So I had to be rescued by my fiancé and thus had time to kill. I had leftover yarn in my bag from my dads’ scarf and my knitting needles so I made this cute headband! (Tip: Always carry yarn a needles in your bag)
I have been experimenting with patterns so today I bring you a chevron pattern!

I ended in a seed stich diamond by casting off each end of the line.
I left one stich on the needle to chain off a loop for the button.
To create a matching button I took the little bit of yarn I had left and covered a button I had on hand.
I found the knitting was a bit scrunched up in places so I took an Iron to it to flatten it.
Stay warm dear reader!!
My carry along is paper squares. I fold flowers or hummingbirds.ReplyDelete
That's great too! I did that for a little bit when I was into modular origamiDelete
Love your headband and the pattern. Glad to hear you weren't hurt when your car decided to be a sled.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! While I did hurt the car they are easier to fix then me!Delete
What does the capital letter and then the number stand for???ReplyDelete
Good question (that I should have noted) the "K" stands for knit, and the "P" stands for purl. So if it says K3 it means knit 3 and if it says P3 that means purl 3. So we are still in the realm of beginners but kicking it up a notch!Delete
Cool headband! Though it was really unfortunate what happened with your car, I'm glad your husband was able to rescue you. How's the car now? Getting it repaired and checked is advisable since recurring problems are a dime a dozen. Drive safely!ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful knitted headband, Amimi! I love how you turned an unfortunate event into a creative outburst. A broken down car can make anybody feel quite uneasy, but you kept your cool. Well, I hope the car is up and running now. It'd be troublesome if it's still broken. Take care! :)ReplyDelete
