Bonnie Earwarmer Headband

 Are you ready for a little Friday Fun ?

I hope you will join me in making a cosy Earwarmer Headband. 

Knitted in Aran weight yarn 

Knitted in DK yarn

Knitted in DK yarn


Bonnie Earwarmer Headband   ~   For Aran weight OR DK yarn

 

Use Aran weight yarn for a cosy Earwarmer !

Requires:

5mm needles

Aran weight yarn – around 40g

Cable needle

 

Tension:

18sts = 4” (10cm)

 

Size:

Width – 5” (12.5cm)

Length – 18”  (easy to adjust)

 

 

Or DK yarn for a lighter Earwarmer

Requires:

4mm needles

DK yarn – around 20g

Cable needle

 

Tension:

22sts = 4” (10cm)

 

Size:

Width – 4” (10cm)

Length – 18”  (easy to adjust)

 

 

Top Tip ~ C4 means cable 4 stitches– slip the next 2 stitches on to a cable needle and hold at the back or the front of your work (whichever you find easiest). Knit 2sts, then the 2sts from the cable needle.

It doesn’t matter if you cable back or front – as long as you are consistent throughout.

 

There are 2 cables – you can cable them both the same way OR cable one back and cable one front if you prefer.

 

Cast on 24sts

 

Row 1:          K5, p2, k4, p2, k4, p2, k5

Row 2:          K7, p4, k2, p4, k7

Row 3:          K5, p2, C4, p2, C4, p2, k5

Row 4:          K7, p4, k2, p4, k7

Repeat these last 4 rows until your work measure 18” from the cast on edge for an average size woman’s head – ending after working a Row 3.

It is easy to adjust the length.

 

Cast off

 

Join the cast on and cast off edges with a short seam.  Darn away ends

 

To make other sizes ~  Measure the head, then subtract 3” and work until that length.
