This was made easier by the fact that the ear pieces come off of the head band.
Cotton(ish) yarn from Vickie Howell (I used cotton harvest, jade jersey, and cotton field)
The pattern for the motif ends on round 5, so I pick up at round 6.
Round 6: join into a sc in one of the ch 3 spaces, sc in the same space and in the next 8 stitches, skip 2 stitches, *7 sc, skip 2, repeat from *5 times, 8 sc, turn
The rest is worked in rows to leave room for the wire.
Row 7: ch 1, 7 sc, skip 2, *5 sc, skip 2, repeat from * 4 times, 7 sc, turn
Row 8: ch 1, sc in each stitch around (44 stitches)
Row 9-10: repeat row 8
Row 11: repeat row 8, ch 5 at the end and sl st to create a loop
