I’ve been looking for easy patterns that I can make fairly quickly and that won’t be ruined (or overwhelmingly frustrating) by my hand tremors or the odd bit of involuntary arm jerking. The solution seems to be (a) large needles, (b) bulky yarn and (c) very simple patterns, because if I drop stitches sometimes they might be gone forever. I found one that bowled me over with it’s simplicity. One of those: that is so simple it’s brilliant moments. I had friends guess what it was as I was making as I went, much to my amusement.
It grew bigger…
And then all of a sudden it was finished. Ta-DA!
It is a rectangle.
Okay, what if I fold it in half?
And starting sewing it up…
Now the actual fun part: PULL!
Then you wrap the yarn around.
Now it’s a headband. And a kind of cute one at that.
Apparently it can also be worn as a collar, but I like it much better as a headband.
Yarn: 100% wool, Patons worsted weight, about 100 yards…give or take.
I only modified the pattern by adding the i-cord edging, which adds three extra stitches on each side. To do this: slip the first stitch of every round and then on every odd round purl the last three stitches. Easy as pumpkin pie.
