Knit Sweet Braided Ear Warmer Pattern

Hi Friends! Today's free pattern is this chunky Sweet Braided Ear Warmer (so generic, right?). I recorded a video for C4R & C4L Cable stitches and figured I might as well make something out of it!

This post contains affiliate links. Please see bottom of post for more information.

I used Hobbii Yarns Amigo in the beautiful Cognac color! If you're shopping locally, any super bulky yarn will work. I recommend Lion Brand's Hometown USA 100% acrylic yarn. Another great option is Wool Ease Thick and Quick, a wool blend.

The pdf is FREE in my online shop for today only (11/18/21)! Click on listing below.

After, you can find the $2 pdf pattern in my shops or save it as a favorite.
