I’ve teamed up with Marie of Underground Crafter, and 27 other bloggers for the 2019 Christmas in July Make Along! What is really cool about this particular make along is that there is a variety of projects including crochet, knitting and sewing. For a full schedule of all 29 bloggers, more information on the make along, and to enter the giveaway, visit Marie’s blog HERE.
Today is my day to share with you, and I signed up for a knitting pattern. If you are a regular here, you know that this is the first knitting pattern I have shared on the blog – how exciting! I took a couple of knitting classes a year or two ago at my favorite local yarn shop – Four Purls (check out my Visiting Four Purls Yarn Shop post), and I have been dabbling in it a little here, and a little there, but this is my first published pattern. Quite an accomplishment!
This earwarmer takes a little bit of time, but is comprised of only simple knit and purl stitches, perfect for a beginner!
If you are curious about the name, “In Succession”… I struggled a lot choosing a name for this pattern, so I broke it down. This stitch pattern is called a 1 x 1 Rib Stitch. Another way to say/define one by one is in succession, so that’s what I went with. It’s a little different, but kind of neat, and leaves the door open for more patterns in the line!

- Small Amount of Chunky Weight #5 Yarn, or 2 Strands of Worsted Weight #4 Yarn – I used two strands of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in the Dark Olive colorway
- L11/8mm Knitting Needles
- Tapestry Needle for Sewing and Weaving in Ends
Yarn Alternative: 2 strands held together of Berroco’s Vintage Yarn.
The teen/adult small version took me 3 hours to complete.
Toddler: 3 3/8″ Wide by 16.75″ in Length to Fit Head Circumference of 19″
Child: 3.75″ Wide by 19.13″ in Length to Fit Head Circumference of 21″
Teen/Adult Small: 3.75″ Wide by 19.13″ in Length to Fit Head Circumference of 21″
Adult Large: 3.75″ Wide by 20.5″ in Length to Fit Head Circumference of 22.5″
Not essential. Just make sure length before seaming is roughly 2″ smaller than head circumference.
Toddler size shown, with child, teen/adult small and adult large in parenthesis.
If you decide to make this smaller or wider, subtract or add 2 to the cast on, which will subtract or add 3/8″.
Cast on 16 (18, 18, 18).
R2 – 76 (85, 85, 90): (Knit 1, Purl 1) 8x (9x, 9x, 9x).
Bind off, and leave longer tail for sewing.
There is no right or wrong side as they both are identical, so just pick the one you want to be the wrong side. Fold the earwarmer in half so the “wrong sides” are facing each other. Whipstitch closed.
Weave in ends.
And there you go, super easy!

wow, so cozy! love the idea of crafting for december in July, just haven’t quite gotten around to it. For starters I would like to make succah decorations! thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!
I feel like every year, I start thinking about it in July, but then I blink and December is here, and I am rushing to finish gifts. I am trying to be more aware this year.
Looks really cozy. This is a great project to start for fall. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned.

Such a pretty band, that is an earwarmer, too! Love how you can make this your own style by changing up colors and even yarn texture (don’t know if that’s the right verbiage! LOL!) Thanks for sharing at Tuesday Turn About!
I am not sure what the correct word would really be, but I totally get what you are saying! There are so many fun yarns out there to play with.
I had no idea that you knew how to knit. How fun to be able to have knitting skills! I keep hoping to have some, and I’ve had it on my list for the last 3 years to learn. I have one failed attempt at a sock. I learned that socks are not a very beginner pattern….LOL
Haha! My knitting skills are pretty basic, but I can defend myself with the two basic stitches. I would like to practice more. It’s just that it takes me so much longer to knit than crochet. You’re much braver than I trying socks! My first project to learn stockinette (knit and purl) was a scarf. I never finished it, but I got a hang of the stitch pattern.
