2. Introduction: - All right, - so let's talk about some of the interesting techniques that we're gonna be using to knit up - thes two headbands. - All right, - so with this head band, - this is called the mock rib turban because it kind of looks like a turban and the fabric - that, - you know, - you get with this stitches really stretchy, - so you can actually stretch this pretty wide over your head. - So this stitch is made up with something called a mistake rib. - And it's a really easy stitch pattern and let me show you how to do it. - And both of these patterns use very simple stitches. - So this is made with what's called mistake rib. - And this this turban is made using, - or this headband is made using a net three pearl to stitch patterns. - So really easy. - The only kind of difficult parts happen at the beginning and the end. - So at the beginning, - we're casting on using something called the Provisional Cast on, - and the provisional cast on basically gives us live stitches so that we can grab them to - the end of our work in a really nice seamless join. - So both of these headbands used the provisional cast onto cast on, - and they both use what's called Kitchener Stitch too. - Join the two ends together. - So these air two really important techniques, - that kind of, - you know, - book and this pattern the beginning. - In the end, - everything in between is quite simple. - It with the single twist headband. - We've got this big central twist here, - and you're gonna learn how to do this with a stitch holder with the mock mock turban you're - gonna use, - you know, - very simple technique to make this central band right here. - So you might be wondering why, - Headbands, - Why now? - All right, - well, - headbands air kind of experiencing a bit of a comeback. - They're kind of trendy right now, - and I'm really happy about that because they're a great accessory and they're really - versatile as well. - So, - for example, - you can get up a head band in, - like a really bright color, - and it could be a really cool statement piece or an accent color to your outfit or, - you know, - it can be something that you wear after your workout. - It could be a post workout accessory. - If you need it up in cotton, - you know you can use that after you workout to keep the hair out of your face or, - you know, - to keep the sweat out of your eyes or whatever. - You know, - a headband can be whatever you want it to be, - whatever you make it. - You know, - you can also just wear it around the house for a spa day when you're feeling kind of kicky - and you want a cool accessory while you're having a facial or whatever. - So you know, - headbands can be, - you know, - incorporated into your lifestyle. - However you choose, - right, - it can be a fun accessory that really brings out your outfit. - Or it could be something that you wear, - you know, - when you're exercising or when you're just relaxing at home. - So that's why I love headbands and why I think you should be knitting one here with me. 3. Materials: - So the yard weight that we want for this pattern is gonna be an Aaron. - Wait. - Now, - when Aaron Weight is a little bit heavier than worsted weight, - and I've chosen this year and wait because it's a little bit fluff year than a than a - worsted weight. - And I like that it gives you a little bit of luxurious feel to the headbands. - So they are that I'm using. - In the samples is KPC yarn, - and this is a totally new yarn line in Hong Kong, - which is great local business and specifically just four skill share users. - KPC yarn has offered a discount a 10% discount. - So all you need to do is enter skill share at the check out when you buy any yarn at KPC - yarn. - Okay, - so this is their noble Marino Aaron, - and I'm using the color way ivory for the mock turban headband. - Okay, - so I'm using an air and wait, - and the recommended needle size is a 5.5 millimeter. - But of course, - if you know anything about gauge, - you may not be using 5.5 millimeter. - You may be using a five or a six, - depending on what you used to get gauge, - so the fiber content for the yarn that you're using it can really depend on what season you - want to be wearing your headbands in. - So, - for example, - if you want your head bands in the spring and the summer, - you know, - maybe you want to wear it around town with like a tank top. - You know it's a good idea to choose a cotton weight yarn or even a bamboo that's really - nice for summer. - It's also really light weight, - so it won't kind of slip down your head a little bit. - So I like those two fibers for summer and spring. - Now, - if you're knitting this in the winter, - you can go for a really you know, - dramatic color is really dark, - rich colors, - and you could also choose something like a wool or wool blend. - So, - like a wool alpaca blend is really pretty. - Alpaca is a little bit heavier, - so you know you might be experiencing a little bit of drooping on your headband. - But it could be really pretty as well. - So, - you know, - think about when you want to be wearing your headbands and for what purpose and that will - help you determine what kind of fiber you want to be using. - Now, - some of the other things that you're going to need in addition to your yarn and your - needles are some notions. - So one of the things you'll need is a tapestry needle and a tapestry needle just looks like - a giant needle. - And we're gonna be using this to weave in our ends and also just seem our work together. - All right, - so another thing that we're gonna need is a stitch holder, - and we're gonna use this for our single twist headband. - When we're making the twist in her headband, - we're going to be putting some of the stitches that we're not using on this stitch holder - and a stitch holder just kind of looks like this. - It kind of unhooks. - You can put your stitches on it and then hook it back in so that your stitches don't fall - off. - And you know, - this basically keeps your stitches while you're doing other stuff with your knitting. - Okay, - so you don't actually have to have a stitch holder. - You don't have to go out and buy one. - You can just use, - you know, - a double pointed needle to keep your stitches in place or some scrap yarn 4. Single-Twist Headband: Creating the Provisional Cast On: - first things first, - we're going to start with the provisional cast on. - Now to do the provisional cast on, - you're going to need a crow. - Shea hook. - Okay, - so what we're gonna do is we're going to make a slip knot, - so we're gonna make a loop. - Bring your urine in the back, - pull that through. - And here is our slipknot. - So we're gonna put this on our crash a needle like this, - and then tighten it up. - Okay? - Now, - before I forget, - what you want to do is to make a not at the end of this yarn strand where we began our, - um, - began our crow shaking. - Right. - So the end, - where are Slipknot is just want to make a little not there. - And that'll help us later on in our head band. - Okay, - so you got your slip. - Not you've got You're not down here. - And what we're gonna do is we're gonna take the yarn that's attached to our ball, - and we're just going to take our crash a needle and go underneath it underneath that yarn - and pull it through the slip. - Not that we just made, - So my fingers are kind of holding this slip. - Not here, - Okay. - Holding it in place. - And we're just gonna chain on about Let's say, - like, - 35. - OK, - so we're going to just continue going behind our yarn and pulling it through the loop that - we make just