  • Adjust the width by increasing/decreasing stitches in multiples of 5+3.

Pattern Instructions:

Initial Row:

  • Begin with foundation single crochet 18 (or a multiple of 5+3 to adjust width).

Row 1:

  • Start with a chain of 3 (this counts as your first dc).
  • Double crochet in each fsc across.
  • Turn your work.

Row 2 (RS):

  • Ch 3, then dc in the next 2 dc.
  • *Sk the next dc, fptr around the next dc.
  • Working in front of the st just made, fptr over the skipped st.
  • DC in the next 3 dc.
  • Repeat from * across the row.
  • Turn your work.

Row 3:

  • Ch 3, dc in the next 2 dc.
  • Bpdc over the next 2 fptr.
  • *Sk the next dc, 3 dc in the next dc.
  • Skip the next dc, bpdc over the next 2 fptr.
  • Repeat from * until 3 DCs are left.
  • DC in the last 3 dc.
  • Turn your work.

Row 4:

  • Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc.
  • *Sk the next bpdc, fptr in the next bpdc.
  • Working in front of the st just made, fptr in skipped st.
  • DC in the next 3 dc.
  • Repeat from * across the row.
  • Turn your work.
  • Repeat Rows 3-4 until the ear warmer reaches the desired length, ensuring a snug fit around the head.

Final Row:

  • Ch 1 (this does NOT count as a st), then sc across the row.
  • Fasten off.

Finishing Instructions:

  1. Align the right sides together and sew the ends using your preferred method (such as a slip-stitch seam).
  2. Create the gathered section:
    • Thread a long piece of yarn through the 3 cables, essentially weaving it in and out as shown in the appendix.
    • Pull the yarn ends through the opposite side and tighten.
    • Knot the ends securely on the back side after pulling tight.
    • Adjust the ear warmer so the gathered portion sits well.
