Here and There Cables

Pattern: Here and There Cables by Norah Gaughan from Scarf Style edited by Pam Allen
Yarn: Arucania Naturewool, three skeins, I lost the ball bands, and I don't remember what the color number is. The pattern called for a more yarn than I used; I just knit until I ran out. It's about five and a half feet long.

Panta Headband

Pattern: Panta headband from
Here is the version I used, with the following changes: I subtracted two inches from my head measurement, and I knitted the widest section for only 3 1/2". I did the decreases in the middle of each section instead of at the edge. I thought I was going to run out of yarn, but I didn't. I was able to make it tight enough to stay on and not flare, but loose enough to not mat down the hair too much. The pictures show it with either side out. I grafted the ends together so it's nearly invisible, and can be worn either way.

Yarn: Reynolds Harvest Tweed, color 08, one ball; I had about 3 yards left.
