Does anyone know of any good unisex earwarmer patterns? I'm looking to make matching earwarmers for a couple, but the patterns I have are all pretty girly...  Undecided

A walk-in closet full of yarn isn't TOO much...

This one has no photo, but I'm guessing it looks pretty plain.  It says "perfect for a guy" at the top though...

And the Wedding Ring Cable Earwarmer (which may be a tad on the girly side)

I think as long as the color is pretty low-key, it's male-appropriate.  For a male I would probably use a neutral or dark brown in a nice even stitch pattern like moss-stitch/seed-stitch, then for her I would use a lighter shade of the same color (like... dark brown and taupe maybe) and that's where I would use cables.
Just my two cents.

Thanks for the links and suggestions! I have a little time to decide still. I may end up going the cabled route, but I'm not sure yet. I'll definitely post pictures when I'm through. Smiley

I have a pattern that is from the 50's.... vintage... but very unisex!! My mom used to knit them - I'll try to post the pattern tonight... or tomorrow morning. They are quite easy and you can do whatever you want to make them for whoever... does that make sense?

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.
