I wanted something that was wide enough to fully cover my ears to protect them from the cold Maryland weather. The Bumpy Ridges Earwarmer/Headband is just that; it’s wide and fits comfortably. The cluster stitches give it a fun, textured look that will complement your hair, regardless of the length. It’s easily customizable to fit you just how you like it although it comes in two sizes: S/M & L/XL. The Bumpy Ridges Earwamer/Headband is also a great stash buster for any 1/2 skeins you may have, or for those skeins you have in only one color. I made two of them in different colors for different looks when I wear them.

Pattern Notes

  • Ch1 does not equal a stitch.
  • Make your sl sts loose.
  • You can make your piece smaller or bigger by repeating rows 2-5 however many times you’d like, then continue with the rest of the finishing rows. Measure on head as you go to make sure you have a comfortable fit.
