This minimalistic headband has just enough coverage to keep your ears warm on a windy day without mussing up all your hair. A button in the back makes it easy to get on and off too. Super quick to knit in a single evening. Sample shown (in size small) used only a third of a skein of Peruvia Quick. Earbuds makes a great last-minute gift for all your friends!
The pattern consists of 3 pages and gives you the option of working from written directions or from a chart (on it’s own page) for the earwarmer sections. Like all my patterns, it has been test knit and professionally tech edited to be as clear and free of errors as possible.
Sizes: Women’s S (M,L) to fit head circumferences of 21 (22, 23) in/ 53.5 (56,58.5) cm. Shown in size S. Pattern is very easy to customize by adding or subtracting length from bands between ears.
Finished Measurements: 19 (20, 21) in/ 48 ( 51, 53.5) cm circumference when buttoned. Designed with 2 in/ 5 cm negative ease.
Gauge: 3 sts and 6 rows/ inch over garter stitch. No need to knit a large gauge swatch; just measure your 3 st band after a few rows. It should measure approximately 1 in/ 2.5 cm wide.
