What materials did you use? Headbands as pictured were made using Cascade 220 wool; any worsted weight yarn could be used. Choose favorite team or school colors, or a fashion combination you love!

What are you most proud of? The detailed instructions and photos I included in the pattern for making and attaching the optional flower.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of the color work. The slip stitch pattern is easy and fun to work!

I really like this flower. Can I buy this pattern?

Thanks so much! It's great fun to make. The pattern is for sale in My Ravelry Store (see link above). If you can't purchase it there for any reason, let me know.

I think I bit off more than I can chew. Not sure I understand how to add the color. I've been knitting for about a year, but have never added a color before. I knit continental sytle

Hi Jornada! I think I posted my response in the wrong place. See my comment to you above. Thanks!

Oh dear! Why don't you e-mail me (the address is at the end of the pattern) and I'll try to help you. I knit continental also.

How can I convert this pattern to a scarf?

Hi Carol! Cast on an odd number of stitches and make a test swatch in the slip stitch pattern in the yarns you're going to use for the scarf. That will determine your gauge. (You might want the gauge to be a little bit looser than specified for the headband so the scarf will drape nicely.) Then decide how wide you want your scarf to be and cast on the appropriate number of stitches, based on your gauge, always casting on an odd number of stitches. Follow the directions for the headband without the taper (Style B) and work in the slip stitch pattern until the scarf is as long as you want it to be. If you have more detailed questions, feel free to e-mail me (address is on the pattern).
