Description from Knitty.com:

As a devotee of creating hand-knitted gifts, I tend to run into the same problem every year: What can I make with just one skein and half a day?

I want to knit something practical, pretty, and looks like it took much longer to make than it did. Oh yeah, and it should be fun to knit. Tall order? Not really.

This headband is a great introduction to entrelac and by the time you’ve got it down, you’re finished!

Any yarn can be used, but variegated fibers really shine, creating a look of complicated colorwork without changing yarn. Also, my least favorite part of entrelac is the non-public side of the knitting. It looks, well, funny. No worries, here it doesn’t show.*
