Provisionally cast on 27 stitches.

Row 1: Slip first stitch, K to second to last stitch, P last stitch.

Row 2: Slip first stitch, P to end.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until piece measures about 18″ from beginning. (If you’re worried about fit/tightness, I always find the best way is to put the band around your head, measuring it to your particular fit, and ending when it feels right for you).


  1. Graft the two ends together to create a seamless finish. (If you’re like me and are terrible a seaming, the braided gather is a great way to cover up a messy seam).
  2. Weave in ends.
  3. Block! The earmwarmer will have the tendancy to curl, but blocking will slightly reduce this.

  4. Cut three long strands from the same yarn. Using a crochet hook, fold the strands in half and draw them through the edge of the earwarmer. Leaving a loop at the top, draw the ends through the loop, attaching the strands to the earwarmer.
  5. Braid two braids from the 6 strings, hold them together, and wrap them around the width of the earwarmer. Continue wrapping until the gather is as big as you like. On the wrong side, tie the braids off and hide the ends in the wrap.

Did you finally get it pmlet 0848551? Slip first stitch, knit all the way to the next to last stitch then you Purl the last stitch. The wording could be confusing. Second to last stitch is actually the next to last stitch. I guess it would depend on what terminology you are used to. Hope this helpsi did not see that designer responded so I thought I would help. Have a great day!!! :)

Well, you either have to slip it, knit it, or pearl it. You can't just drop it. Why do you ask me what I think?

I'm just asking what I should do? Can't you give me an answer? Pat

You did not answer my question on the instruction for the first row of this headband. I don't understand it. Pat

I want to knit this ear warmer but I don't know what to do with the next to last stitch on the first row. It says to slip the 1st stitch, K to second to last stitch, P last stitch. What do I do with the second to last stitch?

You asked what would I do? That's why I'm asking you.

love this. its adorable
