Extended headbands?

Hi Dinah, I don't understand your question... The braided parts on the cover are the ends of the headbands, yes, do you mean that by extended?
They are double Coptic headbands, like I "invented" them after learning how to do them. I wrote an instructional book about several variants I came up with. Currently it is only available as a ebook, but I am planning to release it as a print version again some time. Not clear when at the moment, though.

Hi! Yes, I suppose that is what I meant...the head bands top and foot of spine are repeated across the boards. Extended just seemed quicker! :-) I like them.Wish my fingers could do this!

I must admit that I always struggle with tying the last knot of the Coptic headbands, and so I thought I'd try something else, and make the knot at a different position. Worked well and made the whole thing rather easier than harder.