like this. - So this would be called chaining in crow shade jargon. - So we're changing on about 35. - 36. - Okay, - more than 30 because 30 is the number of stitches that we need to cast on. - So let's continue doing this. - All right? - And I haven't actually been keeping count, - so let's just count up how many we've got here. - These look like little knit stitches, - don't they? - So here we go. - We're just gonna count them. - 1234567 89 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 1920 2122. - So we've got 22 23 4 25 26 27 28 29 30. - All right, - so we're gonna cast on a few more. - So 123 Poopsie, - Poopsie. - Three. - So 33 33 34 35. - Let's just do 36. - Okay, - Great. - So that is enough chains for this particular pattern. - And now that I've got about 36 on, - I'm just going to cut my yarn like this, - and I'm going to just take this yarn strand wrapping around and pull it through this chain - that I made and there's not here, - so it's gonna be a little bit tricky getting that through. - Here we go. - Is it through? - No. - Okay, - that's fine. - We're just gonna cut off this, - Not we don't have to deal with it. - Great. - So I should mention that this pink yarn is actually scrapyard. - Okay, - this is not your in that you're actually going to be using when you are knitting your - headband. - Okay, - so any scrap yard will do. - It's great if it's a contrast in color than you know, - the yarn that you're using for your headband. - All right, - so now what we're gonna do is we're gonna take our needle that we're gonna be knitting with - , - and also the yarn that we're going to be knitting with. - So for me, - I'm using this really nice green yarn from KPC yarn. - The color way is para Keach. - So it contrasts really nicely with this waster, - and I don't have to worry about, - you know, - getting the two mixed up. - All right, - so let's start casting on so you can see on this crash a chain that I've made that there is - you know, - , - the side with the nits on it, - right? - There's these little V's that you can see right here. - And then when you turn the chain around, - you can see that there's, - you know, - the back side of it. - You've got these little bumps, - right? - These little you know, - little bumps. - So what we're gonna do is we're actually going to cast on our stitches into these little - bumps. - Pretty crazy, - right? - Okay, - so we're Let's get started. - I'm gonna take my chain, - and you can see this little bump here, - right? - So we're gonna put our needle through it so we don't want to start on the, - you know, - the first bump. - We want to start on a stitch that's a little bit further down. - So here we go. - Here's a bump, - and I'm gonna put my needle through it, - and then I'm gonna take my yarn that I'm actually knitting my headband with, - and I'm just gonna loop that around my needle, - okay? - and then I'm gonna pull it through the crow Shea loop just like that. - Okay. - So you can see that there are a lot of these little bumps that air coming down, - this crash a chain, - and I'm going to do the exact same thing that I just did. - I'm gonna take my needle and go through this little crow Shea bump like this. - Is it all the way through? - Yeah, - I think so. - And I'm going to take my yarn that I'm using to knit my headband with, - and I'm just gonna nit into it. - So I think I might have not gotten the full bump. - Here we go. - So there were just going to knit into these little crow Shea bumps. - All right, - we're gonna go down our chain to do it. - So here's our next one, - and I'm gonna put my needle through. - And for this pattern, - I am casting on 30 stitches, - so I need to go into these crow Shea bumps 30 times with my with my urine. - So here we go. - I've got four and I've got five here. - Five and six. - Here we go. - Six and seven. - So we're gonna do this 30 times, - All right? 5. Single-Twist Headband: Knitting 3x2 Rib: - All right, - So now that you've got 30 cast on stitches on your needle, - we are ready to start knitting the single twist headband. - All right, - cool. - So let's look at our pattern. - Now. - Our pattern says that we need to slip one stitch. - So here we go. - I've just slipped one stitch, - and then we need to knit three pearl to, - so because I've just slipped my first stitch, - I'm only gonna be knitting two stitches. - Okay, - so here we go. - These three stitches count as a net three, - even though we just slipped this first stitch. - Okay, - so now we're gonna do a pearl two, - and we're just gonna repeat this across the whole row, - so we're doing in it three, - and we're gonna do a pearl two, - and we're going to do on that three and a pearl two. - So this is the stitch pattern, - the main stitch pattern, - you know, - for the single twist headband. - It's really not that difficult. - Hard things happen at the beginning and the end and in the middle. - But everything in between is just knitting three and pearling too. - So we've already, - you know, - finished our first hurdle, - which was the provisional cast on. - So we've only got, - you know, - to Mork Hurdles to jump through. - Okay, - so this is our net three, - pearl two. - And we're almost at the end of our first row. - Here is a net three and a pearl, - too. - Great. - What's did not pearl that one. - So here we go. - Pearling this one. - Okay, - so I'm gonna pull down on this, - you know, - loosed loose strand of yarn to keep it nice and tight. - And I'm gonna turn over my work, - and we're going to do a net. - Three pearl, - too. - So this is a really easy stitch pattern. - You just need to remember to slip your first stitch like this. - And the reason why we slip it is so that we can get a really nice clean edge. - Now, - this is gonna be sitting on your head, - right? - This headband. - So you want a nice edge on it? - You want to look really neat. - All right, - so now we just don't know it, - too, - And we're going to continue and do a Pearl three. - Okay? - So when you look at this pattern, - you know, - you it basically tells you what to do. - Okay, - So you're gonna be knitting your knit stitches and pearling your Purl stitches. - So you don't need to be remembering any kind of fancy stitch pattern. - You can see. - We've got three Purl stitches here from these little bumps, - right that represent Purl stitches. - So you would pearl into them. - All right, - so pearl into your Purl stitches and knit into your net stitches. - You've got two knit stitches right here, - right? - You can tell by these little V shapes. - So we're just gonna nip into these whips knit into these knit stitches and again, - three Purl stitches. - So we're gonna pearl into them. - And then after that, - you've got two knit stitches right here. - So we're gonna need into those, - right? - So this is pretty much you know what your stitch pattern is gonna be like. - So if we look at her pattern, - it says that we're gonna be repeating these two rows 48.5 inches. - All right, - so that is quite a bit of knitting, - but you're just going to be, - you know, - doing this very simple stitch pattern of a net three pearl chew, - turning over and doing a knit two Purl three until your piece measures 8.5 inches, - at which point we are going to work the single twist. - All right, - so do this for 8.5 inches, - remembering to slip your first stitch and then meet me back here and we will do the single - twist together. 