I reverse engineered the pattern for these warm ear warmers from one that was knit probably back in the 1980’s. They’re typically worn over the berets worn by Post members heading out on Snow Trails adventures in lieu of a larger wool hat but they’re equally functional worn simply as a headband. I’m told Mrs. Wildman, the wife of the late Mr. Wildman, former Canoe Trails leader, would crank out these practical ear warmers during Post meetings.

The two strands of yarn held together make these ear warmers super warm and durable, and the slipped stitches along with the pattern increases and decreases create a sort of cup that envelopes the ear instead of sitting right against it.
