This is my first post to crafster, but certainly not my first FO.  

"Ice Princess"
(my own pattern!)
Note: While the construction is my pattern, the stitch is the Daisy Stitch from The Pattern Library's Traditional Knitting book.

Close up of the stitch:

Yarn: Lion Brand Jiffy in White (or any mohair-esque worsted weight)
Needles: 4mm (I used Inox 4mm straight aluminum)

CO 17 stitches (I used the standard cast on, a provisional cast on would probably work better)
Rows 1 & 3: (RS) Knit
Row 2: K1 *p3tog, yo, purl same 3 sts tog again, k1; rep from *
Row 4: K1, p1, k1 *p3tog, yo, purl same 3 sts tog again, k1; rep from *
Repeat rows 1 - 4 until headband is 2" shorter than the width of your head.
Decreases, row 1: (RS) K1, ssk, k11, k2tog, k1
Row 2 and all WS rows: K1, p to last st, k1
Row 3: K1, ssk, k9, k2tog, k1
Row 5: K1, ssk, k7, k2tog, k1
Row 7: K1, ssk, k5, k2tog, k1
Row 9: K1, ssk, k3, k2tog, k1
Row 11, create buttonhole: K1, ssk four times, k2tog, k1
Row 12: K1, p1, add two stitches, p1, k1
Row 13: K1, ssk, k2tog, k1
Row 14: purl all stitches
Row 15: K1, k2tog, k1
Row 16: purl all stitches
Row 17: cast off stitches
Decreases, beginning edge:  Pick up 17 stitches from the cast on edge (or take out your provisional cast on and use those stitches).  Follow pattern above for decreases, omitting buttonhole.

Sew on button of your choosing on the decreased end without the buttonhole.

When I click on the links, I get a popup for opening a jpg file, not a picture. Any way to fix that?

a jpg file IS a picture...I clicked open (not save to desktop) and I got the pic no problem.

Yeah, I know...but I risk death by husband if I go clicking open anything on the computer. I would rather it was already a pic, so I could just look at it, though a link isn't so bad, either.

Sorry about the lack of pictures- I haven't posted enough to get pics directly in my posts.  Soon, though.

That looks like it was fun to make, and it looks really pretty on you! Great job with the pattern, too.
