In December I set up a market table at my part-time job at the Historic Boone Tavern. One item I couldn’t keep enough of was my Dream Weaver Earwarmer. As soon one would come off my hook, a customer would snatch it up.
I knew I had to share this pattern with my readers. Once you figure out the Celtic Weave stitch, the pattern is simple and quick to work up. It takes me a total of an hour to work it up and tag it!
I’m including a free pattern on my blog, but an ad-free printable PDF is available on my Etsy here. Included in the purchase is an exclusive video tutorial walking you through the intermediate Celtic Weave stitch. I provide a detailed photo tutorial as well! Please feel free to check it out to also support my business.
Note: When you purchase a pattern with me, you are supporting an artist to make more art!

I think I’ll say it a million times. When I first started learning how to do the Celtic Weave stitch, I wished there was a detailed video description on how to do it. If you try it out and get frustrated, I have made the video tutorial I needed when I first started working with this stitch. You can purchase the pattern that comes with the tutorial here.
Leaving a 5” tail, DC a foundation of 72 stitches. Sl st to join round.
With a yarn needle take the 5” tail and weave it in to close the gap at the bottom of the double crochet foundation. This will count as Round 1. (72)
Round 2: CH 1. HDC in each stitch around. Sl st to join. (72)
Change to J 6.0 Hook.
This begins the Celtic Weave part of the pattern.
Round 3: CH 3. Skip the first 2 stitches. Front post treble crochet (FPTR) in 3rd stitch from chain. FPTR in 4th stitch from CH.
Now you are going to back pedal and FPTR crochet in the first stitch that you skipped from chain. FPTR in the 2nd stitch you skipped from the chain.
Pattern Note: These treble crochets will be crossing
in front of the first two treble crochets like in the photo above.
Skip the next two stitches. FPTR in 3rd stitch from hook. FPTR in 4th stitch from hook. Back pedal to treble crochet in the first stitch you skipped. FPTR in the second stitch you skipped.
Repeat this for the rest of the row. Slip stitch in the Ch3. (72)
Round 4:Chain 3. Put a stitch marker on the third stitch from the previous round. Skip the first 4 stitches.
FPTR in the fifth stitch from chain.
FPTR in sixth stitch from chain.
Going back, back post treble crochet (BPTR) behind those treble crochets into the third stitch you skipped where you put a stitch marker at.
Repeat BPTR in the fourth stitch you skipped.
Skip two stitches. FPTR in third stitch from hook. FPTR in fourth stitch from hook. Again, BPTR behind in the first stitch you skipped. BPTR in the second stitch you skipped. Repeat this around the row until the end of the row.
You will finish this row by FPTR in each of the first two stitches you skipped at the beginning of the row, then backpedaling and back post treble crocheting (BPTR) in each of the last 2 stitches of the row. Slip stitch into the chain 3. (72)
Round 5: Chain 3. Put stitch marker on the 3rd stitch from the hook again. Skip the first 4 stitches. FPTR in 5th stitch from chain. FPTR in 6th stitch from chain.
Returning to the third stitch from the chain (where you marked your stitch), FPTR in the 3rd stitch from chain.
FPTR in the 4th stitch from chain.
Like in Round 3, FPTR in front of the previous two FPTR.
Skip the next two stitches. FPTR in third stitch from hook. FPTR in fourth stitch from hook.
FPTR in the first stitch you skipped. FPTR in the second stitch you skipped.
Repeat around the row until you get to the end of the row. You will finish this row by FPTR in each of the first two stitches you skipped at the very beginning of the row, then backpedaling and FPTR in each of the last 2 stitches of the row. Slip stitch into the CH3.
Round 6: Repeat Round 4.
Round 7: Repeat 5.
Round 8: Repeat Round 4.
Go back to using G Hook.
Round 9: DC in each stitch from the previous round.
Round 10: SC in each stitch from the previous round.
Leave a 5” tail to weave in.
