I’ve very pleased to announce that my second promised Pay-It-Forward item has been completed and is in the mail.
Collegeknitting will soon be the proud owner of a Greta Headband.
Collegeknitting mentioned this pattern in a review of the Summer 2012 issue of Interweave Knits. She said:
I like the detailing on this one, and if I ever have a reason to make a knitted headband, this will probably be it. The stitch pattern and gathered (twisted?) detail will probably keep it pretty interesting. It’s certainly a step up from a simple garter stitch band, which is what I’ve had to do in the past.
As you’ll see when you receive the headband, the twisty look is created using a small plastic loop as part of the construction.
This headband is knitted in Rowan Creative Linen (50/50 cotton/linen). It starts out pretty soft and should get even softer over time. I knitted Gemini with this yarn and can report that it loooves a good agitating in the washer.
Next up is the third prize winner: Anastasia Wright from For the Knit of It. I’ll be reading your blog carefully to find just the right Pay It Forward gift for you.
