FREE Kelly's Mountain Single Cable Earwarmer Knitting Pattern

I've been writing down my patterns for a few years, and have a few (like my mittens) that have been well-loved since I began offering them for sale in 2017. 
As a thank you for continued support, I'll be featuring free versions of some of my knitting patterns here on the blog! You'll be able to purchase ad-free versions to download but this free tutorial is perfect for those new to knitting, new to reading patterns, or those who are looking for affordable options. 
Please do not copy and reshare this pattern elsewhere; instead, feel free to send the direct link to this page to your friends or link to it in your blog post with credit!
