From the book, “This pattern offers three different versions of headwarmers. Start by making a headband, perfect to wear for vigorous outdoor activity when a hat is too warm. Add a cap to the headband and you have a classic style hat. Add earflaps to make a helmet, which will keep you toasty on cold and windy days.”

The book version was knit using Lamb’s Pride Worsted.
