Well I made a pretty headband here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176780.0 and floatingmoon commented that circular headbands like that tend to slip off her head, and i replied that i have the same problem much of the time. so i decided to make a headband that slips onto those wire-ish ones that hug your head. lemme know what you think!





should i put up the pattern? let me know if you want it. i designed it so that you can make several of these and just slip them on and off the same wire headband. it's just a thin strip of stockinette wiith occasional eyelets for the ribbon. On the back, I put another eyelet towards the bottom of one of the sides to slip the wire headband out. i'll put up a tute if anyone requests. i'd also love suggestions to improve it or ideas for more. thanks!


EDIT: Okay, here's the instructions, i didn't feel like making another and taking photos, so i made a crappy MS Paint thingy.

US 2, Caron Simply Soft, A Wire Headband, Ribbon
FRONT
CO 5
Work Stockinette until about 2" long.
Eyelet Row: K2, yo, K2tog, K1
Continue in stockinette, using the eyelet row every 8th row, until you have 5 eyelets.
Continue in stockinette for 3 1/2".
Eyelet row, then stockinette for 8 rows, same as before, until you have 5 eyelets on that side, then use stockinette for 2 more inches, BO. You should have something similar to image A.

BACK
CO 5
Work stockinette for about an inch, then do an eyelet row. Continue in stockinette until it is the same length as the front piece. Image B.

Cut 2 pieces of ribbon, each about the length of the front piece. Starting from the first eyelet on the backside of the FRONT piece, sew a stitch or two to secure the ribbon. Then start weaving the ribbon in and out of the eyelets, it should end up on top where you made 3 1/2" stockinette. Do the same for the other ribbon on the other half. It's up to you whether to go ahead and tie it into a bow now, I waited until it was on the wire headband. Image C.

Lay the Front and Back pieces against each other, WS together. If you wish, you can sew them with RS together, but it doesn't really matter. Hand-stitch along the sides. Slide the wire headband into the one eyelet you made on the BACK piece, stretching it to put it into the end of it. Voila! If you didn't tuck in the ends as you sewed them together, you can weave them in now.

And that's that. You can knit up a bunch of these in different colors and styles and just use the same wire headband inside! Tell me what y'all think, or let me know if my instructions are unclear. Thanks!

Great headband! I made my first (fairly crappy but functional) headband yesterday out of a tie my dad let me cut up (which is totally cool because I could basically have all of his ties-since he doesn't need them for work-and has literally 15 ties I could cut up. WOO YEAH!)

LOL, I like your reply.

Have you think about recycling his ties to make some father's day gift for him? (just an idea)

That's a great idea! I just don't know what I could make for him out of ties. Everytime I ask him what he wants for Father's Day he says, "World peace and love." x)
