Hey!

This was inspired by squeakyweasles DNA tank.  But as I'm in my final year of pharmacy I don't really have the time or attention span to finish anything quite that large.  BUt I NEEDED something knitted and DNA.  So I made this headband.

Somewhat clear pic on my dingy ancient carpet:


Very blurry action shot:


DNA Headband

I used worsted weight wool with 3mm needles to make it tight so the cables would really pop

Cast on 3 Stitches
Knit 8 inches of I- Cord
DO NOT BIND OFF

End:
Row 1: k1, yo, k1, yo, k1
Row 2: k2, p1, k2
Row 3: k2, yo, k1 f&b, yo, k2
Row 4: k2, p4, k2
Row 5: k2, yo, k to last two stitches, yo, k2
Row 6: k2, p to last two stitches, k2
*repeat last two rows until you have 24 stitches

Middle:
Work rows 3-38 from http://www.twosheep.com/helix/Helix5.pdf until length desired reached. 

Note:  You will have cast on an extra four stitches for the garter stitched edging.  The First four stitches on right side will always be k2, yo, p2tog and the last four stitches will be p2tog, yo, k2 to keep it straight and from increasing.  This will mean that the first and last stitch in the chart will be incorporated into the p2togs.  On the wrong side rows, there will always be one extra stitch on each side of the chart due to the previous yarn over.

End (starting on a right side row):
Row 1: k2, yo, k2tog, k2tog, knit to last six stitches, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k2
Row 2: k2, purl to last two stitches, k2
*repeat these two rows until there are only six stitches on the needle
Row 3: k2 tog, k2tog, k2tog

DO NOT BIND OFF

Work I-cord for eight inches. 
Cut yarn off, thread end through the three stitches and pull tight.  Hide Ends as you like.

Note: This headband will need extensive blocking due to the tightness of the fabric, and the way the cables want to scrunch up the back.

I've tried to make this as easy as I could to read, but as this is my first knitted pattern, please let me know if there are any errors so that I can fix them.  Thanks!

Brilliant!  I was trying to think of something to do with that cable pattern...

Might just have to try this Smiley  It looks totally cute in green, as well.
