Additional Notes:
-Ch-1 at beginning of round does not count as a stitch
-These ear savers are for personal use, and not medical professionals. The reason being is that the embroidery and wool yarn will not stand up to daily washing. Hand wash in cool water only
-If you do not want to create an ear saver, you can turn these into barrettes instead with a couple of slight modifications! Notes on how to do that are in the main blog post.
-Embroidery notes and tips are below the individual ear saver styles.
