-------------------------------------------------------

HEAD BAND - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth on needle from mid back and sewn together to finish, but halfway through the piece is divided in the middle to make a cable mid front.

HEAD BAND:
Cast on 24 stitches with needle size 10 mm and Eskimo. Work pattern from the right side as follows: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, (knit 2, purl 2) until there are 3 stitches left on the row, knit 2, 1 stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 21-22-23 cm divide the piece in the middle (= 12 stitches in each half). Work rib as before with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side for 7 cm over the first half. Then work the second half in the same way. Place the stitches from the first half back on the needle, but change places with the second half so that the two halves are plaited mid front. Continue with rib and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until the head band measures a total of 49-51-53 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the head band together mid back, sewing each and every stitch on the cast-off-edge together with each and every stitch on the cast-on-edge. Make sure that the seam is not tight. Cut and fasten the strand.
