Knotty Cabled Earwarmer
My daughter wanted an earband that would be warm, thin, not itchy, and above all, very cool. This design met her requirements. Soft Malabrigo Rios Yarn, Knit on smaller than usual needles for a tight fabric and seed stitch edges to allow it to lie flat. The carrot color supplies the beta carotene daily dose, right? lol. Three lengths SM (MED, LG). If in doubt, and the intended wearer is not there to be measured, MED is the best bet.
Simple Cable, not bulky with the look of Celtic Knots. The yarn is so soft, the fabric firm. A quick-to-knit holiday gift!
