Kitty ears headband crochet pattern:

Before creating the slip knot, leave a 3-meter tail. This tail will be used later to crochet the border of the headband. Create a chain with a length such that, when stretched, it matches the circumference of the head. You can make an odd or even number of chains.

Join with a slip stitch in the first chain, ensuring the chain is not twisted.

Round 1: ch 2, HDC sh in next chain and all other chains around. Sl st to top od starting ch 2.

Round 2: ch 2: HDC sh in next st and all other stitches around. Sl st to top od starting ch 2.

Repeat Round 2 until the headband reaches the desired width. In my gauge, I completed a total of 11 rounds.

Round 12 (border): sl st in each stitch around. Join.

Return to the initial tail or attach a new one, then repeat a slip stitch in each stitch of the first round.

Row 4: ch 1, 2 SC in 1st st, SC in next 4 stitches, 2 SC in last st. Turn.

Rows 5 -8: ch 1, SC in next 8 sts.

SC around the 2 sides of the ear. Make 2 single crochet stitches in the top corner. Do not cut the yarn.

Crochet kitty ear inside (make 2)

Repeat the same steps with the white color for the inner ear. Fasten off.

Place the inner ear color over the outer ear color. Proceed to single crochet around the edges of the ears, utilizing the outer ear color. Optionally, you can add a crab stitch around the edge of the ear at the end. Fasten off, leaving an extended tail for sewing.

Position your ears on the headband where you desire, then secure them in place with pins. Once you’ve arranged them to your liking, use a yarn needle to sew them onto the headband. How you sew them can influence the final appearance of your headband or hat.
