Modification Monday: Cable Headband


Original Pattern: Calorimetry

Knitter Extraordinaire: Michelle (Rav id)

Mods: Changed up the original almost-mitered ribbed headband to be a lushly cabled headband with seed stitch edging.


What Makes This Awesome: I love the texture of this piece. the seed stitch edging is perfect, and the cables are such a interesting and different idea, particularly how loose and almost free-form they look. This is the kind of piece that when you wear it, everyone would comment on it and ask were you got it. An absolutely gorgeous modification, for sure! You can find the full modified pattern on her project page, here.

WOw! I can just imagine that in a really chunky, multicolored yarn, too. What a fantastic idea.
