hopefully i'll be getting a job at home depot soon, so i knitted up this headband to look all cute and stuffs. sorry my face looks so icky. i usually doll it up for photos but i want y'all to look at the head band, not me.




i don't have much experience in cabling, so i'm proud of this. if anyone wants the pattern i made up for it, leave me a comment. lemme know what y'all think!!

also, it wouldn't be a proper post if i didn't include my doggy.

EDIT FOR PATTERN:
Mk, let's see if I can remember this. I used US 4 needles, but needle size and yarn isn't that crucial.
CO 6
1) K1, P1, K2, P1, K1
2) P1, K1, P2, K1, P1
Repeat until it measures from the bottom back of your head until just above the top of your ear.
a)K1, P1, M1, K2, M1, P1, K1
b)P1, K2, P4, K2, P1

Cable Pattern
1) K1, P1, sl 2 st to cable needle and hold in BACK of work, K2 from left needle, then K2 from cable needle, P1, K1
2) P1, K1, P4, K1, P1
3) K1, P1, K4, P1, K1
4) Same as row 2

Repeat Cable Pattern until it reaches from the bottom back of your head, over the top and to about the top of your OTHER ear. End on WS row (i.e. one that starts and ends with a purl st.)
Then) K1, P1, K2tog, K2, ssk, K1
2) P1, K1, P2, K1, P1
Continue in the same pattern you started with until it reaches the back of your head.
You can finish however you want, whether it's BO and sew the ends together (like I did) or use a 3-needle BO or whatever. Cabling really is easier than I thought, and this would be a good first cabling project.

EDIT: I now have a no-slip version here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177003.0

Son won't you play me a memory?
I'm not really sure how it goes.
But it's sad and it's sweet
and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes.

That's a nice headband and you look fine, not icky at all.

Is it an elasitc headband, or those with a plastic inside?

For some reason, may be my head shape, my head cannot hold a elastic headband, keep slipping in a short time.

That's a cute dog, did you make any clothes for him in winter??

my dog says thank you, and i have been working on some clothes for her, but i just got her in april, so she didn't need them. although chihuahuas shake a lot so i knitted her an ugly sweater that she hates lol.

it's this kind:

i have trouble with them slipping, too, which is why i made the back part just a little bit narrower, but i also sometimes secure them with bobby pins, it seems to help. it wouldn't be at all hard to modify it for attaching to a regular head band, though. hmm i sense a new project. let me go buy a head band and try to make one and let you know how it went.

sure, looking forward.

I brought those 'plastic hairband', but the edges (the sides) are so sharp, could cut ears, ah~~~!

Your headband looks great! I wish I was schooled enough in knitting to do cables. I'm still learning. Suggestion, though.....I am seeing the headband smaller in circumference and made into a dog collar, or necklace. Just think, you could make them in all different colors!

And good luck with your Home Depot job. We are getting ours built now. I believe they are working on the inside of it at the present. I'm just crossing my fingers that Tony Stewart will make an appearance at the Grand Opening. Hehe!
