I got inspired by the panta KAL thread and winged this pattern:


no sunny days ahead here in H*town, so I took pics indoors with my shower-fresh hair, lol


I noticed that when the headband wasn't on my head, the lace wanted to fold in on itself, creating a faux-cabled edging look...


eureka! a 2-in-1 headband!

So on to the tut...

MATERIALS:     One pair of US size 6 needles, any worsted weight yarn of your choice(you could easily make 2 from one ball of Kureyon, I used colorway #170), and a tapestry needle to weave in yarn ends and sew the ends of the headband together.

The headband will end up being approx. 20" around, and stretches to fit most headsizes, though this pattern can easily be modifed to a different size, or even a band of your favorite lace pattern!

PATTERN:

CO 10sts

Work 12 rows in 2x2 ribbing (k2,p2)

next row: k2, m1(pick up the second bar down and leave it on your right needle), p2, m1, k2, m1, p2, m1, k2

next row(ws): p2, k4, p2, k4, p2
next row(rs):  k2, p4, k2, p4, k2
work the last two rows four more times

next row: p2, k4, p2, k4, p2

next row: k2, m1, p4, k2, m1, p4, m1, k2

next row(ws): p3, k4, p3, k4, p3
next row(rs):  k3, p4, k3, p4, k3
work the last two rows two more times

next row: p3, k4, p3, k4, p3

PASSIONFLOWER LACE PATTERN:

row 1:  k3, k2tog, k3, yo, k1, yo, k3, slip 1, k1, psso, k3
row 2(and all wrong side rows): purl
row 3: k2, k2tog, k3, yo, k3, yo, k3, sl1k1psso, k2
row 5: k1, k2tog, k3, yo, k5, yo, k3, sl1k1psso, k1
row 7: k2tog, k3, yo, k7, yo, k3, sl1k1psso
row 8: purl

repeat the passionflower lace pattern nine more times

next row(rs): k3, p4, k3, p4, k3
next row(ws):p3, k4, p3, k4, p3
repeat last two rows two more times

next row: k2, p2tog, p3, k2, slip one, purl one, psso, p2, sl1p1psso, k2

next row (ws): p2, k4, p2, k4, p2
next row (rs):  k2, p4, k2, p4, k2
repeat last two rows four more times

next row: p2, k3, p2, k3, p2

next row:  k2, p2tog, sl1p1psso, k2, sl1p1psso, p2tog, k2

next row(ws): p2, k2, p2, k2, p2
next row(rs):  k2, p2, k2, p2, k2
repeat last two rows four more times , bind off, sew ends together with right sides facing, wear with style:)

feel free to ask any questions if my math turns out fuzzy or if the abbreviations are wierd. Thanks for looking Cheesy

Edited to make corrections: Thanks Elijor!!

Guessing from your avatar, we even share the same area code! Small world. You Know You're a Craftster when you take up knitting even though you live in a city where it's in the 90's about 7 or 8 months out of the year(or seems like)!

First off thanks for the lovely pattern. I just made one for my daughter - I think she will love it - she is trying to wear her very long, very curly hair down more often (I hate it pulled back tightly - does nothing for her lovely face) so I thought this might encourage her. It is a nice royal blue to match the polo shirt she has to wear everyday - no excuses now  Wink.

Close up - I don't do pix - maybe I can get an action shot when I give it to her.
It is super cheap Red Heart Supersaver I had laying around and size 6 needles.

There was a bit of a problem with the pattern:
just before this in the lace pattern you have 17 stitches
next row: k2, p2tog, p3, k2, slip one, purl one, psso, p2, sl1p1psso, k2

now you should have 14 but the rows below only have 12 -
all of the k3's and p3's below should actually be k4's and p4's

next row (ws): p2, k3, p2, k3, p2
next row (rs):  k2, p3, k2, p3, k2
repeat last two rows four more times

next row: p2, k3, p2, k3, p2

you have 14 stitches and need to get down to 10 so the row below needs to be changed -
I did it like this - k2, p2tog, sl1p1psso, k2, sl1p1psso, p2tog, k2

next row: k2, p2tog, k1, sl1p1psso, p1, sl1k1psso, k1

now you are down to 10 and can finish with the k2p2 rib

I think it mirrors the other end nicely.

Again thanks for the great pattern - I looked at Panta a lot but thought it was just too wide and bulky for her - I know some folks made it narrower and I was considering it but now I don't have to.

Wow! That headband looks absolutely gorgeous- I love the color!

Elijor, I really appreciate your input and criticisms- and not just from this post, the yarn dyeing one, too Smiley You always have something really useful to say in your posts and I learn a lot from them.  I'll make  those corrections to the pattern as soon as I get back from the finance office at my college.

Edited to add: I just put in the corrections you suggested, thanks for pointing them out!(math was never quite my cup of tea)
