Very nice. Drop stitches are pretty. I think it's really easy to knit one of the yo's by mistake, I've done it, and maybe that's where your difference in the number of stitches came from. You've got a great idea, small items like this are great for practice, I need to do some.

Hi Knitbeg - I just LOVE those scrunchies - they are very inventive. Pretty colours, too.

Oh No! How could I be so stupid! It should be ACCESSORIES, not assecoiries. How on earth did anybody even understood what I meant?

I'm so going to edit the name of this thread...

Edit: But how? Not in the first post...

The next project was a headband, as no matter how many hairties I use somehow I always have some strand of hair which tries to obstruct my view. I googled "knit lace hairband" and then realised it had to be "knit, lace, headband". I then usually go to "google images" so I can see what the finished product might look like. That is, if there is a pattern to be found... otherwise I'll digg into all sorts of knitting sites and books to find a similar pattern

But this time I was lucky and I found what I was looking for:
The Fiona Knit Headband, a variation on the February Lady Knit Headband
As the yarn I wanted to use wasn't worsted but rather thin, I used 1mm needles instead though - I never realised the implications untill I started knitting Oh well, it turned out nice

I did knit it over a couple of times, as I really couldn't go back to the mistake I made and just ended up undoing the whole thing (3 times over, 1 time halfway!). I really need to teach myself to fix mistakes or to use more and more lifelines...


Here is halfway, it really curls


I didn't do the 3 needle bind off as I am confinced it shouldn't be used when you aren't knitting in stockinette - or at least not by me because it frustrates me So I just stitched the edges together.
Here's the front:

And the back:


The whole of it:

And while wearing:


I made a bracelet with the same pattern to go with it:

And the back with the seam:


Now I just hope they won't stretch too much...

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

I think this may work, perhaps for a future project. Do a provisional cast on in a smaller size needle and knit for a couple of rows in stockinette stitch. Change to needle size required for pattern. Work last rows to match first ones in smaller needle, (stockinette for same number of rows). Then do the three needle bind off. If you were working any sort of cable pattern you would definitely want to begin and end in a smaller needle because the cable pattern makes the project smaller width wise.

Go to the first post and edit, then click advanced edit you'll be able to fix it. Don't worry though...typos and autocorrect are a fact of life.
