The Lakeshore Ear Warmer Lite is the perfect stash-busting, gift-giving, beginner-friendly project in a more delicate weight yarn (fingering or sport) than its predecessor, the Lakeshore Ear Warmer!
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”
Materials & Yardage
Approximately 120 yds of Fingering or Sport weight yarn
Needles & Notions
US size 5 (3.75 mm) circulars
Tapestry needle for sewing in ends

Note: Gauge may vary based on your yarn weight choice – and that is okay! It may change the width of your ear warmer slightly, but you will knit to length, so length will not change based on your gauge.
