I'm doing just the band part of Knitty's Coronet just as an ear cover. I'm using Lion Brand Kool Wool I picked up cheap at Hobby Lobby since it is discontinued. It's my first cable project, and it's not too bad!
That's great! Aren't cables fun? They look SO fancy, but are really easy! I kool wool. I wish it wasn't discontinued. I really like your ear cover! I am very excited today, aren't I? Lots of exclamation points!
There is a really cute cabled/bobbled headband in the winter issue of Interweave Knits if you want to do another one of these with a slightly different design.
