Size 10.5 circular needles, 16-24 in.
Cast on 72 sts.
Place marker. Join in the round.
Knit 2, purl 1 around.
Repeat until piece measures 8 inches long or until the skein is nearly used up.
Bind off using:a. *Knit 2 tog through the back loops (or front, either or, but not both; just be consistent in which you choose.) Place this new stitch on the needle in your left hand and repeat from * until there is one stitch left. Cut yarn and pull the end through the loop & weave in the ends.
Poof. You’re done. Worn scrunched down, folded over or pulled up around the ears he will be comfy. Awwww.

Another goodly event here in the foothills, we're under a beautiful blanket of freshly fallen snow. The heavens opened up yesterday and showered us with unmatchable loveliness.
