Twisted Headband

I don't think I look that great in headbands, but I just had to try this one.  Check out Itmakesyousmile on Ravelry.  She has good directions and some examples.  I used my Brother 970 standard with ribber, but you could design your own==stockinette, tuck, fairisle, slip, etc.  I just didn't want to bother with a seam up the back.
Here's the skinny on the one I made:
(I made the smaller one, but next will make the larger.)
It knits up really fast and a little longer to twist and seam.  But, not too bad.  (That's a scan.  Looks much nicer in person, of course.)  If you have trouble with the twist, there are videos on Youtube.

Looks nice, Mar. I like the ribbed effect. Will have to give them a try...when I get some mojo back.

It would be a good one to get your mojo back because it goes so fast. Still can't figure out why my machine doesn't like 2 x 2 or 3 x 3 rib... It will knit it, but makes a sound and is not as smooth as 1 x 1.
