Making of: “Blue basketweave” dread band

I must say, I am in love with this dreadlocks band! It is big and baggy, it is super nice and comfortable, it has beautiful blue colour and amazing basketweave-like pattern. It is definitely one of my favourite designs and I would gladly wear it myself, but I am trying to run a business so… ;) if you like it too, you can buy it here.

This dread band is made from cotton-viscose-linen mix yarn. I already used it in another project and I really enjoy working with it. It has a very nice texture and delicate shine. I think I will use it more in the future. One again, I was working on circular needles so there would be no need for sewing any parts together.

After I made dreadlocks band with big squares in checkerboard patter, I thought maybe I should try smaller squares? Something similar but more delicate? I went through my knitting book looking for inspiration and saw basketweave pattern. I immediately knew I wanted to use it – just look at it! Simple but so pretty.

How do you like it?
