Twist the Ear Warmer
Start by lying your headband flat with one end of the headband on your right and one on the left. Locate the center (between 7th and 8th stitch) of the end on your left and align it with the last stitch of the end on your right with the right sides facing each other. Fold the beginning stitch on the right end around to meet with the center of the left end on the opposite side, then, fold the remaining left side over the right.
Using your hook or darning needle, pull your end through the last stitch of the right end, the center stitch of the left end, and the beginning stitch of the right end.
Continue seaming together the ends, ensuring to include all layers of the folded pieces.
Unfold, so the right side is facing out, shape then weave in ends.