6. Single-Twist Headband: Knitting the Twist: - So when your piece measures 8.5 inches, - then we're ready to work the twist. - All right, - so what we're gonna do is we're going to slip our first stitch, - and then we're going to knit the next 14 stitches in pattern. - So here we go. - We're just going to be knitting are knits and pearling are pearls, - and we're also gonna be on the right side of our fabric. - So that means that, - you know, - the net three Pearl Pearl to is going to be facing us. - Okay, - so let's do this. - Let's knit 14 more stitches. - So now we've knit a total of 15 stitches were basically at the center of our work. - So we're going to do now is get our stitch holder involved now are stakeholder. - It looks like this, - and we're just gonna unhook it, - and we're gonna put the next 15 stitches of the, - you know, - on our left needle on a stitch holder. - Here we go. - I'm just gonna take my stitch holder and put these stitches onto it. - Now, - if you don't have a stitch holder, - you can just put these on a piece of scrap yarn. - You know, - using a tapestry needle. - Or, - you know, - you can use a double pointed needle. - Just get the stitches off your needle and keep them secure. - That's pretty much the point of a stitch holder. - Cool. - So now I have got my 15 you know, - stitches on a stitch holder. - And now what we're gonna do is we are going to turn our work around so that the wrong side - of our fabric, - it's facing us. - And then we're gonna work these 15 stitches in three by two rib for 15 more rose, - and we're gonna have to slip the first stitch just as we've been doing. - All right. - So let's do that now, - The way that I keep track of how many, - you know, - stitches that I've net is I actually just mark down, - you know, - on my pattern. - Every time I finish knitting a row, - I'll just do like a mark on my pattern so that I remember how many rows that I've done. - So I would suggest that you do that too, - so that you can keep track of how many rows unit. - So let slip the first stitch and we're going to knit the second stitch and pearl, - the pearls and in minutes, - just as we've been doing all along. - Except that we're doing it on half of the stitches that we've got. - All right, - All right, - here we go. - So I just finished my first row, - and I'm gonna turn my work around. - And I'm also gonna mark down on my pattern that I've knit one row, - so let's continue knitting for 15 rows. - All right, - so now you've net 15 rows in pattern on this side of your fabric, - which is great, - and you ended up on a right side. - Okay, - so you just finished working a wrong side, - and now you're back on the right side. - That's great. - So we're going to do now is we're just gonna cut this length of yarn. - So let's cut maybe about 8 to 10 inches like that. - Great. - And now we're gonna put these stitches that we've just knit onto another stitch holder. - So here we go. - I'm just going to take my stitch holder and put it, - Put my stitches right onto it, - just like this. - Okay? - And here we go. - Great. - All right, - so now these air nice and secure, - and then I'm going to take the stitches on this stitch holder and put them back on my - needle. - So now we're going to be working these stitches. - So here we go. - I'm just going to pop them onto my needle. - Here we go. - Okay. - And we're basically going to be doing the exact same thing that we just did on the other - side. - We're going to be knitting this this side of our work in pattern for not 15 rows, - but for 16 rows. - All right, - so now my stitches air off the stitch holder and onto my needle. - So here we go. - I've slipped the first stitch, - and now I'm gonna join my yard. - Great. - Okay. - So you don't forget to slip your stitches even when we're knitting these little central - panel right here. - Going to be knitting our nets and pearling are pearls as we did on the other side. - All right, - so we're gonna do this for 16 stitches, - and again, - it's a good idea to mark down every time you finish a row so you can keep track of how many - roads that you've done. - All right, - so you've net 16 stitches on this side of your fabric, - and you ended on a wrong side row, - which means that you are ready to work a right side row. - So you're working. - Urine should be coming off of your You know, - this side of the work right here. - Okay, - cool. - So if this is what your you know your work looks like, - then you are ready to do the twist. - Okay, - So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take this side of our fabric, - and we're just gonna bring it over to this side of our work. - Now, - we're gonna tighten up the stitches a little bit here, - and I'm gonna undo my stitch marker or my stitch holder. - And I'm gonna transfer these stitches here to this needle. - So I'm on a double pointed needle right now, - which makes things a lot easier. - If you're not on a double pointed needle, - you may have to transfer your stitches first to another needle and then make the transfer - to your main needle. - Okay, - So I'm just going to take my needle and just bring these live stitches over to this needle - . - We're just transferring it over. - Okay, - here we go. - And make sure you don't drop any stitches, - and there we go. - So now all of my stitches are securely on my needle, - and we have successfully rejoined our work together. - Pretty cool, - Right? - So here, - you can see this big central twist. - Awesome. - All right, - so now we've got our working yarn right at the beginning of our work, - and we are just gonna continue knitting in our pattern until, - you know, - our peace measures 8.5 from this point from the join upwards. - OK, - so we want a nice even, - you know, - even looking head bent. - So we're just gonna slip or for a stitch. - All right, - net one. - That, - too. - And Pearl two. - All right, - so we're just gonna keep on knitting in our pattern as we did when we cast on until our - peace measures 8.5 inches from the central twist. - So right from here. - Okay, - so let's do this rope. - And when we reach the central part, - we're just going to knit across it, - Okay? - Like it? - You know, - like, - there's nothing out of the ordinary. - We're just going to knit into it. - Right, - So here we go. - This is ah, - where we joined. - And we're just gonna nip into this stitch, - okay? - And you might have to kind of pull on the strands of yarn at the back just to make sure the - stitches, - you know, - secure and not falling out. - All right, - But that's pretty much bitch. - Now we have joined both of these pieces together so that they're now one piece instead of - two separate pieces. 