Headset Ear Covers


­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­When you have to wear a stupid headset for 3+ hours at a time, and you really don’t want cauliflower ears …

Size: To fit a Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB headset, but I think most of the padded ear pieces are about the same size

Knit Picks Andean Silk, much less than 1 skein
1 set of US #6/4.0 mm double pointed needles (set of 5)
Stitch marker (optional)
Polyfill (or whatever else you want to pad them with)
Tapestry needle

Gauge:  I didn’t bother checking as I was knitting and measuring as I went along ;)

CO 8 sts over 4 ndls; place marker (if desired) and join to begin working in the round, being careful not to twist.
K 1 round.
Increase round: Inc. in every st (16 sts).
Knit 3 rounds.
Repeat last 4 rounds twice more (16 sts on each ndl for a total of 64 sts).
Decrease round: K2tog to end (32 sts).
Knit 3 rounds.
BO all sts loosely.

Use some polyfill (or whatever) to stuff the covers.
When sewing in the ends, take this opportunity to “gather” the cover a little bit over the ear pads so that they stay on.

  1. Thank you for headset ear cover pattern! Exactly what I was looking for.

  2. Thank you so so much for publishing this pattern! It worked perfectly to make earpiece covers for my wireless headset, and now my ears are pain free!

  3. I do loom knitting and I was hoping to convert from needles to a loom knitting pattern. Thanks anyway.
