Anticonformity Short Row Headband Pattern


I liked the shape of the calorimetry but really wanted it more just for wearing on my head to cover my hair not to keep my heat in my head, and thought it would be really nice in a lace, so this is what I came up with.
***UPDATED ON 5/10/2009******** Sorry guys that it took me so long to fix this. I have been busy. I think I figured out what the problem is. The stitch pattern called for those K1's and P1's but because I had the edge before the markers I ommitted them, but when I wrote up the pattern I forgot that part. So now you should start with 74 on row 3 you will knit 4 before starting the pattern and 70 is divisible by two. If you have anymore problems email me and I will see to them when I get back from Guyana.
Supplies:
Size 8 needles
Worsted Weight Yarn
Button

Cast on 74 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit to the last 2 sts, turn
Row 3: Slip 1, K3, Place Marker, *yo, slip 1 wyib, K1, psso* repeat from * to * to the last 2 sts. Turn.
Row 4: Slip 1, K3, Place Marker, *yo, slip 1 wyif, P1, psso* repeat from * to * 1 stitch before stitch marker. Turn.
Row 5: Remove marker, Slip 1, K3, Place Marker, *yo, slip 1 wyib, K1, psso* repeat from * to * to 1 stitch before marker, K1. Turn
Row 6: Remove marker, Slip 1, K3, Place Marker, *yo, slip 1 wyif, P1, psso* repeat from * to * to 1 stitch before marker, P1. Turn
Repeat rows 5&6 5 more times (10 more rows total) You can continue in the same manner for a wider head band or stop and reverse early for a narrower one. End after a row 6.
Row 7: Slip 1, *yo, slip 1 wyib, K1, psso* repeat from * to * to 1 stitch before marker, K1. Remove marker, K4, Place Marker. Turn.
Row 8: Slip 1, *yo, slip 1 wyif, P1, psso* repeat from * to * to 1 stitch before marker, P1. Remove marker, K4, Place Marker. Turn.
Repeat rows 7&8 until only 2 stitches remain outside the markers on each end.
Row 9: Knit across removing marker.
Row 10: Knit across removing marker.
Bind Off.
Attach a button and use one of the holes already in the pattern for button hole.
Weave in all ends and enjoy.
Make one for yourself or a friend but please don't sell them. If you want to share the pattern share the link and not the pattern itself. Happy Knitting!

This is perfection! The shape of this headband is so flatering and it appears to be more comfortable than your normal headband in the summer heat. In California I could probably wear this all winter as well. Have you thought of selling some of your creations on Ebay? Especially if you already have a yarn stash, it may be a way to earn a little extra cash.

Your talent is a gift from God! I love this headband but I unfortunately live with Alopecia Areata. Im not a big fan of wigs so light weight hats and headcovers are my thing. I think this pattern would be awesome as a snood but I'm clueless as to how to finish it off and keep it secure on my head. Any suggestions?

I can't wait to try this! You are awesome... :)

I love this! I got the yarn for calorimetry but I haven't knitted it yet because I was hoping to find a more flattering variation. This lace pattern looks like just the thing! Thanks!

I'm a beginner knitter and I don't think I fully understand placing markers and turning, because of the 76 stitches I started with I only have 22 on my needle now. I'm not sure what i've done wrong, but I'll keep trying. This is such a cute headband!

Yay!! I did it! This is a great pattern and I can't wait to try again!! The yarn I had was pretty heavy and the needles were a little small, but the end result was great. Good for when its a little chillier out. Thank you!

Thank you, pretty girl! I'm a beginner and this is so pretty and feminine. Just what I wanted.

Okay, I LOVE this pattern. However, I've restarted it several times, and I always have the same problem. At the end of row 3, instead of only having 2 stitches left, I have three. So, what I did, was do an extra K1, and that seemed to be okay until I got past the halfway point, ans was beginning to move the markers out again. Then the lace pattern becomes misaligned, as I have an odd number of stitches between the markers. I'm sure I'm missing something totally obvious, but could someone help me figure out what it is?

Mindy, the very same thing happened to me. I hope Kody May will take a look at it, because I really would like to make this. Here's how I figure it: You have 74 sts cast on. In row 3, you do 5 stitches before you start the *'s. So we have 74-5= 69 stitches. At the end of row 3, we don't do the last 2 stitches, so 69-2=67. Then we have the sets of 2 sts between the *'s. Sixty-seven isn't divisible by 2 for the sets of 2 stitches, so Houston, we got a problem.
