I decided to knit up a little earwarmer for Arden after the umpteenth time I decided it wasn't worth the trouble of trying to wrangle a hat over her ponytail. Since her hair is long and it gets all gummy with food if it's not put back, 90% of the time it's up in a ponytail, twisties, or braids.
At first Dave had to get her to buy into the idea by putting on one of his running earwarmers, but now she gladly keeps it on when we're outside.
Here's the details if you want to make your own:
Size 2T and up, worked in Debby Bliss Baby Cashmerino on size 7 double-pointed needles.
Using long-tail method, cast on 88 stitches split evenly between four needles. Work 6 rounds in seed stitch. Switch to stockinette and work 12 rounds. Go back to seed stitch and work 6 rounds more. Bind off.
Easy peasy! I only worked on this a few evenings after Arden was asleep.
