pattern details:
Pattern: Shish-Ska-Boobless Panta by me, inspired by a Free People headband Yarn: Brown Sheep's Cotton Fleece in Tea Rose, held doubled - 79g Needles: Denise Interchangable - US 10 1/2

Notes: i am still working on the increases in the rib pattern. i tweaked the increases in the diamond shaping, using the central double increase, and using lri & rri for the side increases in each diamond. i am absolutely thrilled with how the pattern is looking - clean, and booble-less. the needles could be sized down to US 10's & work well. i was looking for a wider band across the top of my head, without adding to the pattern.the extra long tails add a bit of versatality with the added ability to use them to tie your hair up in a ponytail or just under the hair, with a long tail down your back. the yarn is wonderful. it's soft & blockable. warm & comfortable. so far, no ill effects from the 20% merino content in it.
