Knitted EarWarmer or Headband Pattern

Updated on October 6, 2015

Earwarmer Headband

Knitted Horn Cable

This cozy ear warmer or headband is a simple beginners project. But if the cable stitch is intimidating to you, I would define this as an Easy to Intermediate level pattern.

There is a large number of books with detailed instructions that help me learn back in the day. I found this pattern idea on a knitting book.

This is not the only way you can customize to your needs or preference. Using different size needles even with the same yarn with change the look of the finished product. But I'm sure you know that by know.