7. Single-Twist Headband: Rejoining the Twist: - So now we're ready to seem up our headband in Kitchener Stitch. - Now, - this is slightly complicated, - so bear with me. - But when you're done, - you're gonna have a really nice seem. - Okay, - So what we're gonna do is first, - we're going to take off. - Um, - you know, - this crow Shea edge from our stitches so that we can have live stitches that we can put on - to our needle. - All right, - so we're not going to unravel from the end with are not This is the end where we started - our slipknot, - and we don't want to use that end. - We're going to unravel from the end. - That has no, - not so I'm just going to Let's see, - I'm going to undo the knot right here, - and we're going to do this really carefully. - This yarn is a little bit split, - E. - So we're just gonna be really careful unraveling this Not right here. - All right. - Perfect. - So now I'm just gonna turn my work so that I can you know more easily pick up these - stitches. - They don't want to drop any of these ditches, - so I'm just gonna pull this this waste yarn through first, - and then I'm gonna pick up this stitch and pick up the second stitch, - all right? - And then I'm going to continue to pull off this crow. - She edge and pick up stitches as I go along. - Here we go. - I'm gonna would go really slowly because I don't want any of these stitches to fly off or - to get lost. - All right, - so here we go. - There we go. - Going to continue taking off this cruciate edge and whips. - Here we go. - Keep picking up these stitches, - and we're gonna do a stitch count at the end to make sure that we actually, - you know, - we have retrieved all of these stitches. - Okay? - And there we go. - Great. - So we've picked up all of our stitches, - and sometimes that ends up happening. - But this is our waste urine. - So it doesn't really matter, - you know, - if we snip it off. - Great. - So now we can just throw our waste yarn aside. - And all of our lives stitches are on our needle. - 2468 10 12 14 16 18 2022 24 26 28 30. - Perfect. - So that's the exact number of stitches that we have on this needle. - Great. - So now we can start seaming this together. - Okay, - Now, - because we're seeming, - you know, - we're not seeming stock in that stitch. - Were seeming kind of a rib stitch. - We have to do something a little bit funny. - So we're gonna put all of our stock Annette stitches. - So all of our knit stitches on one needle and all of our Purl stitches on another needle. - So here we go. - I've got some extra needles here, - and I'm just gonna throw my stocking it or my knit stitches on one needle and my Purl - stitches on another. - So here we've got some Purl stitches, - and I'm going to keep them here, - and I've got some knit stitches following it. - So I am going to take thes knit stitches and put them on a separate needle. - All right, - so here's knit stitches. - Here are Purl stitches. - You can see these little bumps, - right? - So I'm gonna take these Purl stitches right off my needle. - Okay. - And here are some units. - Did you So I'm gonna take these nist stitches onto my needle whips. - Here we go. - Mitt. - Stitches. - Here we go. - Here are knit stitches. - So we've got, - you know, - a needle full of knit stitches, - and we're gonna have a needle full of Purl stitches. - So here we go. - I'm gonna pick up these Purl stitches right here and then sew knit stitches when it - switches right here and a couple more Purl stitches and mourn its ditches. - So now our needle up front is full of knit stitches, - and our needle on the back is full of Purl stitches, - as you can see. - So we're going to do the same thing on this needle. - All right, - So I'm gonna turn my work around right over here, - and we're gonna do the same thing, - Except we need another needle. - So I'm going to get another needle over here, - and we're gonna use this needle. - Teoh, - help us get our stitches organized. - So we've got knit stitches here, - so I'm gonna get my net stitches on this needle on the front needle, - and I'm going to put the Purl stitches on my back Needle like this. - So here we go. - Continue doing that. - Knit stitches on my front needle and Purl stitches on my back needle 8. Single-Twist Headband: Seaming with the Kitchener Stitch : - So what we're gonna do is we're going to start using the Kitchener Stitch to seem together - are knit stitches. - So we're gonna seem together, - are knit stitches right over here. - And once we've done seeming them, - we're gonna turn our work around like this, - and then we're going to seem the Purl stitches together at the back with Kitchener Stitch. - Now, - the reason why we do this is because Kitchener Stitch is great for seeming stock in that - stitch together. - So when you look at the front of our work, - we have a bunch of knit stitches together. - And when we seem it with stock in its stitch or with Kitchener Stijn a look really nice and - neat. - And when we turn our work around on the other side, - you can see that the backside of a Purl stitch is a knit stitch. - So the reason why we turn our work around is because when we're seeming Kitchener Stitch in - the back, - it will have a nice edge as well, - because we're seeming Nitze dishes. - Essentially. - All right, - so let's get started. - Okay, - let's work on the front side of our work first, - and let's see, - where are our yarn is coming out from the Pearl side. - So we don't want that we wanted start knitting. - We want to start seeming on our our front side first. - So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna get a length of yarn, - Just start a new ball of yarn and I'm gonna get my tapestry needle out, - okay? - And then we're going to start seeming great. - So I'm going to cut a length of yarn. - That's maybe gonna be about, - like, - two feet long or maybe three feet long. - Let's say longer the better. - Okay? - And we're just going to start seeming so we should have the same number of stitches on our - front needle. - So let's count. - 2468 10 12 14 16 18 2468 10 12 14 16 18. - Perfect. - All right. - So with my threat of yarn, - I'm going to go into my first stitch over here, - and I'm going to go in as if I'm gonna pearl. - So I'm gonna go in from the top to the bottom, - okay? - Just like that. - I'm gonna pull that length of yarn through, - and it's gonna be pretty long, - but when we seem we wanna you know, - we want to keep the yarn quite long. - Okay, - so here we go. - I'm just going to pull my yarn through, - and that's about right. - Okay, - so now I'm gonna go to the back of my stitch, - and I'm gonna go into it as if I'm going to Niche. - All right. - So I'm gonna bring my needle, - and I'm gonna bring it through from the bottom to the top like this. - Okay, - So I'm just basically, - we're just sewing right now. - We're sewing two themes together. - Great. - So now what I'm going to do is I'm going to go into the front of my needle than to the - first stitch on the front of my needle and I'm gonna push my needle down so that my - stitches air closer to the edge of my tip of my needle. - I mean, - to go into my first stitch, - as if I'm going to knit it. - Okay, - so here we go. - This may be kind of confusing, - but, - you know, - it'll, - um, - it'll make sense in due time. - Okay, - So I'm gonna nit into or put my needle in as if I'm going to knit. - And once I've done that, - I'm just gonna pop this right off of my needle. - Gonna pop that stitch off, - Okay? - I'm just gonna drop it off my needle and pull, - Okay? - So next What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go into the next itch on my front needle as if I'm - going to Pearl. - So from the top to the bottom, - And I'm just going to pull that thread through, - get some of this extra stuff out of the way, - okay? - Make sure it's nice and tight, - and then I'm gonna go into the back of my needle or back of my yet back of my needle into - this stitch, - and I'm gonna go in as if I'm gonna Pearl. - So I'm going to go from the top to the bottom of this stitch, - okay? - And I'm just gonna thread my yarn through like that, - and then I'm gonna pop that stitch off the needle, - okay? - And then I'm just gonna pull tight to make sure it's secure, - all right? - And then I'm gonna take my needle and go into the stitch on the back of my needle as if I'm - going to knit. - All right. - And you're going to get a rhythm on this, - Um, - So I'm gonna show you how to make this a little bit easier for yourself. - Okay, - so the front of our needle, - we're going to go in as if we're going to knit. - So when we go into the front of our needle as if we're gonna