Having a"brain freeze".....
Hi all, well I decided to knit up an ear warmer in the round (just making up as I go) I'm I gonna be able to cast off all these stitches in the round?

You cast off in the round the same way you cast off flat. Choose your method and go for it.

Why? If it's an earwarmer kinda like a headband, what would be the point of doing less stitches on one side?

cuz I never measured anyone's head vertically, so I guess I am thinking it might be "wider" on the cast off edge...

If you make the BO stretchy it'll work fine.

Here's a super stretchy bind off that works well for cowls and socks and probably ear warmers too. It can be used for knits or purls or ribbing bind offs.
