My first FO post - Dream Swatch Headwrap

I'm very happy to post my finished Dream Swatch Headwrap. The pattern is free, and you can find it at Knit & Tonic. Thanks Wendy for such a great pattern!

The yarn is Classic Elite Premiere 50%/50% Pima Cotton/Tencel blend; color is seafoam, I'll have to check for the number. It photographed a little bluer than it really is, the wall is robin's egg blue (behind the chair.) I used size 6 needles, one (leftover) skein of yarn, and had it finished in over a week of (very!) lazy knitting. Have I mentioned I've been knitting for almost 4 years now! And this was my first cable... sort of makes me think I need to learn a little more!

I modified the pattern slightly, by using only 3 repeats of the modified-dropped-cable, instead of four; I wanted it skinny! I liked the pattern so much - I had it memorized after only one cable! - that I've already started another one! The second is black microspun with 10 cable repeats, and I'm hoping to make it at least 36" before fringe, although with only 2 balls, we'll see if it makes it there!

  1. This looks great! I love it...I usually don't wear headbands, but seeing how nice yours came out, I had to go and print out that pattern.
