Cabled Earwarmer Crochet Pattern

I literally cannot count the number of crafts I've learned on two hands. That's just how much I love exploring through the vast world of craftiness! 
One of the latest crafts I've considered re-learning is knitting. I've always preferred crochet, but over the past few years I've been tempted more and more often to change from my lovable hook, too two knitting needles. The countless amounts of beautiful stitches and stunning cables people can create with knitting is truly amazing! Yes, I admit it, I've been intoxicated with the green-eyed monster... So it should come as no great surprise just how thrilled I was to discover you can actually crochet a cable stitch! With this knowledge, I immediately got my hooks out, and created this lovely little pattern. I've also shared a video in the pattern below, to help out any cable stitch newbies.


What You'll Need
5.00mm Crochet Hook
100g 8ply Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle
Finished Size 
This headband fits all sizes
{Easily adjustable, as explained in pattern}


~ Note ~
{Chains at the start of a row count as the first Double Crochet of that row}

Taking your yarn and 5.00mm crochet hook, start of by making a Slip Knot, and then crocheting 16 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Double Crochet into every chain across. You should have 16 double crochets now.
Row 2 - 3~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into every stitch all across.
Row 4~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Crochet 1 Front Post Double Crochet into the next 8 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last 4 stitches.
Row 5~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Crochet 1 Back Post Double Crochet into the next 8 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last 4 stitches.
Row 6~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Crochet 1 Cable Stitch into the next 8 stitches. {Note: I have an easy video tutorial below on how to crochet the cable stitch.} Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last 4 stitches.



Row 7~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Crochet 1 Back Post Double Crochet into the next 8 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last 4 stitches.
Row 8~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Crochet 1 Front Post Double Crochet into the next 8 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the last 4 stitches.
Row 9~ Repeat row 7.
Row 10~ Repeat row 6.
Row 11 - 34~ Repeat rows 7 - 10 six times. {Note: You can either add or take away a couple sets of row 7 - 10, depending on your head's circumference.}
Row 35~ Repeat row 7.
Row 36~ Repeat row 8.
Row 37~ Repeat row 7.
Row 38~ Repeat row 8.
Row 39 - 41~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into every stitch all across.

When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the headband together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together. Once the band is slip stitched together fold the slip stitched part towards the inside.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.


Hope you all enjoyed this cable stitch pattern!

  2. I have been looking for a pattern like this! I love it, however, I cannot figure out how to back post double crochet into the cable stitch (row 7). When I do it, you cannot tell there is a cable stitch. Any advise?

    1. Hello Robyn!
      Are you crocheting your Back Post Double Crochets into the last stitch you made to finish crocheting the cable? Then the 5th stitch, 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st?
      If you're already crocheting into the correct stitches, maybe just crochet another row or two.
      Sometimes it can look like the cables disappeared until you crochet further along.
      Hope this helps!
