Work head band back and forth on double pointed needles and sew together mid back.

HEAD BAND:
Cast on 24 stitches on double pointed needles size 5 mm with Nepal. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above. Now work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 (= 3 stitches) 7 times in total, A.2 (= 1 stitch), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this until piece measures 21 cm, adjust so that next row is worked from right side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch * knit 1, purl 2 stitch together *, work from *-* 7 times in total, knit 1, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 17 stitches. Insert a marker thread here! NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Continue back and forth with knit over knit and purl over purl until piece measures 5 cm - adjust so that next row is worked from right side. Switch back to double pointed needles size 5 mm. Work next row as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, purl 1, knit 1 *, work from *-* 7 times in total = 24 stitches. On next row knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Continue with pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 (= 3 stitches) 7 times in total, A.2 (= 1 stitch), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

Do the charts show right side rows only?

DROPS Design 02.03.2019 kl. 08:32:

Hello Shirley. Charts show rows on both sides of work. Happy knitting!

Hanna 27.01.2019 - 23:14:

Hei! Skal A2 alltid strikkes rett før siste maske, eller skal den strikkes rett etter første maske på vrangen?

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 09:43:

Hei Hanna. Diagrammene viser mønsteret sett fra rettsiden. De skal strikke på samme sted oppover, så når du strikker fra vrangen må diagrammene strikkes i motsatt rekkefølge, og motsatt vei (fra venstre mot høyre). God fornøyelse

Helle 16.01.2019 - 14:31:

Spørgsmål til maske antal. 7x3=21+ 2 kantmasker, en i hver side. Det giver 23 m, men opskriften siger 24 m.

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 08:48:

Hej Helle, husk A.2 (1 maske) inden den sidste kantmaske :)

Mia 11.01.2019 - 06:32:

Hej! Är tanken att mönster på A1 börjar från högersida och går till vänster? Mvh Mia

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 07:27:

Hei Mia. Det stemmer: du leser strikkedigrammer fra høyre mot venstre, nedenfra og opp. Du begynner altså med symbolet nederst i høyre hjørnet og jobber deg oppover og bortover. God fornøyelse.

The English pattern doesn't tell specifically when to change back to the bigger needles after knitting the narrower part, but I assume the first row on bigger needles is the 'yarn over' one?

DROPS Design 14.12.2018 kl. 13:12:

Dear Melanie, thanks for your feedback, pattern has been edited, you change back to the bigger needles just before working the row with yarn overs. Happy knitting!

Je trouvais que ce n'etait pas joli apres avoir fait le rang suivant les 5cm. Au lieu de faire 1 jete, j'ai tricote la maille 2 fois; une fois a l'endroit et une fois a l'envers. Le resultat est impeccable. Juste une idee. Merci
