Yarn-Over Check may just be the most underused 2-color pattern in all of knitting. It defies belief that this easy and delightful pattern has been so overlooked. It is astonishingly simple, even more so when worked in the round. And the fabric is so soft, cuddly and warm… Perfect for hats, or in this case an even easier headband.
If you are one of those knitters who whines a little when it comes to working the crown of a hat because you make counting mistakes while decreasing or you just don’t particularly like double point needles, you will love this project. It is a hat without its crown! No decreases, no double points.
