Leftovers

I found something to make with some of my leftover ball of Malabrigo worsted. I made an earwarmer. And now I want to make one in every colour!



This yarn is so soft, it is perfect for an earwarmer to wear in the cold. (I am someone who rarely wears 100% wool because my skin is so sensitive. I wore this out and about yesterday and it didn't itch at all - so you know it is really soft!) I get earaches in wind and cold, so often I wear an earwarmer instead of a hat. It used maybe .25 of a skein, if that. One skein could make at least four gifts!

The pattern is my own, a simple twisted rib, knit in the round on 4.5mm (7 U.S.) needles.
