Quhirl – KDD & Co

It’s no secret that I like a headscarf.

Hap for Harriet

Once I had lengthy hair, I discovered headbands a extremely helpful method of holding my basic furry messiness in test. With a brief crop, headbands are positively extra a matter of including a wee little bit of quantity to my heid and a few color and selection to what I’m carrying. Accessorising an outfit with headband is enjoyable!

Puppies like headbands too . . .

So I believed I’d make a easy twisty headband out of Ooskit . . .

This headband is fashioned of two knitted strips, every with a slipped sew edging and a textured look that’s fashioned by a slender twisted sew motif.

The 2 bands are solid on provisionally, knitted to the size desired, twisted round each other, earlier than being joined along with a 3 needle bind off.

The impact is that of a quite simple, braided crown.

I’ve tried to knit fairly just a few headbands in my time, lots of which haven’t been terribly profitable as a result of they’ve proved tough to suit. You don’t need it too tight, however you don’t need it to slide off, and it must retain some stretch. This headband is very easy to knit to the size you need it, retains its elasticity (because of the twisting) and is super-simple to suit to heids of any measurement with precisely the suitable the quantity of (unfavourable) ease.

In Scots, Quhirl is a phrase utilized to many encirling, whirly issues, from millstones to spindles . . . and now to headbands too! An excellent-quick weekend knit, Quhirl works up speedily, and may be whirled up and in your heid in just some hours. It’s a sample that’s nice for utilizing up small portions of yarn, and I hold considering of how a lot enjoyable a two-shade Quhirl could be. I need to make that occur.

So, the Quhirl sample’s on Ravelry and in the KDD store and we’ve got kits out there too (from which you may make a number of Quhirls).

For varied causes, I’m not at my desk for a part of subsequent week, so our forthcoming Friday sample will probably be delayed simply a few days till Sunday (twenty eighth). I appear to not have reached the top of my twisted sew kick simply but, so pictures and sample modifying allowing, there could also be only a wee bit extra to come back from this collection after that . . .

Have an important weekend!
