My friend Cinda expressed interest in having a knitted headband, and you know what that means… pattern links were sent, a pattern was chosen, yarn was bought… and Calorimetry was born. This free Knitty.com pattern is shaped with short rows and secured with a button. Don’t you love how this is shaped like a set of big juicy lips? If it was knit in red instead of charcoal grey, it would be even smoochier! The designer urges knitters to choose a springy yarn that will bounce back after being stretched. This yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, a blend of merino, microfibre, and cashmere. It is deliciously soft, very smooth (it would look sooooo great in cables), and super sproingy. See?
I hope Cinda likes this – I’ll try to get a photo of her wearing it. If I make this again (for S1, perhaps), I’ll probably make it narrower. It’s a bit bonnet-y at its current size.
