One of my good friends has a birthday in November, and so I thought she needed a little something special to keep her warm during the cold season (ugh... Utah weather). As a side note, I really love living on the east coast where it is warm and pleasant through the winter months. I really don't miss the snow. But I do enjoy making knits for all my family and friends to keep them warm while they are burrowed in the snow.
I decided on a simple ribbed ear warmer (found free here). It really is a simple pattern, and the end results are lovely. It could easily be dressed up with a knitted flower, or pin, a ribbon.... really anything, or just worn plain (that's how I like it, so that's what I did).
The button was nothing special, just something that I had on hand and matched. I do like that the increases create additional holes so that if it is not tight enough there are different options of where to button it.
Overall, I really liked the finished project and hope that she does as well. I might even make one for myself.
