch in the middle to add character…
I have been wearing mine today to keep my hair out of my face and it is very comfy indeed:)
If you would like to knit one, here we go:
5.5mm circular needles
Skein of chunky wool, (it is on the thinner side of chunky)
Needle for sewing in ends
Cast on 60 stitches and join for knitting in the round with Magic Loop technique.
Rounds 1-4: Knit in rib, (knit 2 stitches, purl 2 stitches across the round)
Rounds 5-7: (Knit 3, purl 3) across the rounds
Rounds 8-10: (Purl 3, knit 3) across the rounds
Rounds 11-14: Knit in rib, (knit 2 stitches, purl 2 stitches across the round)
Cast off loosely with a larger needle if you wish to give extra stretch.
Sew in ends
Happy knitting and have a super day:)