net, - we're going to drop that stitch right off of our needle. - So we're just gonna drop it right off, - right, - popping it off, - and then I'm gonna go into my next ditch on my front needle as if I'm going to Pearl. - But that stitch will stay on my needle. - OK, - so I'm just pulling it through right now, - and that's going to stay on my needle. - Now I'm going to go into the back of my needle and take and go in as if I'm gonna pearl. - So I'm going from the top to the bottom. - And once I go in as if I'm gonna pearl, - then I'm going to drop my stitch off the needle. - So when you pearl into the back stitch, - you always drop it off, - Okay? - And then after you drop it off, - you're going to knit into the stitch. - That is right after it. - on your back needle. - So I'm gonna bring it. - Bring my needle in as if I'm gonna niche into it. - Okay? - Like this. - And then I'm gonna go back to my front needle. - Okay? - I'm gonna go back into my friend needle, - and then I'm gonna go into the stitch as if I'm going to niche. - And once I do, - I'm gonna drop that off my needle. - So whenever I go into my front needle as if I'm going to knit, - I drop that stitch off my needle. - So we basically knit off on the front needle, - and then we pearl into the next stitch. - Okay, - So nit off on the front needle and pearl on. - So we're pearling our thread of yarn onto that stitch, - and then we move to the back needle on the back needle. - We're going to go into the stitch as if we're gonna pearl, - right? - So from top to bottom, - And when we pearl into our back stitch, - we always drop it off. - Okay, - Slowly. - And then right after that, - we're going to knit. - So we knit on on our back stitch and pearl off. - So that's something that you can try and remember okay, - that when you on your front stitch on this front stitch facing you, - you're going to knit off. - So we're going into this first stitch as if we're knitting, - okay, - we're gonna nit and then your stitches gonna come off, - sewn it off, - and right after you're going to Pearl on. - So you're gonna go into the following stitch as if you're gonna pearl, - and it's going to stay on, - all right. - And then you're gonna move to the back needle and you're going to Pearl into the stitch. - And whenever you pearl on your back needle, - you're gonna pop that stitch off. - So you're gonna pearl off on your back needle. - So you've just done a pearl Pearle wise into that stitch, - and you're gonna drop it off your needle and you're gonna nit on. - So you're gonna nit into this next stitch as if you were or you're gonna go into this next - . - It's as if you were going to knit into it. - Okay? - And that will stay on your needle. - So you Perloff and knit on on your back stitch and on your front stitch, - you pearl on and unit off. - So now we're going to knit off on our front needle. - Here we go. - We just did a knit into the stitch, - and we're gonna pop that stitch off. - Then we're gonna pearl into our next ditch. - Right, - Pearl on and on our back Stitch, - we're going to Pearl into this stitch, - and then we're gonna drop it off. - So we're gonna pearl off on our back needle and it on. - Okay, - so we're going in it wise right afterwards and on our front needle. - We're going to knit off. - Okay, - So here is our first star stitch on our front needle. - We are going to knit. - Whips got tangled up here. - So we're going to Here we go. - We're going to knit off, - so we just need into it, - and it's gonna come off or needle, - and we're gonna pearl on. - All right? - Great. - And now we're going to Pearl off on our back needle. - So we're gonna pearl inwards and pop that off our needle and then knit on on to our next - stitch, - and that's going to stay on right? - We're gonna do that again on our front stitch. - We're gonna niche off, - going knit wise. - Coming off. - We're in a pearl on right now on our back, - Stitch, - We're going to Pearl off, - going to Pearl into that stitch, - and it's gonna come off, - and we're going to knit on. - All right, - so here we go. - We have finished seeming the front side of our headband. - It looks pretty good. - I'd say pretty great. - But of course, - we need to do the back side as well. - And, - you know, - we've got this, - you know, - yarn, - yarn hanging out. - But we can just trim that off. - Will leave this in later on. - And now we're going to turn our work around, - and we've got these Purl stitches to deal with now, - right? - All right. - So we can basically seem these Purl stitches in the exact same way that we seemed the front - stitches because these are also stocking that stitch a swell. - So let's do that together again. - So I'm gonna get my yarn. - Ouch! - And I'm just going to thread it through. - Here we go. - And to start off, - I'm just gonna go into my front stitch, - and I'm gonna do a Purl stitch on this, - okay? - Simple Purl stitch on this, - and then I'm gonna go into my back needle and I'm going to do a knit stitch on this, - okay? - And this is kind of my set up, - bro, - and then we can start doing our Kitchener stitch. - So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go again into my first stitch, - and I'm gonna do a nit in it, - and we're gonna pop that needle off. - So we're gonna do a net off right on my front stitch on my front needle, - and we're gonna do a pearl on. - So we're gonna go in Pearl ways right on our front needle, - and we're gonna keep that owner needle, - and then we're gonna go pearl ways into my back Needle. - Here we go, - Pearl into our back, - the stitch on the back of our needle, - and then we're gonna pop that off. - Okay, - then we're going to go into the next stitch as if we were going to knit, - and then that's going to stay on the needle. - All right. - And then we're going to go into our front stitch. - And as if we were going to knit. - All right, - we're going to knit, - and then that goes off the needle. - So we're knitting off on our front needle and we're going to Pearl on. - Okay, - Pearl on. - Then we're going to go into our back needle, - and we're gonna pearl off, - going to Pearl in, - and then drop it off. - We're gonna go into our next ditch and Pearl on. - So it's the exact same as what we did on the front side of our headband. - And here is our last stitch on a friend needle. - We're going to knit off. - Great. - All right. - And then on our back needle, - we're going to Perloff. - Wonderful. - All right, - so here we go. - All of our needles are off of our work, - and we've got a ton of loose ends Teoh seem in, - but this is pretty much what you are seeing. - Looks like it looks pretty good. - It's not bad at all. - Okay, - so the inside of our seem is a little bit funkier. - OK, - a little bit funkier, - but it still seems in quite well. - And this is pretty much how you would seem. - Your headband. - Now, - of course, - you've got all of these, - you know, - crazy strands of yarn coming out all over the place. - And of course, - in order we don't actually want that. - You know, - hanging off of our headband. - So what we would do is we would just weave these strands in. - So we've got some coming out of our central are central twist right here. - So let's work on these, - Okay? - Basically, - weaving in is the same. - You know, - whether you're weaving in, - you know, - the sides or in the middle. - Basically, - what you would do is you get your tapestry needle and thread your yarn through it, - and then you would just, - you know, - go into the back of your work. - So this is the front of our headband. - We don't want to