The sock stitch is working out well as headband material.
First I reproduced the stitch combo that I used for socks:
but the simple stitch columns make the fabric significantly less stretchy.
Then I moved to straight sock stitch, which is kinda boring
and I didn’t finish the head band.
Then I moved to straight sock stitch,
except for a couple of rows of sock stitch, but extended upwards with a double-crochet top.
That worked out nicely and looks like this:
Nice, very nice!!
Especially if you live in a steamy climate zone, like myself.
This is the back of the head band–the join doesn’t look too bad:
And this is what it looks like on the inside:
You can see the double-crochet ventilation peeking through.
Good so far…
Next, I’m going to try it in worsted-weight yarn (rather than the DK I used here).
