I first devoured this combination of yummy ingredients at Frutta Bowls in Winter Park, Florida. The make it just right, but if you can’t travel I still want you to enjoy this treat, keep reading for the recipe. And also, excuse me while I shove deliciousness in my face during this earwarmer photo-shoot; it’s all in the name of good food.

This is an easy way to please guests with such minimal effort. We did a toast bar for my sister’s bridal shower and this won over the avocado toast! So here are the simple steps to making this must-have toast.

What you need to create this:

Toaster, Bread, Spreadable Brie, Fig Jam or Preserves, Basil (fresh is best, but dry is good too).

Step 1:

About the Traveling Vine Ear-warmer Knit Pattern:

The ear-warmer pattern is worked lengthwise and then seamed together. Therefore I found just under 4 repeats to do the trick, but each head size is different, so be sure to check head measurement and adjust accordingly. Since this is cinched together at the seam, it’s not critical to do all the repeats.

Special Stitches:

There are some combinations of increasing and decreasing stitches used in this pattern to achieve the infinity cable look. Also, here is a video to assist with the following stitches:
https://youtu.be/BdQwK8CR1z8

• M1R: Make one right, with LH needle, pick up cross-strand between 2 sts from back to front, knit lifted strand. One stitch increased leaning to the right.

• M1L: Make one left, with LH needle, pick up cross-strand between 2 sts from front to back, knit lifted strand through back loop. One stitch increased leaning to the left.

• Center double increase (increase 1 to 3): k1 through the back and front loop then slip the stitches off LH needle and onto RH needle, insert LH needle behind vertical strand between the 2 sts just made and knit through the front. Two stitches increased.

• 5-to-1 st decrease: This will be done on a wrong side row, the working yarn will not be needed and can be dropped while completing this decrease.
Slip the next 3 stitches to right needle, *pass 2nd st on right needle over 1st (which is the center st), slip center stitch back to left needle; pass 2nd st on left needle over the center stitch*; repeat from * to * once more. Leave the center stitch on the left needle, pick up yarn and purl center stitch. Four stitches decreased.

2/2 LCP– Two Over Two Left Cross Purl:
Slip two stitches to cable needle at front, p2, k2 from cable needle.

2/2 RCP– Two Over Two Right Cross:
Slip two stitches to cable needle at back, k1, p1 from cable needle.
