a "round" about way of looking cute :-)
I love the idea of adding a flower to an earwarmer, but I also like to keep things simple. I was inspired by a pair of mittens that used this retro design as small accents on the wrists. I thought to myself, "That is really creative... I bet that would look cute as the main design... not just an accent..."

Thus, my Retro Earwarmer was created!

    RETRO FLOWER

    I play this one by ear. so, instructions are general and adjustable.

    ch 8
    Round 1: dc as many dc's as possible without over crowding or causing the circle to bend/wave, sl st in 1st dc, ch 2
    Round 2: dc in every st, sl st in 1st dc of that round
    Round 3: dc in every other st, sl st in 1st dc of that round

    BAM! Retro ;-)

  • Step 3

    SEW THAT MUG ON!

    Pick a nifty place to sew your retro shape flower thing onto your earband.

    Take a long strand (1.5 ft should be fine) of the yarn you used for your shape.

    Secure your shape onto your earband by weaving your piece of yarn through the edges of the shape onto the band. Try not to skip to many stitches so that your sewing yarn won't be easily seen.

    Once you've gone all the way around your shape and it's now sew onto your band, secure by tying the two loose ends together (these should be on the inside of your band) and weave in loose ends.

    Now you have an awesome retro earband to keep you warm!

    Aren't you so smart :-)
