Winter Warmer

.....Morning folks.....
boy it is very windy here on the island today
No ferries and gale force winds and high tide isn't until 1.30pm...eek
I'm off to work in a I'd rather be knitting and crocheting

A Winter Warmer to share today....

I made quite a few of my own Christmas presents last year
My youngest daughter loves headband ear warmers
I cast on using Grey DK yarn 
I doubled it up as I didn't have any chunky, 
you just have to be careful you don't split your stitches when knitting

The pattern is very simple ~

Using size 7mm knitting pins cast on 15 stitches
Row 1 ~ Knit
Row 2 ~ Knit 3, Purl 9, Knit 3
Row 3 ~ Knit 3, C6F (Knit 3 stitches on to a cable needle and hold at front of work, Knit 3 then Knit 3 from cable needle) Knit 3
Row 4 ~ Knit 3, Purl 9, Knit 3
Row 5 ~ Knit
Row 6 ~ Knit 3, Purl 9, Knit 3
Row 7 ~ Knit 6, C6B (Knit 3 stitches onto cable neddle and hold at back of work, knit 3 then knit 3 from cable needle) Knit to end
Row 8 ~ Knit 3, Purl 9, Knit 3

Repeat these 8 rows until size required, on my last row before cast off I made a buttonhole.

Hope you will give my pattern a try,
 if you do please link on this post and I'll come and visit you

Stay warm and safe folks

Happy Creating
