Here's the finished head band! It's a little wrinkly because I got the bind off a little tight, but since it's a head band it makes no difference.

I turned out very well. It looks smooth on the side with the white at the edges, the wrinkles only show up on the side with the blue at the edges. It is hard to get the tension the same on both sides with DK. The 2 hats I made both looked better on the inside (the purled hat), I would have expected the opposite and was surprised at that.

The whiter side is the outside of mine so the purl side appears looser. I think it's that way in part here because I bound off a little tighter than I should have.

Great job Jan!

I took a double knit headband class this winter. It was fun to learn the technique but I can't say I'm anxious to go out and do it again. I had trouble keeping my tension the same on both sides, the "inside" side came out with a looser tension. Which I guess didn't really matter but I also bound off a tad too tight.

I had the same problem, but it wasn't too obvious till I bound off too tightly. I had the "purl" yarn in my left hand and the "knit" yarn in my right hand. I wonder if my tension would even out if I switched to purling with my right hand...