seem in there. - You want to see men at the back. - So we've got our threat of yarn here, - and I'm just gonna go into you know, - some of these Purl stitches here, - these little bumps and just camouflage. - You know, - your your your tail end of your yarn like this to kind of go in and out. - You know, - a couple times 45 times, - six times if you are feeling like you want it to be really, - really secure. - So once you've done that, - then you can just get your scissors out and snip it off. - That's it. - All right. - So you got a lot of tail ends a lot of things to weave in on this headband. - But once you do, - it'll look really great, - and you will be able to wear it out. - All right, - So get your hands on these. - You know, - these little ends we've them in, - and you will be finished with your headband, - and you could wear it out and have fun with it. 9. Mock-Turban Headband: Creating the Provisional Cast On and Mistake Rib: - Now we are going to knit the mock turban headband, - and the first thing that we need to do is cast on with the provisional Castan. - So we're gonna use some waste yarn, - which I've got here, - this pink yarn and a crow Shea hook. - Okay, - so we're going to start by doing a slip. - Not like this. - We're gonna make a loop, - go in, - grab that loop. - And we're gonna put our crash a needle into this loop, - and we're gonna tighten it up. - Okay? - So I'm going to keep one hand on my slip, - Not right here. - Okay? - I'm just gonna hold it firm. - And with the other hand, - I'm just going to, - you know, - hold the yarn, - the working yard like this. - Okay. - And then I'm gonna take Micro Shea Hook and go underneath it and just chain um, - about 30. - Let's say 30 chains, - OK? - Because for our for our pattern, - we need to cast on 27 stitches. - So I wanna have more than 27 chains on Micro Shea Hook. - So, - you know, - 30 32. - That's a good number. - Two chain. - Okay, - so here we go. - And let's see, - I haven't been keeping count. - So let's see, - we're in account these little V shapes. - OK, - that's gonna help us. - Keep count. - So 12345678 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 1920 All right, - let's keep going. - 2122 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33. - Okay, - great. - Now, - before I forget, - we need to tie a knot at the end. - Right here. - So this is the end of our slip. - Not right. - That's where a slip knot began. - So we're gonna tie and not here, - OK? - Just to remind ourselves we're gonna use this when we actually undo are cast on. - All right, - so this is, - you know, - enough chains. - So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna get my sister out and just leave a nice long tail, - snip it off and bring this yarn up. - Let's see, - bring it up to micro Shea Hook, - Take my chain that I made and bring it through, - OK? - And secure, - you know, - secure the chain right there. - Okay, - so if you look at you this crow Shea chain. - You could see that one side is made up of these, - right? - And if you turn it around, - you'll see that the other side is made up of these little bumps. - All right, - so what we want to do is we want to insert our needle into these bumps and it into them. - Um and that's how we're going to be casting on. - Okay, - so let's get started. - You can see these little bumps here. - I'm not gonna go into the first bump. - I'm gonna go into, - Let's say the third bump. - Okay, - So I'm gonna take my needle and go into one of these bumps, - and I'm gonna take the yarn that I'm working with. - And this yarn is KPC yarns in color way. - Ibori, - It's a Novoa. - Marino, - Erin, - wait Really nice. - Oops. - OK, - so I'm going to slide it onto my needle, - and then I'm going to take that yarn and bring it through the crow Shea loop like that. - And that's my first cast on stitch. - Okay, - so we're gonna do that again. - I'm going to go into this little bump right here, - and I'm going to knit into it with my yarn. - So here we go gonna nit into it like that. - Great. - And I'm going to continue going up my chain like this. - So we've got three, - and let's continue. - Here we go for and here we go. - Five and six. - Seven. - So now that we've cast on 27 stitches, - we can start knitting in mistake rib. - So mistake Rib is basically ah, - one pattern stitch. - It's really very, - very easy and has a really cool effect, - too. - So how you do mistake, - rib is we're first going to slip our first stitch, - okay? - And that's going to give us a nice clean edge on our headband. - So after that, - we're going to do a net one. - All right? - And then we're going to do a pearl two, - okay? - And after this, - we're just going to continue doing a knit two Purl two across our whole room. - All right. - Pretty easy. - And this this row that I've just mentioned just now that we're doing right now is going to - be repeated for the entirety of the headband. - All right, - so this is a really pretty easy stitch pattern to remember rate. - So you slip the first stitch than unit one. - Then you Pearl to. - And then you continue in new to Pearl to for the rest of the road. - Okay, - so here we go, - and it sounds pretty easy. - It sounds like you would just get a knit two Purl two rib. - But because we've cast on an uneven number of stitches, - the effect we get is actually very different and really very cool. - It looks a lot more complicated than it really should be. - All right. - So once we get to the last stitch, - what we're gonna do is we're just gonna pearl one. - Okay, - so we're gonna pearl one. - Whoopsie. - Here we go. - Let's tighten up this last stitch here, - tighten that up, - and then we're gonna pearl into the last ditch, - all right? - And we're just gonna repeat that first row. - All right, - We're gonna repeat that first row until we get 18 inches until our whole piece measures 18 - inches. - Right. - So shall we do that again? - Let's do slip the first stitch, - and then we're going to knit. - One hopes. - Let's do that properly. - We're gonna nit one. - Then we're gonna pearl two. - Here we go. - And then we're just going to repeat knit two Purl two to the last Reese. - Last three stitches, - at which point we will knit two and pearl one. - All right, - so repeat this row until your entire piece measure is 18 inches, - at which point we will seem our peace and put in that central band. 10. Mock-Turban Headband: Seaming Kitchener Stitch: - All right, - so now you've got 18 inches in mistake rib. - Pretty awesome, - right? - This is such a cool effect. - And can you believe it was just a one stitch pattern? - That's pretty crazy. - All right, - so once your piece measures 18 inches, - you can start seeming together with the Kitchener Stitch. - All right, - So what we're going to do first is untangle or unravel this crow Shea edge that we have, - which is holding our lives. - Stitches. - So what we're gonna do is we're gonna unravel from the end. - That does not have or not. - So remember when we first started, - we nodded the end, - Where are slipping all awas. - And that would be right here. - Here's or not. - So we don't want to start on this end. - We want to start on the end without the not Okay, - So let's start unraveling. - Here we go. - And see, - we are just going to take out some of these knots on and here we go. - Right. - Okay. - So now we are unraveling, - and you can see this first stitch here. - I'm just gonna pick that one right up before it falls off is gonna fall off. - It's kind of gonna fall off. - So here we go. - Picked up that first stitch here, - and it has