This cozy ear warmer was inspired by an adorable, store-bought, ear band brought into my local yarn shop. We all fell in love with the band and decided we needed to be able to make our very own, so I developed this pattern. Whereas the main band is knit, the edging and embellishments may be knit or crocheted. An evening or two curled up with this pattern, some lush yarn, and a good movie will have your holiday gift knitting well underway.
