There was a lot of buzz about this little headband on Craftster last year. Several people wrote their own patterns, others struggled to translate the Garnstudio Drops pattern from Norwegian. They seemed to have fun doing this however, to me it was easier just to look at the translated pattern offered by the pattern company.
The English translation of the headband, or as they called it on Craftster - Panta, pattern.
The colour is a bit off in this photo it was super bright outside this morning and the glare from the ice and snow did not help.
Close up detail, of the Manos del Uruguay yarn I used, shows the colour a bit better.
I began this knitted headscarf over Christmas. I knit maybe 6 rows, and then ignored it for almost two months, until I picked it up on Tuesday night. I finished it Wednesday. It is a quick knit and took me about two - three hours total to complete.
The yarn is a beautiful Fleece Artist Country Mohair. The Fleece Artist Country Mohair yarn was a limited run and will not be offered again. At only $20.00 a skein in the bargain bin at LK Yarns so, I bought several skeins in different colourways.
Close-up of the buttons I was contemplating.
I did not care for the button hole option offered in the pattern, basically she suggested you use a hole created by your short row turning. I like items to have proper finishing so, I crocheted a button hole loop. Besides my short row turnings, don't generally create holes; at least not ones big enough for a button to go through.
This is my completed Calorimetry. I have short hair so this knitted headscarf covers most of my head. I can wear it either buttoned under my chin or buttoned behind my head, either way covers my ears and keeps me warm.
Head cosy on the East Coast.
