  1. Do you think this would stay on, in bed? I'm seriously considering it as my husband prefers to sleep with the bedroom window open, year round.

  3. I am always telling my kids to put on their nose warmers when going out in winter. When I found this pattern we were all cracking up. The whole family will be getting nose warmers in their stockings this year! Awesome pattern!

  4. I just want to thank you so much for this pattern!! Have begun going through "the change" in life and the nose gets very cold in evenings. Hope husband gets a laugh seeing me walk around house with this on, but I will at least have a warm and cosy nose. LOL Thanks again.

  6. I started to make this by casting 40 sts. onto dpn's. then split the 40 sts onto 3 dpn's. and joined into a Round. As I continue in ROUNDS, the piece is starting to look like an elephants trunk with a hole on both sides. I know that would be cute, but would not keep nose warm. I know I am doing something wrong. Do I just cast on 40 sts. to ONE of the dpn's and then with another dpn just start knitting them in ROWS back and forth?? I am going to try this tonight and see if I answered my own question. lol But this is too cute to just give up on. Thank you for your time. Pray you and your family are having a great holiday together with lots of nose warmers.

  7. I love it! It brings back memories. My grandma made these for us. Mine was sage green/white striped and had a tassel on the end. I knit one for a friend out of sock yarn. She didnt know anything like this existed. Yours turned out far better than mine. Thanks for the awesome pattern. Terri
