>Head scarf


rightleftbuttoned behind neck

My sister-in-law gave a head band similar to this to my youngest daughter who had a similar one already that her great grandmother had worn years and years ago. I had 1 skein of yarn so I thought I would figure it out if I could draft my own pattern from it. Was easy enough it is made with short rows up the length of the hat I cast on 100 stitches. It has with ribbing 2 knit, 2 purl repeat across turn work another row of ribbing. Where the short rows turn is where the button fits into the headband to close it. This one has a mop button (mop = mother of pearl). Was easy to make less than a few hours. First time I did short rows didn’t know what they where called when I started out on this. I had to look it up for this post. I am enjoying learning to knit. I have a ways to go still to learn to make lace stockings like I want but I am on my way. I like ribbing much more than stockinet to knit at least there is a little bit of a change to keep the mind interested.
