Notes:

  • Multiple of 1 (plus 1 for the turning chain) (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • To add one inch of height, increase the starting chain by 3.
  • To increase the width (circumference) repeat R2 as many, or as few, times as you wish. 7 rows is approximately 2 inches.

Finishing Instructions for All Earwarmers

Finish off leaving a 6-inch tail of yarn for seaming.

On a flat surface, fold your project in half bringing the first and last rows together and lining up the stitches. Thread your yarn end on a yarn needle and work through both layers; whipstitch (view tutorial here) once for each stitch. I worked under the back loop from the last row and both loops from R1. 

Once you have finished seaming the side of the earwarmer, weave in any remaining ends securely.
