The Lakeshore Ear Warmer is the perfect stash-busting, gift-giving, beginner-friendly project!
It is knit flat, using slipped stitches to create selvedge edges and two contrasting lines that add clean architectural texture to the ear warmer. The front twist is created when seaming the garment, which is explained in detailed steps and corresponding pictures in this pattern.
Final measurement of 18” circumference stretches to fit head circumference 22.5”
