Free Knitting Pattern: Rolled-Edge Sports Band

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton
Pattern #: BK4K-0609002
This wristband is a little more challenging than our simple band because you’ll change colors on the edges! Because the edges are done in stockinette stitch, they roll for a neat finished edge.

Rolled-Edge Sports Band

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

16 St sts + 24 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] square When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

When changing colors, don’t forget to twist the old and new yarn together so that you don’t get holes in your piece.
