I love how cozy this Celtic Ear Warmer is! Although cable stitches can be a bit intimidating at first, once you get the hang of them they are so much fun!
This Celtic Ear Warmer is named after the sample of the cable pattern that you see within it. This cable pattern is sometimes referred to as the Celtic Weave stitch. It is one of my favourite crochet cable designs because the texture is so beautiful!
This ear warmer is worked in rows in this design and uses only three rows of the cable pattern. It’s just enough to give you a taste of working cable stitches without being too overwhelming. Of course, if you do run into trouble, be sure to check out the free video tutorial following the written pattern below.

The yarn shown in the photos above is called Scarfie by Lion Brand Yarn. It is an acrylic/wool blended yarn that is a bulky weight. I love how cozy it looks and it’s gradually changing colours. For the ear warmer you will need about one third of a ball (approximately 100 yards).
For this pattern you will also need a 6.5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below you will see me working with a Wooden Streamline crochet hook by Furls Crochet.

Fasten off, weave in your ends.
Fold your ear warmer in half so that the two short ends are touching. Taking the two shorter ends in each had, fold on end in half so that it is making a “u” shape. Now, keeping the far side away from you, slide the two short ends together so that the layers are stacking interlocking (i.e. you’ll have a layer of side A, then B, A, then B).
Now, using the remaining long tail, thread your needle and sew the two ends together being sure to work through all 4 layers of fabric. Fasten off and weave in your ends. Turn the ear warmer so that it is now right side out.