embedded itself into stitch. - So I'm gonna just take it off without, - you know, - undoing the rest of these Croce stitches. - So here we go. - Great. - Okay, - so now we're just going to start pulling our crow. - Shea, - uh, - Marc rochet edge and picking up the stitches as they fall off. - So as they fall off, - I've got my needle ready, - and it's just gonna go inside. - Okay, - So I'm pulling it off, - and I'm catching it before it even falls. - I don't want these stitches to fall off, - So here we go. - And pulling and catching. - Okay. - Pulling and catching, - pulling and catching. - So it's a good idea to go this slow if you just kind of rip it out all in one go. - It's very likely that some of your stitches will fall and get lost, - and that is not good. - So I'm just pulling and catching right now. - And here we go. - I'm just gonna pull a little bit more. - There we go. - Caught it. - Here we go on and continue pulling and catching, - pulling and catching whips. - Here we go. - Get that whole stitch on there pulling and catching. - And here we go. - Get that whole stitch on. - They're not just half a stitch. - Okay. - Come on. - There. - All right, - keep on going. - Okay. - Almost there. - Here, - there, - stitch. - Here we go. - Here we go on, - and we go. - And here we go. - All right, - So let's count our stitches to make sure that we have 27 stitches. - You've got 2468 10 12 14 16 18 2022 24 26. - All right, - so sometimes this happens. - Sometimes a stitch will disappear off of your, - um, - your provisional cast on, - and that's okay. - What we can do is we can kind of fudge it up a little bit with the tail end of our yard - right here. - So what we can do is we can get a separate needle out if we want, - and we can kind of drop this, - Pick this up, - make sure we don't drop that entirely. - And we can kind of, - you know, - fudge it by knitting into the front and the back of it. - Right? - So we could go like this, - cain it into the front and into the back of it also known as a K F B. - So now we just giving ourselves an extra stitch. - Right? - So we've got two or 68 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 27. - All right, - so that's the number of stitches that we have that we cast it on and the number of stitches - that we have on this needle. - All right, - so now we can just get rid of our scrapyard and we can start seeming cool. - So let's turn our work so that the working yarn is facing us and we can just cut, - you know, - a tail end of our yarn for seeming Let's say about two feet to three feet, - like this much is pretty good for seeming. - So we are going to do a straight. - We're gonna do a straight Kitchener stitch. - Even though our stitches are not all stock in that stitch, - it doesn't really matter, - because we're going to be hiding this seem with our central band. - Okay, - so let's threat up or a needle like this. - And now we're gonna do our set up row for the Kitchener Stitch. - So we're gonna do is I'm gonna take my yarn and I'm going to go through the front of my - first stitch on my front needle as if to Pearl. - So I'm going from the top to the bottom, - okay? - And I'm just going to pull my yarn through. - But something seems to be happening here. - It's, - like, - a big notch. - So let's try and figure What's your what's going on here? - Okay, - there's a bit of a tangle. - Okay, - So we're gonna go into our first stitch on our front needle as if to Pearl, - and we're gonna go into the back, - the stitch on our back needle as if we're going to knit. - All right, - here we go. - I'm just gonna pull this as far as I can. - Here we go. - And then we're gonna go into the first stitch on our front needle as if we're going to knit - . - Okay, - so from the bottom to the top. - Okay, - great. - And then we're gonna pop this stitch right off of our needle just like that. - And then I'm gonna pull it tight that I'm going to go into the next stitch on my front - needle as if to Pearl, - and we're gonna leave this stitch on our Neil. - Then we're going to go into the next ditch on our back needle as if to Pearl and oh, - been of a tangle again. - So here we go into our back stitch as if to Pearl, - and we're gonna pop that one right off our needle, - and then we'll just tug it a little bit and then we're gonna go into the next It's on our - back stitch on our back needle as if to knit and we're gonna pull it through So we're gonna - leave it on the needle So when we go into our back needle, - we you know, - we knit into it Nothing comes off But when we knit into the front of our needle as we're - doing now we're knitting into the stitch on a front needle that that stitch will always - come off So on our front needle we knit off So we just need into it And we popped our - stitch off and we pearl on So the next it's on our front needle We pearl into it and we - leave it on on our back stitch on our back needle We pearl into the stitch and then we pop - it off. - So we pearl off on our back stitch and we knit on. - So the next ditch, - we're going to knit into it and it's going to stay on our needle. 11. Mock-Turban Headband: Stitching the Central Wrap: - All right, - so now we've finished seeming up our headband, - and it looks a little bit like this, - OK, - It's like a pretty nice seem. - It's not a perfect join, - but that's OK, - because we're gonna be putting our central wrap here, - so it's going to hide our seem. - Okay, - So now that you have finished Kitchener Stitch, - you finished seeming your seemed together. - We've got all of the's, - um, - you know, - loose ends, - right? - So you're gonna wanna we've in these ends so that you don't walk around with strands of - yarn hanging off of your head band. - So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take her tapestry needle, - and we are just going to weave in the ends on our headband. - So after, - um, - you know, - after you've seemed of your headband, - you're gonna have, - you know, - seems all over the place. - And what you're gonna do is you're just gonna turn your work to the back side. - I'm just gonna turn it around here, - and you're just going to weave in. - You know, - these loose ends into the stitches on the back side of your fabric. - So I'm kind of looking for pearl bumps cause Pearl bumps air a great place to kind of weave - in your your yarn. - A kind of camouflage, - Really nicely. - So here we go. - And this is a really short tail in that I've got. - So I've gotta improvise a little bit. - I'm going to go into this Purl stitch, - take my take my urine, - and just kind of push it through Whoopsie. - Push it through this tapestry needle. - There we go. - And just, - you know, - bring it into some of these stitches here so that I can weave it insecurely. - So I've gone in maybe three or four times, - and that's good enough for me. - I think that's fine. - So once I've done that, - I could just snip off my yarn like this, - and you would do this for all of the seams on your headband. - You really shouldn't have that many themes because, - you know, - we only seemed in with Kitchener Stitch. - Eso just seem in your loose ends, - and then we're gonna move on to knit up the central rap on this headband. - Okay, - So what you want to do is go to where you seemed up your headband. - So you can either go, - You know, - either side is fine. - Which ever side it's fine. - So I'm gonna have chosen this side toe work with. - And what we're gonna do is we're gonna find the center of our headband. - Okay, - so that's probably gonna be about here. - And we're going to start on this one of these