So I have quite short hair. Things like the Caliormetry don't really work for me. However, due to also having short hair, I often don't like wearing a hat. Any ideas?

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

What about ear muffs?  I'm sure you could knit up something round and then run elastic through it and just slip them over your ears to keep them warm, maybe knit an i-cord or something to attach them.  It would be way better than cheap-o earmuffs you get at the store with the plastic headband thing that ALWAYS pulls your hair.

As a person with short hair I can say that I would avoid Caliormetry at all costs.  It just seems too wide and I think un flattering.  A problem also arises when people with short hair try and tie something at the back of the neck - it always rolls up (or is it just my funny shapoed head?).

It is not knitting but grab a pair of earmuffs that go around the back of your head.  Your ears will be warm and hair undisturbed.

I have short hair and find hats that sit slightly further back (and allowing a fringe to be seen) are acceptable. I knitted this hat as the girl who made it had short hair - http://leftinstitches.blogspot.com/2005/12/dobby-hat.html

I agree.  I have short hair and found that if I make my hats 1/2 inch shorter than normal, they fit and look better.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

If you were interested in doing earmuffs, the newest issue of Knit.1 has a pattern for covering earmuffs. You knit covers for the ears, and then do an i-cord around the plastic thing.
