FINISHING
Using US #8 DPNs, OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE, remove the provisional
cast-on and slide 16 sts on to one of the DPNs. Slide the 16 active sts that comprise the
Bottom Strap on to another DPN. Using the three-needle bind off technique bind off and
connect the top of Earflap #1 (Cast on edge) to the Top Strap (active edge). Make sure not to
twist the piece when connecting!
Using a tapestry needle, attach the Inner Earflaps to the WS of the Earflap sections of
the Headband. The WS of each piece should be facing each other. Just before sewing the
seam completely shut, fill the pocket made with approximately 2 oz of Polyfil stuffing (or
your choice stuffing) so that the pocket is full but not bulging. Repeat this process for the
other Earflap.
Weave in loose ends.
