Hey!
I'm working on a geek wristband. Has anyone else done this one? (Can you post pictures if you have?) With the wristbands are you supposed to knit one row and purl the next?
Thanks

yep. after you get past the ribbing, they're done in stockinette (or stocking) stitch. alternating knit and purl rows is how you create it. unless you're knitting in the round, of course. then you just knit every round.

i know that the pattern for the wristbands says to knit it flat, but i personally think it's easier to do it in the round. then you can knit all the rounds and you don't have to sew the seam at the end!

either way, have fun!

I wish I could knit it in the round... but I can't afford or have time to go and get US 5 circs  Cry O well. I wasn't sure about all of the knitting and purling because the book didn't say, but when I looked at the pictures I got it.  Shocked Thanks!

don't worry - the intarsia (or fair isle) is easier flat anyways.  Wink
