The following was taken from my books Ethnic knitting exploration and Ethnic knitting discovery. These two books are currently on sale here for $30.00 + Free shipping (USA only).
This headband is a quick knit that will provide an introduction to knitting with two colors. Each headband offers practice working with one pattern stitch. If you make a headband in each pattern you plan to use in your sweater, you will have all the stitch patterns memorized—and a headband for every day of the week.
