I've been following this thread started by maritimah, and I really wanted to try the pattern out. You can find the Knit & Tonic Dream swatch here. It's such an easy pattern, I wondered why there wasn't a KAL for this already?

I'm less than halfway, but I wanted to post an in-progress shot - I hope you guys like it! Any feedback would be really appreciated! It's my first cable project!  Grin

I'm using Classic Elite Premiere pima/tencel blend (color is 5226), on size 6 needles. I cut out one of the "cables", as my gauge swatch led me to believe it would end up too wide to be a head wrap I liked. I'm pretty pleased with how it's coming, although it is curling quite a bit. I hope it blocks well, I didn't bother with another scarf I made with this yarn!  Cheesy I'll be sure to post a finished shot when I'm done!

Got my yarn for this on a recent trip to Paris, going to start it ASAP (as soon as I get the correct needle size). Thanks so much for your beautiful inspiration and the link. Good luck finishing, Seana Wink

I started on this yesterday. I posted in the other thread, but I think this one is more appropriate. I'm using Sugar'n Cream in Midnight Magic, which I hope is okay to use. I don't really want to go out and buy something new. Mine's coming out a little wide so far as well, but we'll see. I'm also doing four wrap arounds instead of three.

And actually I think I'll put the laptop away and knit for a while.

I'd be really interested in what your 4 wraps look like Mackymoo! It was something I considered, but then forgot when I actually got to the first wrap row!  Grin

This pattern is so easy! Once you get the wrapping and switching stitches thing down, it's really fun! I totally didn't follow the specs for the needle size or yarn to use, but mine came out well. I used size 8's with Caron Simply Soft Brites in blue mint. I did about 20 of the dropped stitch rows (it's not 4 feet long like the website suggests, but I knew mine would be a headwrap). It curls like a mofo (that's what I get for using acrylic) but the edges fold under so it's more of a headband width. It's a good time, and I love mine. I'm sure you ladies will, too! Happy knitting!

I'm in! I need a quick, easy project, and this looks like just that, but without being so easy it's boring. I'm using a sparkley, white Wool-ease that I bought just because it was sparkely. I only have one skein because that's all there was in the store, so I haven't known what to do with it, but now I do. I cast on this morning, but haven't had time to work on it much yet.

Here's my progress so far.






I don't know if you can tell on the last picture, but the first crossover thingy I only wrapped around three times, the rest are all four.

I'm happy with it so far, even if it is a little thick. I want to see other people's!

macymoo, I loooove the colors in the yarn you used! So pretty!

I started mine today.. didn't get very far.. lol


I'm using TLC baby soft yarn on size 4 needles.. so it's a little less than 4" wide.. but i didn't want it that wide anyways.. I had to hold the end down just to get a pic.. it won't stop curling!
