Drop stitch headband

This is my current project- a White Drop Stitch headband. I’m planning, once I get it to length, to make a piece of knit fabric and make it look like a bow. OR, perhaps making a little crochet flower or bow and attach it. Or maybe both? Idk. This is basically working off of the  It’s a Cinch thing. But I’m adapting it for a more summery, airy style.

This will be available on Ebay, as early as tomorrow evening or afternoon, if you’re interested. The price will probably be around 6 dollars, since that seems to be my go-to for headbands. Also, this one’s not spectacularly difficult, so I can’t justify charging more. Shipping will most likely be free, or just enough to pay for the shipping label.

The pattern I’m following, in case you’re curious is;

 

Cast on 22 [or whatever you feel like, the cast on doesn’t appear to be really important here. Thick, thin….It all works]

I’m knitting the first four rows.

Then, I pick up a stitch like I’m going to knit it, and instead of wrapping once, I wrap three times. Then pull the wrapped thread through as though regularly knitting. Do that for each stitch.

Then, knit the first loop of each set of three, and let the other yarn overs slide off. Do that for each stitch.

Then simply knit the next three row [I count the first knit row after the dropped stitches as row one] and just repeat.
