With colder weather quickly approaching it is time to start thinking about staying warm, if you haven’t already. The question always is, how do I stay warm, look Chic, and be different? Well you make your own accessories, or find someone to make them for you.
This is a pattern I discovered last year, and it is a free Ravelry download. It is a knit bow ear warmer by Beth Postelwait. She uses short rows for shaping. If you are not familiar with short rows, here is a great Youtube video by Knitpicks to get you through it. She explains short rows, wrapping and turning, and making mistakes, so set time aside to watch the whole thing, it’s great for beginners.
What makes this pattern different from other bow ear warmer/headbands is the shaping. Sometimes when you add a bow to a headband it could look bulky or out of place. The shaping mimics the shape of the bow so it just….fits. Plus I L-O-V-E using the bow as an opportunity to practice my color work for larger projects. This style is so versatile, it can be worn many different ways.
Have a Crafty Day!
