Finishing the Project

Thank you for the free pattern! I can't wait to make some of these for Christmas gifts.

Quick question: Once you have finished knitting, how do you join the two ends together to finish the headband?

Finishing headband

You are welcome! The answer to your question is at the bottom of the pattern! "Finish: Pull both life lines tight to gather knitting to the center; secure. Weave in ends."


I have a question about the second life line. At the end where it says to pull to Life Lounge tight where does the other life line come from? It says I'm at the lifeline instructions on the pattern so I'm not sure where the other Lifeline should come from.


I'm sorry I did not read before I sent. I meant to say and the second part of the instructions that is stated to omit the lifeline instructions. So my question remains where would the second life line be coming from? I also forgot to thank you for the instructions. The headband looks lovely and I can't wait to try it.

I've responded below! Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog.


Hello, Sorry I can see how the directions may become confusing as written. It should read pull both ENDS of the lifeline tight. There is no 2nd lifeline. I hope this helps to answer your question! -Nicole


Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern! I have many of your patterns including your book of patterns..my question.... instructions for the foundation row says to use 1 strand of yarn for the lifeline...do we continue with just one strand or use 2? Thanks Again!!!


I'm so happy that you are enjoying my patterns and book! The foundation row uses the 1 strand of the main yarn and then you create the lifeline. Always use 1 strand of yarn unless it tells you to use 2 strands in my patterns. Thank you for visiting my shop and blog. It's always appreciated-Nicole

Do you have a video on making

Do you have a video on making this?


No, I do not do video patterns, just instruction. I'm a diehard believer that loom knitters should learn how to read patterns. Learning to read them opens doors to all knitting patterns, even needle knitting patterns. If you are looking for video patterns then YouTube is a great resource!

Gather bindoff

Hello - I’m new to loom knitting. What is the “gather bindoff”? Do I join the two ends before taking it off the loom?

Thank you for your help, and your pattern.