roads, - you know, - with knit stitches that are kind of popping out and really prominent. - So what we're gonna do is we're actually going to pick up 10 stitches along this ridge, - so I'm gonna count five stitches from our seem. - We've got 12345 OK, - so we're going to start here, - right? - So I'm gonna push my needle into this little V shape stitch. - Okay? - I'm just gonna push it in like that, - and then I'm gonna take my ball of yarn, - and I'm going to pop it over my needle like this, - OK? - And I'm gonna pull it through this stitch that I've just picked up. - Okay, - so here we go. - I'm gonna pull it through. - All right? - So I'm basically picking up stitches along this ridge right here, - So I'm gonna go into my next ridge, - which is right here, - Right? - This little V shape here. - And I'm going to use my yarn working yard and wrap it over it over that little bee shape - and pick it out like this rights. - I'm gonna keep going along this ridge. - I'm going to go under this me shape with little stitch and pick out a stitch from that - ridge. - All right, - so let's keep going. - Here we go. - I'm gonna go under this ridge, - and I'm going to pick a stitch from it. - There we go. - And go under this stitch here, - this little be shape and take a stitch from under that. - Alright, - so I've got nine, - so let's keep going. - Okay. - So here is where we seemed, - and I'm just gonna pick out of the from here, - go to stitch and bring my yarn over it. - So they're six, - and now we've got more ridges here, - so that's great. - That's gonna help us. - Um, - pick out more stitches. - So here's a V, - and I'm going to knit into that. - And here is another V, - and I'm gonna slide my needle underneath and pick out a stitch that way. - And here is another V. - So let's go in. - So we want to pick up 10 stitches. - Got 24689 So we need one more. - Okay, - so let's go into this. - Be right here and pick up a stitch ups and pick up a stitch. - Cool. - 2468 10. - Perfect. - All right, - so now we've picked up 10 stitches along this ridge, - and we're gonna start knitting. - So we're just going to knit thes 10 stitches until it measures 3.5 inches. - So I'm just gonna start, - and I'm gonna I should mention that we're gonna slip our first stitch, - Okay? - Slipper for a stitch. - And the nit just knit all the way. - And when we get to the end of this road, - we're just gonna turn our work around and Pearl. - So we want, - um, - you know, - a band of stock in that stitch. - Okay? - The central band is gonna be a stocking stitch band. - Here we go. - I'm gonna pull this, - you know, - yarn strand tightly. - And then I'm gonna, - you know, - turn my work around and work a pearl row, - right? - And I'm gonna slip that first stitch and then start pearling. - Okay, - so I'm gonna work stock in that stitch along these 10 stitches until my work measures 3.5 - inches 12. Mock-Turban Headband: Finishing the Project: - All right, - so now you've net 3.5 inches in stock. - Annette stitch of your central band. - Let's measure this guy out. - Let's see, - 3.5. - Yeah, - pretty good. - All right, - so now what we're gonna do is we're going to cast off thes stitches. - All right, - so let's do this. - We're going to cast off. - So I'm gonna pearl two stitches, - and then I'm going to pop that first stitch over and do the same thing. - So I'm just, - you know, - casting off on my Purl side. - You could cast off on your knit side. - It really doesn't matter. - Okay, - so let's to this here. - And once we cast off, - we're just going to seem this central band toothy inside of our head band, - and then we'll be done, - and then you can wear this puppy out, - you know, - go to the gym with it, - you know, - let it stay home with you while you have a spa day. - Whatever plans you have for it, - it will be ready for you once we finish casting off and seeming this guy. - All right, - So what I'm gonna do is I'm at my last stitch. - I'm gonna leave you know a fairly long tail, - cause I'm gonna use this tale for seeming in this central band. - So I've got maybe, - like, - 15 inches. - Maybe I'll give it a little bit more, - and then we're gonna chop it off right there. - Okay, - so I'm gonna get my yarn, - and I'm gonna, - um, - bring it to the front of my needle. - And I'm just gonna take my stitch and bring it over that strand of yarn and pull through. - Here we go. - I may need to use my hands here. - We're gonna pull it through. - Here we go. - Cool. - So now it is secure, - and we could just wrap this band around our our headband, - So here we go. - I'm just going to scrunch it up a little bit. - Okay, - so this is a very scrunchie stitch, - and I'm just gonna bunch it up a little bit, - and then I'm gonna bring this central band over, - okay? - And just wrap it around, - Okay? - So let's take a look at this. - This is gonna be the front side or the good side of our work. - And that looks pretty good to me, - right? - It's kind of bunched up. - It looks pretty nice. - I like it. - So I'm going to turn to the back of my work. - And we're just going to seem this central band to the edge that we picked up, - OK, - and we're going to use this tail end that we just cut off. - I'm gonna get my tapestry needle out, - and I'm going to leave it in to this uhm yarn strand. - And then I'm just going to bunch up the central band, - press it up against the seam where we picked up stitches. - And I'm just gonna go into these, - um, - these stitches right here and start seaming it. - So I'm gonna do ah, - pretty rough. - Seem this is on the inside of our work, - so no one's going to see it. - So I'm going to go into one of the legs of these stitches, - okay? - And just seem it to the top. - Okay, - I'm going to go into one of the legs of these stitches of this edge that I picked up. - All right, - go in. - All right, - let's pick up a leg from where we cast off. - All right, - Go in, - pick up a stitch from our caste on edge, - go in, - and we're just going to continue on in this way, - K, - pick up a leg. - All right, - go in. - Pick ups of stitch from our caste on edge. - And here we go pullin, - Let's get a leg and let's get an edge. - And you can definitely make this a little bit symmetrical, - right? - You can, - you know, - match up your legs with the cast on the edge. - And I have more or less done that you can eyeball it a little bit. - Just make sure it's even important. - Thing is that this band stays in place. - Okay, - so here we go. - Here is our last cast on or here's our last edge. - And here's our last cast off stitch. - Awesome. - So let's do one more here. - Perfect. - All right, - So now our central band is secure. - You can see this is the front of our central band, - and it looks pretty darn nice. - I think if I do say so myself, - it looks pretty nice. - All right, - So now all we have left to do is we've in these ends. - So what we're gonna do is just go into some of these stitches here. - We've got a lot of stitches to choose from, - so Let's go into this little Purl stitch here. - I have a thing for weaving in into Purl stitches, - cause you could hide them in the bumps. - Really nicely. - So here we go. - I'm going to go in down here. - All right? - Maybe we're going to go up here and we'll weave in, - like, - 45 times. - And when we're happy with it will just snip off just like that. - All right? - So we don't have a lot of we ends to weave in. - We just got one more. - So go ahead. - We've in all of your ends, - and when you're done, - you will have this pretty little head band toe where? - All right, - so go ahead and enjoy.
