"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

um... is it just me? It looks like you are doing 11" of RIBBING , then the twist, then another 11 inches of ribbing, and yet the image shows a stockinette item

You are correct, the picture of the finished project does not match the pattern for the project.

I can't figure this out. If you slip 9 (kpkpkpkpk) onto a cable needle, you are left with 9 stitches, but if you follow the instructions, you are knitting the purls and purling the knits at that point. am i the only one? i ended up slipping an even # of stitches to get the twist to work in pattern.

Hi! I'm working on this headband and I don't understand how to do the cable. I've done cables before but this one just isn't working out. How did you get it to work? Thanks! Kathryne

The picture of the project and the pattern do not match, you have to slip half of the stitches to the cable needle to make the twist work. Cable is just working the stitches out of order, so after you slip to the front, work the last 9 stitches to match what you have already done, regardless of the pattern, otherwise it will not match.

Can't figure out however to make the twist.

Hi magel5, the twist occurs halfway through the pattern, where the pattern reads "C18F." This is a stitch where you slip the first 9 stitches on your needles onto a cable needle, work the last 9 stitches, and come back to the stitches on the cable needle. The instructions for C18F under "abbreviations" should teach you how to do this. This creates the chunky twist in the middle of the pattern. We hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I'm crazy for cables, so this headband really does it for me. I'd indulge in a handpainted yarn for this one to make it really special, maybe a variegated yarn.
