Selfie of Síle wearing a mint green handknit star stitch headband.
Pattern: no pattern

Started: April 9, 2022

Finished: April 25, 2022

Made for: M. Flamel's Class on Alchemy & Beautifying the Ordinary/Síle aka Me

Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Worsted (60% Pima Cotton, 40% Modal; 75 yds = 50g)
  • 27g of "K895 Pistachio" = 40.5yds
Needle Size: 4.5mm/US 7

Notes & Photos:
April 9: I wanted to work a narrow swatch of Star stitch and this cotton was close to hand for a yarn. And then I thought "if I make this long enough it would make a pretty headband." And as the French say: Voilà!
So far:

April 13: Revamped slightly as it was a bit too narrow and prone to rolling. Am working over 13sts now; much better!

April 23: Haven't worked on this much but put in a good couple hours with it while watching a movie this *evening (*by evening I mean after 1am; oops). Should be done before the challenge ends

April 25 (1:27am NDT): Done :) It turned out nicely. Just need photos and to post in the thread :)
