HEAD BAND - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked back and forth from mid back and sewn together when finished.

HEAD BAND:
Cast on 30 stitches on needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Merino Extra Fine or Karisma. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH back and forth - read explanation above! Now work pattern as follows: Work A.1 (= 5 stitches on first row) 6 times in total on needle. After first row in A.1, 6 stitches has been increased in total = 36 stitches. When A.1 has been worked, work A.2 (= 6 stitches) over every repetition of A.1. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 26 cm, work a cable mid front on head band as follows: Slip the first 18 stitches on cable needle, work the remaining 18 stitches and then the 18 stitches on cable needle. Continue with pattern A.2 back and forth until piece measures approx. 49 cm/19 1/4" – adjust to finish after a whole repetition of A.2 vertically (approx. 3 cm / 1'' remain until finished measurements). Now work A.3 over every repetition of A.2. When A.3 has been worked, there are 30 stitches on row. Work 1 ridge over all stitches. Bind off. Sew head band together mid back by sewing one and one stitch inside cast-on edge and bind-off edge. Fasten off.
