Can anyone help me. My husband asked me to make him ear covers to go over his baseball hat. I have looked online and not found any knitted patterns for something like this. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? He wants the ear bans or covers to go over the bill of his hat. He does not ask me to make anything for him as the grandkids keep me busy knitting. So I really want to make this for him. If anyone knows of a pattern it would really help me out. Thanks
I have not seen anything like this but I am always looking for a good cap pattern. These are difficult to find.
But I have a couple of ideas:
My husband, a huge SF Giants fan has a hat has "flaps" that fold up into the hat when not in use. Needless to say, they are thinner material than the hat itself. So I am thinking that such a flap could be made from sock wool and stitched onto his cap. This was not individual flaps but a long flap that reached from ear to ear. I have a similar cap that I got for skiing so I bet a pattern for one exists on-line somewhere.
Differently, how about a head band that covers his ears and the back of his head. He would wear under his hat. It is my experience that men hate to take off their hats so you would not know whether its attached or not. There are many headband patterns that you can google.
i saw one in a catalog to purchase for 4.99, i think it should be easy to replicate. you need to make a headband with a slit for the bill of the hat and just a couple of rows wider over the ears. try knitting this with a dark color for your guy or in camo yarn to hide any mistakes. think horizontially rather than vertical for the headband. it also helps to draw it out. i haven't perfected my pattern yet, due to a sudden illness with my mother, but i have used black sock weight yarn and a size 6 needle. the stitches are tighter and i intend on doubling it for warmth. so far it looks almost identical to the photo i saw. when its done i will gladly share with everyone. please pray for my mothers recovery and if anyone has any soft , cashmere type yarn they'd like to donate to me for gloves and socks for mom i'd be very appreciative. she gets very cold after dialysis and her hands and feet are so icy, she's in her late 70's and i want to put something soft on her. God bless each and every one.

Jinx, that is perfect. It did not turn up in my seach. Thanks for finding it. :)
I just saw one on Kramer yarns. It's free.
Thanks to all. What a great site this is. When I get the ear warmers for the baseball hat done I will post pictures. Thnaks again to all for the great information. Judy
I've seen them for sale in a catalog or two that has come to the house, but I can't remember which one - perhaps L. L. Bean?? Good luck. They look clever.
I could not find the bike helmet in Knitting Patterns Central? I went through all the hat patterns? Anyone else have trouble finding it? Karen in Idaho
Thats the one I was referring to. It looks like it would fit under a ball cap
