PATTERN DETAILS

This simple and chic design was inspired (and requested) by my favorite Fashionknista, Lindsay. She saw something similar in a fashion magazine, listed at an outrageous price, and asked me to create something similar - using luscious luxury yarns. Well, how could I say 'no' to a cashmere earmuff? Thus, Fashionknitsta was born! Knit it the round, this "elegant earmuff" is knit from tie to tie, starting with a provisional cast on and ending with a 3-needle bind off. It can be done with one skein of your favorite luxury yarn - as a treat to yourself or another! Directions include three yarn weight options - fingering, sport, and DK. Samples shown were knit using one skein each of Shibui Knits Baby Alpaca DK in the color "Seaweed" and Rowan Felted Tweed DK in the color "Seafarer".

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of "traditional" knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
