It's a headband that includes only knits and purls, which I understand. What I don't understand is the increasing and decreasing. I know I only increase on the "right side" with are only odd rows, but I'm a little confused as to which purls I increase into and when, etc. When I tried with increasing, I did not know what to do with the extra stitches I increased when I got to the "wrong side", as the pattern does not tell you how to do each row by row. If anybody is able to translate this pattern so that I am able to understand it like a 5 year old might be able to, that would be great. Thank you for any of your time, and I'm sorry for any of my poor explainations. PATTERN: Headband: Start at center back. Cast on 19 sts. Work in rib as follows: Row 1 (right side): K 1 (edge st knit in garter st), * K 2, P 1 * repeat a total of 5 times – finish row with K 2 and K 1 (edge st knit in garter st). Row 2 (wrong side): K 1 (edge st knit in garter st), * P 2, K 1 * repeat a total of 5 times – finish row with P 2 and K 1 (edge st knit in garter st). Make all incs on right side rows, inc by P 2 sts into 1 P stitch. When the piece measures 8 cm/3" inc all P 1 to P 2 = 24 sts. When the piece measures 14 cm/5½" inc all P 2 to P 3 = 29 sts. When the piece measures 18 cm/7" inc all P 3 to P 4 = 34 sts. When the piece measures 21 cm/ 8 1/4" inc all P 4 to P 5 = 39 sts. When the piece measures 24 cm/ 9½" place a marker = this is the center of headband. Now reverse shaping – measure from marker. Make all decs on right side rows, dec by P2 tog. (opposite of inc) When the piece measures a total of 48 cm/ 19" bind off and sew to cast on edge. Last edited by Schliggle : 10-04-2013 at 12:16 PM. Reason: Edited due to copyright issues
