Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Holiday Gifts 2009:
Katy Ryan says, ‘’Laydbug’ is diner slang for the fountain drink girl. The cables and ribs of the Ladybug Headband keep her hair out of her eyes.’ One ball of posh merino wool knits up into a lightning-fast gift.

Finished Size: 3¼“ wide and 17½” long, excluding ties.

Yarn: Filatura di Crosa Zara (100% merino; 137 yd [125 m]/50 g): #1735 blue, 1 ball. Yarn distributed by Tahki Stacy Charles (Note: #1735 blue has been discontinued; we suggest #1472 bright light blue).

Needles: Size 6 (4 mm): straight and double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Markers (m); tapestry needle.

Gauge: 30 sts and 27 rows = 3¼“ in patt.
