My dad has a hard time finding ear warmer headbands that fit him, so I knit him one for Christmas.

Thanks to CodeMonkey for modeling.

Pattern: I used the stitch pattern from the Yarn Harlot’s One Row Handspun Scarf and just knit until it was big enough to go around Dad’s head.

Yarn: Berroco Pure Merino DK in colorway 4534 Black Magic

Since the holidays are over, I have quite a few knitted gifts to post.  I’ll start with a scarf that I knit as a thank you for my mentor at work.  It was my car knitting while we were in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons this summer.

Pattern: Bias Scarf 1 from Maia Spins

Yarn: Two balls Rowan Summer Tweed in colorway 537 Summer Berry

Modifications: I changed the dimensions some since the pattern was written for thinner yarn than I used.  I just worked the increase rows until it looked wide enough to be a scarf then knit until I was almost out of yarn and finished with the decrease rows.

Overall a nice knit with nice yarn that I totally failed to take a nice picture of so here it is blocking.
