I found this wierd, Amish-looking golf hat:


And I needed a hat to keep the sun from turning my into a krispy kritter, so I took it home. But it was ugly, so I took a skein of some yarn that's been sitting in my stash for about a year now and made a hatband.
Modeled by my signifigant other...




It's not a hugely creative project, but I like it.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Thanks! I took it camping and the kids had a good time filling it up with flowers, plus it was pretty useful for holding pencils, matches, etc. when my hands were full.

Along with everyone else - I like it. Creative is creative - big OR small.

And can I ask you what pattern you used?
I have need of a headband to wear where it is very windy. (The wind ruins my concentration on work you see.)

This one you have created is wide enough, and hopefully will be wind-proof.
If you don't remember, it's alright. I will wing one.

Thanks,
Janey

It's not really a pattern, but the stitch goes like this:
Multiple of 2+1
Row 1: (rs)K
Row 2 and 3: K
Row 4: K1, *yfwd, SKP
 
I used 13 stitches, and I don't remember what size needles, but they were pretty small. 4s or 5s.
Thanks so much for the comment.  Grin

(Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner - I've been away at a conference with no Internet access. Got home late last night.)

I knit three dishcloths while at the conference - a present for the President of the Brain Injury Association of Canada. If I had read this before I went, I could have knitted a hat band (or two) for select members of the Executive Committee. haha

Many thanks for your answer. (Needle size is not too important. I usually fiddle with the size until I get the thickness and stiffness that I want.)
