Baseball Cap Ear Warmer Thingy

I don't know what you call this, but my husband likes them.  Personally, I would just wear a hat that covered my ears, but there's no explaining the oddities of men.



Materials:
US 8 circular (16-24”)
Worsted weight yarn (about 100 yards)
Notions: yarn needle
Gauge: 20 sts x 26 row = 4 inches (rib pattern, unblocked)
Sizing: Fits up to 22" head circumference.

Abbreviations:
BO = bind off in pattern st using a knitted bind off method.
CO = cast on
P2tog = purl 2 sets together
K2tog = knit 2 sets together
SSK = slip 1, slip 1, knit slipped sets together.

Notes:
Because of the nature of the loose nature of knitted cast-on in R13 (even more loose if you choose to do a backward cast on instead), it is recommended that the first row of live sts (R14) on this cast on be worked with a tighter tension than the rest of the rnd over the cast on sts. Also, because of the loose nature of the knitted cast on method, you may want to work a crochet edge, such as a crab stitch or a blanket edging, around the opening in the fabric to secure it and give it structure.
