Weave in ends

A wider ear warmer is easily achieved by adding more short rows in between rows 9 and 10. An adult warmer would require a larger number of cast on stitches (I would say about 100). having said that, this one fits me but is quite stretched and a little tight.

I knit this with leftover from Holly's Jacket and it took me less than 2 hours!

How do you turn work on circular needles? This pattern is adorable and I want to knit it for my niece, but I'm intimidated!

Just flip the whole thing 180 degrees and start knitting back the other way, it really isn't hard. :)
