Ear warmer band for a Tiny Tear Sized Doll (16")

This free knitting pattern is for an earwarmer band for a 16" doll (equivalent to Tiny Tears in size) using self patterning yarn.  Simple to do as the shaping is achieved by using different sized needles, this is perfect for using up oddments and would also make an ideal first project for a child to knit their own dolls clothes with guidance as elastic could optionally added to aid fit if required.
