This is an Infinity Crochet Pattern. Come learn more about Infinity Crochet Cables.

The vine earwarmer is a first-ever seen of its kind. Just like the many species of newly discovered plants, we can discover new ways to transform our yarn. While I’m still working on my green thumb as an aspiring gardener, for now, I find the vines in crochet are longer lasting.

Notes

  • Helpful Video of Traveling Vine Cables and joining the ear-warmer can be found below.
  • The ear warmer is worked lengthwise and then hand seamed and cinched.
  • Ch 1 at the beginning of rows does not count as a stitch.
  • Some rounds will increase in stitch count due to floating stitches and then decrease again on the next round.
  • If the cables pull in too much and the fabric does not lay flat, simply add one yarn over to each floating stitch.
  • If the cables are too loose, take away one yarn over from each floating stitch.
  • Cleaner cables are achieved by working the post stitch into (through) post stitches by grabbing two strands of the stitch instead of working around the entire stitch.
