Knitters : Easter is coming up! The pattern for these perky infant socks is found at my Ravelry store . The pattern contains 4 sizes: A, B, C and D to fit infants of ages 0-6, 6-12 and 12-24 months. Size D is for a tall 24 month child. Size B front and side views are shown in Palette Cream (23730) and Cosmopolitan (24568) fingering weight yarns.

This high relief, textured hair band, is 2-3/8" wide, knitted flat and joined to form a ring using a Kitchener (grafting) stitch. Optionally, the band can be seamed at the center back to form the ring. The design features garter stitch borders, a center cable of light pink Xs and dark pink Os and slip stitch accents. The band stretches in both directions so it is forgiving, size wise.
The pattern is provided in written and charted formats for medium headband (19"-21") and wristband (6"-7") circumferences. Instructions for custom sizing are also included.
UPDATE SEPT 2014 The pattern can be purchased at my Ravelry Store:
I love the rich colors and soft hand of Heritage Bloomfield Handpainted yarn and enjoyed knitting something for myself for a change. The pattern was easy to memorize and the yarn, beads and pattern were packaged in a convenient kit. I made the longer scarf and elected not to add a fringe.

I knitted this shawl for my mother to match her Lily of the Valley Socks--lily of the valley being one of her favorite flowers. Minor changes to Nancy Bush's pattern instructions sped the knitting and a few additional quality control tips prevented errors.
