Finally! A project to share! I’ve been pretty busy with the kids and a new hobby, bow making. I know, like I need another hobby. I’m not sure how exactly I landed in a pile of ribbon, but I’m enjoying the almost instant gratification that comes with bow making. Plus, bows are a lot more cost effective when it comes to selling my wares, which I’ve been trying to do for a while now. Anyway, back to the knitting!
About a week ago, my sister-in-law sent me a picture of an ear warmer and asked me if I could make her one. I said yes, of course. Going off the picture, I made a pattern and had the whole thing completed in a couple of hours. I think it’s really cute, and I hope she likes it!
If you’re interested in making one for yourself, I typed up the pattern in my project notes. I used Loops & Threads Cozy Wool in “Granite” and size 15 needles. I didn’t measure how much yarn I used, but it was way less than a ball. I’m pretty sure I could get another ear warmer out of the remainder. I bet Eva will want an ear warmer for next winter once she sees her aunt wearing one. :)
