This is the yarn label.
This is one of the headbands I made. It's a turquoise colour for my youngest daughter.
It's an easy pattern and you can make it with any chunky yarn. I made one with 20 stitches but Maili liked the one I made using 18 stitches better. The pattern I used stated that you make the cable in the front after knitting straight (in stocking stitch) for 10.5 inches but I tried it on my own head while I was making it and 10 inches was enough. The looseness of the yarn and stitches gives it enough stretch and I didn't want it falling off.
This is what happens at night when light hits it. The yarn is woven with reflective thread and hopefully, will alert night drivers that there is a person under there. I have made arm bands for the male members of the family and I have more yarn to make more headbands or arm bands. The yarn comes in lots of different colours - bright orange, lime green, gray, black, off white, etc. so there is something for everyone's taste. Since it's a chunky yarn, the knitting (or crocheting) will go quickly.
Here's a shot of my knitting basket for the past couple of months.
As you can see, the flash from the camera lit up the reflective yarns.
