So I couldn’t help it. I had to take a sanity break from my big brown afghan. I decided to cast on for a Calorimetry headband, just to give myself something new to stare at for a day or two. Now I know why so many people have made them. They’re a quick knit, and as soon as you figure out what’s happening with the short rows, it’s very easy to do.
I tend to go a long time between haircuts and my bangs are always in my eyes. I have trouble with traditional plastic hair bands like you can buy in drug stores and accessory shops, because they’re always a smidge too small for my fat head and they squeeze my brain and give me a headache. Regular stretchy cloth ones are also no good if they’re equally thick all the way around, because they won’t stay secured at the back and bottom of my head.
So the short row design of this one seems like just the thing. I’m doing this one as written so I can see how close I came to getting the size right, but then my very next one will be an in the round version with no finishing, once I’ve figured out the sizing. These can get addictive! Must finish and get back to the blanket.
