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!
If you did crochet this, please post a photo of your creation onto my Facebook Page.
I'd love to see it!
Have a lovely day crocheting,

  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!

  5. Hi! I am also very confused on row 7, ? IN total is looks like you should have 15 stitches? but I don't understand where you get these from? There isn't a clear row there is at the start and the end but it splits for the cable bit? Is that meant to happen? Perhaps i did row 6 wrong but I don't think so. hope that makes sense...

    1. Sorry for the double post but I may have worked it out, your instructions for row 7 are:

      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.

      Should it be 4 stiches rather than 8?

  6. Hello Kimberley,
    It should be 8 Back Post Double Crochets, NOT 4. Since a cable stitch usually consists of 8 stitches, you need to crochet 8 Back Post Double Crochets so you don't lose any stitches.
    Hope this makes sense,

    Olivia

    1. Hi! Thanks for replying. I thought that but I don't understand how t do it as there isn't a clear line of stitches it looks like 2 separate ones? Do you have a video without steps missed out or a video for row 7 at all? Sorry I've tried so many times can't get it to work lol

    2. Sorry, I don't have a video :(

    3. No worries, I tried to do more of it to see if I could work it out. it seemed to be going ok, but it seems half my pattern is coming out on each side! haha no idea how! Like the cable is going diagonally one way, then there is just normal stitches but if you turn it around it is on the other side! I'll try again, any ideas what Icould be doing wrong?

  7. Just confused on row 3 to row 4....row three should have 16 stiches (of double crochets) correct? but then on row four there are 15 (3 dc's, 8fpdc's, 4dc's). Am I missing something?

    1. The two chains at the start of the row count as the first stitch :)

    2. I am confused on this too. So I chain 2 then I make my first double crochet, this counts as one? Then I make two more, or 3 more double crochets?

  12. Can you please explain step 7? I read through the comments but it still not making sense to me. I know how to back post DC but it is unclear to me which posts to start with since the Cable Stitch posts are pretty grouped together.
