Weekender

Oh don't you love those simple weekend projects, you know the ones that just skip along and are finished by Sunday evening, ready to wear Monday morning? I know I love them, and don't knit nearly enough of them.

Weekender is an  adorable headband is worked in Noema from Lousia Harding, a worsted weight cotton blend it has a multitude of tweedy colors flickering in and out of the yarn. The headband is worked back and forth flat from the tails to the center front and is grafted together for a seamless fit. The lace pattern is charted and written and has patterning on the RS and the WS for part of the chart.


This pattern is infinitely adjustable by working more or less repeats of the pattern and would work wonderfully in a smaller gauge yarn with more repeats for length.
