the pattern was pretty simple, I used Lion Brand wool ease ww and size 7 needles. ( I used one size smaller than the yarn label reccomended to make it a tighter/warmer weave.)
measure the circumfrence of your head,
co 24 (using provisional cast on)
*k3 p2 k6 p2 k6 p2 k3
k5 p6 k2 p6 k5
repeat these 2 rows 3 times for a total of 6 rows ending with the purl row
now work the cable row as follows
k3 p2 slip 3 onto cable needle in front of work, knit next 3 stitches and then k3 from cable needle, p2, slip 3 onto cable needle in front of work, knit next 3 stitches and then k3 from cable needle p2 k3*
* repeat until it is about 1 1/2"-2 " shorter than the circumfrence of your head-DO NOT BIND OFF.
with spare needle pick up 24 stitches from co edge and get rid of spare yarn from provisional cast on, and then use kitchner stitch to graft together. Viola, you're done! And you're ears will be nice and toasty.
please send me a pic when you're done, I'd love to see it.
