|Warm Tweedy Earwarmer Headband|
My Warm Tweedy Neckwarmer, Hat and Mittens are very popular ~ and I thought a matching Earwarmer would be cute too.
It is so quick and simple to knit........ and so cosy!
Warm Tweedy Earwarmer Headband
Use 2 strands of DK yarn (8ply) knitted together ~ or any combination of yarns to make a total of 16ply. This gives a nice ‘tweedy’ look
(Or use one strand of UK chunky weight yarn)
6½ mm needles
14sts = 4” (10cm) over stocking stitch
Width – 5” (13cm)
Length – 16 - 18” (depending on the size required)
Cast on 17sts
1st Row: K1, *k3, p1, repeat from * to last 4sts, k4
2nd Row: K2, *p1, k3 repeat from * last 3sts, p1, k2
Repeat these two pattern rows until around 18”, ending after completing a 1st row
Join the cast on and cast off edges with a short seam. Darn away ends
Wrap a length of yarn around the join to gather the Earwarmer if desired.
