This is what I made with the big wooden dowel needles.
A Braided Headband
First, I made a three stitch I-Cord, 72 inches long, which I then
folded back on itself three times, so the length of each cord was 24 inches.
Remember, I didn't cut it, so I had a loop at each end.
I then braided the cords, pulling the single end through the looped part on each end.
Don't worry. You could finish the ends any way you like. Mine has a button.
For this sample, I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.
