Knit Head Wrap | Practice Lace Stitches in this easy fast knitting project

Special thanks to Ravelry member dc2go for requesting this pattern be next to update!

I love this pattern for teaching begging lace knitting, making a last minute gift, or keeping my on the go project bag light and easy. It is a great little pattern to practice many of the stitches essential to creating lacework. The yarn overs combined with increases and decreases create a fun texture that’s open and light weight. It knits up fast and is to work on while out and about. 

I’ve dug up the original pattern and put it all straight into this original post. But, if you’d like a tablet or printer friendly pdf version and help this and other Craft Leftovers patterns finding their way back online…

What’s the Craft Leftovers Pattern Archive Restoration Project?

Well, long story short: Back in 2013 shortly after my book was released and when I was very pregnancy with Lucy, Craft Leftovers was hacked and my server was wiped — which included my back ups. 7 years of work… gone Fast forward to 2019 and Jason being awesome. He found a very old hard drive that had everything we needed and he was able to reboot it. But you can’t reboot over 7 years of content without hiccups. The main one being any pattern with a PDF was lost.

This summer I hired a studio assistant (visual arts student from Iowa State University) and they are helping me slog through, find, edit, reformat and rerelease the over 100 free patterns that are in the archive. Read the long story and how I found my way back to craft here.
