My daughter wanted an earband that would be warm, thin, not itchy, and above all, very cool. This design met her requirements. Soft Malabrigo Rios Yarn or Wool of the Andes Yarn, knit on smaller than usual needles for a tight fabric and seed stitch edges to allow it to lie flat. Three length, SM (MED, LG). If in doubt, and the intended wearer is not there to be measured, MED is the best bet, but you can knit it any length you like and customize for the wearer. Remember to make it about 1.5 inches smaller than wearer's head to allow for stretch. Great quick gift, very elegant in heathered or tonal yarns that can show off the stitches and give richness to the final product. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, cast on GAUGE 15 sts = 2 ins in cable pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 18 / 19 /20 inch circumference - customizable SUGGESTED YARN 100 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Malabrigo Rios or Knit Picks WOA Worsted COLORWAY Rios - Glazed Carrot / WOA Green Tea Heather
