This week’s CRAFT Pattern Podcast features knit and crochet designer, Amy O’Neill Houck’s knit bike helmet ear warmers that are fast and easy to make. Amy says, “Year-round bicycle commuters know that rain and wind can chill our ears and lower your body temperature making your ride umpleasant. These easy-to-knit wool ear covers are designed to slide onto bike helmet straps. They’re warm and they’ll stay put.” You can see more of Amy O’Neill Houck’s needlework on her blog, The Hook and I.

For residents of the frozen tundra, like me, knitting these a bit bigger than they need to be…then shrinking in the washing machine will create a denser, more windproof earcover. You have to use real wool for this “felting” process to work. Lace something man-made or cotton through the strap tubes so they don’t felt shut in the wash.
