As Spring approaches and the temperature warms, a full hat feels like more than we need many days. Our ears still need some coverage though for the wind off the water... and our new Stonington Ear Warmer is just what Goldilocks ordered - not too hot, not too cold, juuuust right. We love the coziness of an aran weight yarn for the earband, and Tahki's marled Zona is a lofty, soft choice for warmth without weight, and without too much heat; it's a cotton and wool blend.
Prefer a worsted weight? This pattern includes instructions for that as well, along with two sizes to choose from, in both yarn weights. Our ear warmer is highly adaptable, and a fast but interesting knit (no buttonholes; those buttons are sewn on to close up the band); you can whip up one in just a few hours. We've got several on the needles, in a rainbow of refreshing Spring colors.
