Brownie Knits Wednesday: Starband!!!

We are so excited to share our brand new pattern Starband with you! If you have longer hair and like to wear fun accessories, the Starband is for you! This functional knitted piece was designed using a beautiful star rib mesh pattern in the center panel. It is surrounded on both edges by garter stitches to help hold the headband in place. You can adjust the button band to ensure a perfect fit too! (As always, if you are not a knitter, we are happy to make custom finished Starbands for purchase. Drop us an email at the Brownie Knits Etsy shop and we will work out an order just for you!)

Pattern: Starband by Brownie Knits
Price: $1.99 available in our Ravelry, Craftsy, & Etsy shops
Yarn: dk weight; sample made out of Classic Elite Wool Bam Boo
Yardage used: 60
Gauge: 5.5 sts to an inch in garter
Needle: US 6 in circular or straight
Notions: button, tapestry needle, 2 stitch markers, row counter, safety pin, and scissors

The openwork star rib mesh design in the center adds a touch of elegance and is a simple lace repeat to knit. The test knits for this pattern knitted up in a few short sessions, so they are great headbands to make for gifts.

The buttonhole section has three different locations. For the smallest size, you can fold over the section and push the button through the overlapping holes. It is sure to fit teens through adults!

Other good yarn options are Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool or Knit Picks Gloss DK
