Cozy Ears

After a few abortive attempts to make a classy-yet-functional ear warmer for my friend Jill's birthday, I came up with this:

I'm pretty sure it's going to look better on Jill than it does on me -- she has long, very dark hair; the contrast with the light blue should be pretty.

It's the Berroco Zen (Mushi Gray) and Rowan Calmer (Calmer) knit in seed stitch on size 13 needles. (I can't remember how many stitches I cast on, but it was somewhere between 10 and 15).

"Classy yet functional!" (I could hear your voice when I read that . . . you really do talk like that!) I love it. Looks nice and snug, too. Like a bug. In a rug. :)

Neato ear warmer! Love that seed stitch. And what a great touch adding the Zen yarn. Really gives it some class.

Don't you just love it when you try a combo of yarns and it works? The chosen stitch probably has something to do with it has well. Good show!

very cute! I think that I need to make something like that for winter. I'm not much of a hat person. Great inspiration!
