The Vanessa Earwarmer

Test knitting is a great way to help designers create and publish patterns. It is integral to helping ensure that patterns are written clearly and correctly. I like to test knit ever so often as a way to learn more about the design process as well as earn access to the newest patterns. I mostly find test knitting projects via IG or Ravelry.

Such was the case for the Vanessa Earwarmers. Fiber and Fern (aka Brie Christine ) sent out a call via IG for test knitters for this interesting headband pattern. I like headbands as my ears are always cold in cooler weather and they can accommodate my voluminous hair.

I choose to use some remaining Cascade 220 Worsted to work up the pattern. Since this was a test knit the pattern was in progress so I made sure to contact the designer about the pattern directions when needed. The earwarmers took me about two days to create using worsted weight yarn and US Size 6 needles. The project was pretty gratifying. Not only did I get to try a new stitch pattern, but I used up some stash yarn AND got a Christmas gift completed. Talk about a triple score 😊.

I highly recommend the Vanessa Earmwarm pattern if you are looking for a headband pattern that incorporates a little bit more of a challenge than just stockinette stitch. They are quick to make and generate a trendy accessory for fall/winter.

Until Next Time,
