FO - UPDATE! Double Knit Headband
My first double knit project. You can see both sides of it here. It's a free Ravelry download here.

Good job!! Your edges look very nice. Is that one side still on the needle or is there some way to finish that looks like that?

It's still on a circular needle. I just folded it in half to show it. I just started another blue stripe then the white to finish it off. So I've got about 8-10 rows left I think.

This is my first time so I'm not sure about binding off or anything yet. I am just following it as it comes. It's much easier than I thought, but then I'm only doing stripes.

Thanks for the reply. I thought it looked like it was still on the needle, but I have learned that just about nothing is impossible in knitting so maybe there was some clever bind off that would give that look. :-) It's coming along very nicely.

Thanks! I wonder if you couldn't do a bind off with the two colors like that on the needle and have it come out pretty.. I won't try it this time, but sometime.

Oh Jan, this is really very nice! I guess I better do this headband, too, if only to master (try?) the double knitting thing, with the two strands held in the left hand. Oy!

I can't do it with both yarns held in either hand. I just can't wrap it around my fingers right! So I use both hands.
