Yes, I do think an I-cord would work!  As you can see in my pic, my ends starting fraying immediately.  Unfortunately, I was in too much of a rush to get it in the mail for her bday, so I couldn't figure out what to do.  Next time I would coat the ends with fabric defrayer (available at sewing stores).  With the I-cord, you could also do some cool variations.  Depending on the yarn you use, I'm thinking add some beads or sequins every 1/2 inch or so, or--add a bunch of beads to the end. I think that would have made my ends look nicer.
Thanks again for sharing the pattern, eoz!

"I must go down to the seas again,
to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way,
where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over."

Love this pattern!

I did a headband -- 17 stitches wide, tapered both ends and attached some i-cord. I wore this to work today and got all kinds of compliments on it! I used a cashmere aran from A.C. Moore... Thanks for sharing the pattern, eoz!

That headband is very, very cool.

As is the gold belt. Mmm, gold...

(I'm very chuffed to see other people using this pattern/idea. Yay crafting!  Grin)

Q. What do you do with a dead chemist?

I did one more headband -- looks just like the green one, but... it's white! Sorry, I just had to share; I think this is a great pattern...!

Did you ever find out (and/or tell us) which volume of the Golden Hands series this pattern came from?

I've just discovered that a neighbour has nearly all the volumes.
She's thinking of doing a massive purge of her crafty things - because of moving to a smaller place - so I'm going to encourage her to pass them on in my direction. (Or at least keep me informed about when she's putting stuff out for the garbage.)
If I could show her the pattern I want to make in one of those books, she'd likely feel more inclined to burden me with her "junk".

i love this as a head band

so I guess we're back to us, oh cameraman
swing the focus. In case I lost my train of
thought, where was it that we last left off?
let's pick up, pick up

too weird to live, too rare to die.

wow..i was doing a search on here for how to make a garter belt and saw this in the search results, and even though this wasn't what i was looking for, i like how red lacey things look, so i figured i'd take a gander. i absolutely ADORE this, and i am definately going to be making one very soon.

a pile of shit has a thousand eyes.
