Notes:

  • Stitch multiple: 1 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • The turning ch-1 does not count as a stitch.
  • The sl st does not count as a stitch.
  • Make your sl st tightly.
  • You may customize the headband height by working the repeat as many, or as few, times as you wish. Every 2 rounds you add with the stitch pattern, will add approximately 0.5 inch of height to the earwarmer. 
  • I use an invisible join to finish off my final round of stitches, you may substitute a sl st to join if you prefer.
  • 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.
