Free Knitting Pattern from Lion Brand Yarn, formatted for input to refreshable Braille displays or Braille software
Rolled-Edge Sports Band
Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton
Pattern Number: 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. Use at the gym or to make those too-loose band gauntlets stay where they are supposed to.

SKILL LEVEL:  Easy (Level 2)

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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

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