Need a quick hot-weather alternative to a #pussyhat? Here’s a kitty-eared headband that’s 100% customizable – just add more rounds for bigger ears, omit rounds for smaller ones.

Please read through the whole pattern before you begin.

• 2 colors of yarn (the second color is to make a contrasting border)
• a plastic or solid-core headband you can wear comfortably for several hours
• a crochet hook (see section on Gauge below)
• stitch marker
• yarn needle
• optional florist’s wire
• optional sewing needle and thread

This pattern is written for worsted-weight yarn, but ANY yarn will work – just add or omit rounds as needed.

Using a D (3.25mm) hook: 5 sts x 5 rounds = 1 inch.

For ears that stand on their own without internal support, tight gauge and acrylic yarn are best. (Small hook + tight gauge = nice, stiff ears.) If you crochet with a looser gauge or use a natural fiber yarn, you’ll want to create an internal wire frame to hold your ears up (instructions included).
