I worked this ear warmer back in 2005 - or before. I decided to make some more, except I couldn't find my notes. 3 days later after multiple attempts I finally figured out what I did.
This pattern is easy. You only work cables on 2 of the 8 rows. You can easily adjust the pattern to other weight yarns. Just adjust the needles and either add or delete 8 stitches.
Remember patterns are guides - you are the ULTIMATE boss.
