Additional Chattiness

These are awesome!

It even looks like its gonna make you go faster/exercise harder!

Slap your hair in a pony or bun, pop this on over - and out for a run or bike ride in any chill weather.

Covers ears completely and hugs the back of your neck. keeping off the draft. Knit to desired back flap length.

You can even wear eye or sun glasses with it, the arms go right through the ‘wing vents’.

It is a complicated knit the first time but it’s precise regimented patterning so it’s easy to anticipate and read once you’ve started.
