I’ve been wanting to post this for awhile. I hadn’t knitted in almost a year and thought this head wrap thing would be a fun return from the hiatus.

It works well for long hair because you can put it up—hard to do with a winter hat. And still keeps your ears warm.

Still on the life-long quest to find the perfect warm winter hat for curly hair (hat hair is esp. worse for curly headed folks).


You can find the pattern here.

    Christy you must find the perfect hat! I have been searching and searching for one that won’t crush the curls, but still covers my ears and looks super cute. I will pay you good money if you find one and make me one too! Right now my only solution is a HUGE hat I have, but it looks dorky (in a bad way).

    Thanks, Becky!

    Mandy, I’ve recently started thinking that earmuffs might be the only realistic solution. But alas, all the ones I’ve seen also look dorky—in a bad way.

    Love the wrap! If I can ever finish the scarf I’ve been working on, maybe I’ll give it a try. I’ve also got another couple pairs of Dashings ( I’ve been intending to make.

  6. […] thought the calorimetry hat would work, but it still is too much coverage. And so…I figured earmuffs may be an option. […]
