My favorite thing to do while the kids are off for Winter Break is to fill up my Travel Mug with piping hot coffee, bundle up myself and the kiddos and go for a Winter walk. Something about the crisp, cool chill of Winter makes me feel even warmer. How is that possible?
Maybe it’s just the thought that for two whole weeks, I get my little munchkins all to myself. These are those little moments that you have to cherish now. They won’t last forever. So I cherish them EVERY season.
This Ear Warmer was a super quick knit that I made after such a walk. It was early in the morning. The kiddos were warm, of course because they were running up trees and onto light posts and crawling onto rocks and playing in streams. All the things that kiddos do whilst mom is walking a boring straight line. And since all I was doing is walking a boring, straight line, I was not as warm as they naturally were. Especially my ears.
The next morning, I wore my new Ear Warmer and warm I was!
This pattern is a super easy and lightning quick knit! You’ll only need around 40 yards of Super Bulky weight wool and size #13 needles. The pattern is also charted. The first stitch of each row is slipped which makes the warmer curl over on the edges so they hug your ears. Perfect! This headband also works great over your earbuds so they don’t shake loose when you’re on a run.
This is a FREE pattern and you are welcome to share it with others. Enjoy your winter mornings, with toasty ears. 🙂
