I made the ear warmer with worsted weight yarn (actually a caron cake). I am a little confused with the directions at the end. If the needles are in 1x1 position, how do you set up the 12 needles and put the stitches from the main bed and ribber on them? I am not seeing this in my head. Also, do you hand seam the ear warmer by hand? By the way, it came out very well except at the end. Waiting for a reply to finish it.

It was freezing here this morning - I was glad of these ear warmers, stayed in place better than a hat when I was jogging

it is late and i just saw your comment..ok you cast on 25 st 1x1 rib..so that means you have 13 st on main bed and 12 on the ribber ,,right? ok when you get done knitting you will transfer the ribber stitches to the mainbed BUT dont put them on the empty needles double them up ..starting with the 2nd stitch .so you now have 2 stitches on your mainbed needles ..i take the first stitch on the main bed and move it over to the next needle ..that one now has 3 stitches on it ...so you now have 12 stitches right ?

Now you will take your CO row from the other end where you started bring them up and hang them on those 12 needles too..you can just hang them on there you dont have to do stitch by stitch ,,....than i knit one row at a larger tension and than crochet it off or whatever your preferred way is ....i hope that helps ..

Thank you, Helgajr1. I would like to give this a try, but don't know how to do the fisherman rib. Is this something you could explain? Living in MI, at this time of year we need all the warmth we can get. Your headband is lovely.

Not Helga, but I think directions for various kinds of ribbing are hard to explain in words. Do you have the manual for your ribber? Seeing the sketches and pictures, along with step by step directions, is easier for me. A picture really is worth a thousand words.

If you don't have your ribber manual, you can download one (for free) from www.machineknittingetc.com

Hello hope you keep warm <smile> you do know they are knitted on a Bulky knitting machine .Right? and you have to have a Ribber on your machine ...if you have that, than look in your instruction book that comes with your machine ,it will tell you how to set your machine up to do fisherman rib ...sometimes it is also called english rib (i think )

i looked at your profile and see that you knit on the Brother 260 ,,GREAT MACHINE..this is the setting for fisherman rib ..make sure you change your tension to 6 or maybe 7 ..i usually do 7 and than dont forget to change it back when you do 1x1 again .. the reason i say that is because i have forgotten before LOLOLi hope this helps Helga
