Quick Yet Luxurious!
Bernat Velvet is a luxe-looking and feeling yarn, elevating every project you make with it. But it does have it quirks! One recommendation when using this yarn is to work tight stitches - and the Velvet Mobius Ear Warmer keeps this in mind.
Additionally, each ear warmer takes only 30-75 yards of yarn, so you can whip one up with your leftovers from other great Velvet yarn projects!
Made To Fit!
The Velvet Mobius Ear Warmer pattern includes six sizes to fit the whole family! If you are between sizes, just think about the fit desired - do you have a lot of hair and prefer it a little looser? Or do you want it nice and tight to protect from the cold?
With so many sizes to choose from, you're sure to find the right one for you. But then you have to decide... over the hair or under? Which do you prefer?

Helpful Links & Tutorials
Velvet Mobius Ear Warmer Tutorial - scheduled for 1-13-23
Sizes are written in the pattern as Baby-16”(Toddler-18”, Child-20”, Teen-22”, Woman-23”, Man-24”). If you prefer a tighter fit, you may wish to go down a size.
For custom sizing or other yarns/gauges, start with any number of fhdc stitches, working to the desired head circumference. Then, continue with the "flip beg of row over" instructions and the remainder of the pattern as written.
Note the way a mobius works - each "round" actually goes around the project twice. So for instance, Rnd 1 may start with 38 sts, but the second half of that rnd is worked into the bottom of those 38 sts - for a total of 76 sts made. However, the project is still only 38 stitches in circumference. A video tutorial will be added 1-13-23.
