I’ve been keeping the pattern-writing momentum going and I’ve got another new one to roll out today! May I present Rhubarbidoo:

I picked up three little balls of Shetland Spindrift on a trip to Edinburgh in June, with the intent to use them together for a project. I thought I’d knit up an earwarmer for cooler weather – I wear my hair up in a bun fairly often, but it’s hard to wear a hat when my hair is pulled up. So here’s my solution! Even though this pattern uses three colors, you’ll never use more than two colors per row, so don’t be intimidated by the use of multiple colors!

The pattern is worked in the round. I’ve suggested a 16″ circular needle, but it can be done on DPNs if they’re long enough and one is careful. I knit mine on DPNs, in fact, because I didn’t have the right size circs handy. But I think a ciruclar needle would be easiest!

Rhubarbidoo is named after a song by one of my favorite bands, Múm. You can find the pattern page here on Ravelry.
