Winter arrives and all of us start searching for the warmth, and choosing a convenient piece to wear is important to keep us warm, and for that I decide to knit my own piece which is an ear cover or earmuffs that is knitted and sewed by handmade to insure a perfect warmth for my ears.
I setup my tools and start knitting!!
Step 1: Tools and Supplies Needed:
- Yarn (black and military green colors)
- Yarn Needle
- Metal thick thread
- Wool fabric
Step 2: Take Measures
Start by measuring the perfect size for your ears, and make sure to make it fit well arround the ears.
Step 3: Sever and Cutting Fabrics
Cut the wooly fabric into two circles joined together. This peice will be the internal part of the ears cover.
Step 4: Form the Metal Base
Cut a 20cm metal piece and bend it in the form of a two circles joined together.
Role of this part is to insure the stability of the design.
Step 5: Knitting the External Part
Start knitting the external part by making two joined circles (convenient for your ears) about 10cm diameter.
For that try this easy method, first make a slip knot on the needle; make a yarn loop,insert the needle into the loop and draw up the yarn from the free end to make a loop on the needle. Pull the yarn ends firmly, but not too tightly to form the slip knot on the needle and This slip knot counts as your first stitch.
Step 6: Continue Knitting
Hold the needle with the slip knot in your right hand and with yarn from the skein to your left. With your left hand, make a yarn loop.Insert the needle into the loop. Still holding the loop in your left hand, with your right hand, pick up the yarn from the skein and bring it back to front around the needle. Bring the needle through the loop and toward you at the same time, pull gently on the yarn end to tighten the loop. Make it snug but not tight below the needle.
Step 7: Decorative Knitting
Decorate your earmuffs by knitting your own design. And here I knitted a green military color design on the external part.
Step 8: Set Up the Earphones
Cut through the internal part for the earphones.
This part is optional, which add a beautiful option to this earmuffs.
Step 9: Finishing
Join the external part with the internal part by sewing it at the terminal of the design by keeping the metal thread inside it to insure it's stability.
Step 10: Enjoy It !
Enjoy it by keeping your ears warm.
