Gauge
14 sc + 18 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm).
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.

Notes
1. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st.
2. Earmuffs are worked in continuous rnds; do not join and do not turn at beg of rnds. A marker is used to indicate the beg of rnd. Move marker up as each rnd is completed.
