How to knit a head band with a cable mid front.

In this DROPS video we show how to knit a head band with a cable mid front. We have already cast on an x number of stitches and we knit 2, purl 2 (=rib) with 1 edge stich in each side in garter stitch (= Knit the stitch from both the right and wrong side). Work until stated measurement in the pattern, divide the piece in the middle. Work rib as before with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side (until stated measurement in the pattern). 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 stated measurement. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

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.

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.
