I'm an amateur at this. I prefer to wear the wide headbands instead of hats to keep my ears warm. My daughter and I tried knitting a double-wide band and then bringing it back up onto the loom the way you make a hat brim. Then we knit off, but the knit-off edge was too tight and stiff while the other edge was loose and stretchy. I have a double-wide band knit that will match the scarf I made. I don't want to ruin this headband. How do I knit off so that I don't have the previous problem?
