Up here in the frozen North (it’s been snowing now for about 4 months, and there’s not really an end in sight, but we’re used to that, we revel in it, we can take it, bring it on and all that), we live in “layers”. There are some days when there’s not been an ear warmer/headband ever knitted that will take on -40F. And then the days get warmer (“warm” is relative, when it’s -40 one week, the next week +20 is “warm”), a headband/ear warmer is just the ticket!
This free pattern, knitted in bulky yarn will have your ears all warmed up in no time at all. http://tmatthewsfineart.blogspot.com/2010/01/free-knitting-pattern-headband-ear_15.html
