  1. Thank you for this pattern, Sue! I was planning on chucking my chunky yarn but now, instead, I will make these headbands. Much appreciated.

  2. You are more than welcome. I designed it because I got the yarn free on a magazine and loved the feel of it. Then I couldn't find anything to make out of it so designed this. It's also great as an earwarmer.

  3. im having problem with 1sc inc 2sc 1 sc inc

    1. You need to put 2sc in the 1st st, 1 sc in the next 2 sts, and 2sc in the last st. Hope that helps. each of the , means you are doing the next stitch in the next stitch along.


I hope you enjoy the blog!
Thank you ever so much for commenting!
I love reading everything you put and I will try and reply but it just depends on my health.
Thanks Sue
