Many thanks to twinsetellen on Ravelry who came up with this idea!
Ellen used a Bohus swatch to create her first hair clip, but I simply used a very little of my leftovers from my Dean Cap and created a 40 stitch swatch. There is ribbing at each end. Patterning in the middle of the swatch is part of the original Dean pattern but adapted for this small space on a purchased hair clip/barrette. The pattern for the process is a free download on Ellen's Ravelry pages(link above). The actual patterns are available from either Susanna Hansson in her workshops or from the charts in Wendy Keele's Poems of Color.
