The Fourth Day Earwarmer is a quick knit to keep your head toasty warm this season. I named it "Fourth Day" because it will become that favorite accessory that will help you squeeze a fourth day out of your blowout. I love anything that keeps me from having to wash my hair!
It's not really a pattern design, just a quick little project to use up some last bits of yarn and to brighten your wintery spirits.
Not a knitter? You may purchase this cozy earwarmer in my ETSY SHOP!
40 yards super bulky yarn (I used Loops & Threads Cozy Wool, my fav)
sz 13 needles
R1: k1, *sl 1 st purlwise (with yarn at the back), k1, yo, psso (pass slipped stitch over both), repeat from * to last stitch, k1
R2: k1, purl to last stitch, k1
*See notes at the end for help with stitch pattern
CO 14 stitches.
R1: Begin with R1 of Crossed Stitch pattern.
R2: Every WS row will be R2 of Crossed Stitch pattern.
Repeat R1 and R2 for 19 inches, or a length that fits your head size.
Weave in ends and block.
Seam ends of work together using mattress stitch. Note: the stitch pattern creates diagonal ends of the work, so the seam will run diagonally as well.
Now throw on your earwarmer and put your blow dryer away!
Please post your cute earwarmers on the RAVELRY PROJECT PAGE to show your Fourth Day love!
