I have a little project that I made a while ago. When frost kicked in I had to make something to keep my ears warm, a quick project. I decided to make a headband and without further rambling let's get to the pictures:
I loved the pattern, it was a really easy knit. I think the designer, Elisa McLaughlin, is very talented and I will definitely make more of here designs in the future.
The pattern I used is this one and is a free one. It is knitted on straight needles using nothing but knit stitches *for some reason I a far better at knitting than purling*. You join at the end and wrap some yarn around it, it is sooooo simple. A perfect beginner project!
I used some cheap acrylic yarn that I had in my stash in a dark purple color. I think this pattern deserves some nice cotton or wool though, that's what you get when you are on a yarn diet haha.
Well, I pretty happy about this one. I think you should leave the smugness over here and look at other projects at Tami's Amis. There are some pretty awesome projects over there!
Edit: if you want to make something like this and you're not a knitter, try this great crochet pattern from Stephanie Jessica Lau.
