The only problem I'm having with the pattern is the slip stitch, can't remember if the default is knit wise or purl wise. LOL

Write out each line of the pattern. You'll see that it works out fine. Rows 2, 4, & 6 are the same. Row 5 is the only row where you cable. Pattern works up fast.

I'm working on this right now and having a fine time of it. It is working up exactly as pictured. Tell me what your problem is and I will help you straighten it out.

I can't figure out where to start on these directions. Do I start at the "Pattern: Row 1. Purl Row 2. Knit" or do I start where it says "Directions Knit as follows Odd rows, Etc." I am new and trying to figure it out.

I love this pattern but can't figure out when to knit what where! Like when is cable row done on the wrong side? Please help

I'm also confused as to where to start. Is it at Patterns: or Directions: Also, I have never knitted a cable like this! Usually I move stitches to a cable needle, go ahead and knit some stitches and then go back and knit the stitches off of the cable needle. One time cabled stitches at front and next time at back. Also, I didn't realize the headband was folded. It doesn't look folded in the picture. Thank you anyway for posting this pattern. The headband is beautiful. I'm just frustrated trying to figure it out.

Remember, the band is going to be folded lengthwise when finished knitting, 25% turned under on the right side and 25% turned under on the left side, with a seam up the middle of the back.
Trust what you read; it is exactly correct.

I did not realize this was to be folded, but I did figure it out. Thanks all!!!

I used lion brand wool-ease. I did not fold it like the pattern says, I liked better that way and looks great.

I would like to try this pattern, and am wondering if it can be made with worsted weight (4) yarn? If so should I use 2 strands at once?

Looking forward to knitting this. Thank you for your reply.

I want to make this for someone who is allergic to wool. Can I use any worsted? Synthetic and/or cotton?

The PATTERN is the stitches used and how to do them.

DIRECTIONS is where you start the CAST ON and then follow what it says (like when saying to do the PATTERN stitches).

I loved this pattern. It was easy and a fast knit It was also versatile, you could join the sides, or you could leave the sides curled, for lesser thickness. Kudo's to whomever is responsible for posting. Thank you for sharing.

I'm having trouble understanding this pattern. When I do each row where it says directions, it looks nothing like the picture. Is there anyone out there that made this headband?
