Bunny ears bow headband free crochet pattern

Hey guys, I’m back with another free pattern! It’s a simple and sweet “bunny ears” bow headband.

I’ve been snowshoeing for the first time this year and I really enjoy it. It’s a workout without feeling like you’re working out. I’ve gone 3 times so far and hopefully I’m going to get out a few more times before winter ends. Anyway, I wore a different hat each time, and each time my head kept getting too warm, so I’d take it off, but then my ears would start freezing. Obviously the solution was a headband!

Well it just so happened I had a bit of leftover alpaca yarn from a scarf I made for my boyfriend’s christmas present..which I made in order to use up the leftover yarn from a hat I made for my boyfriend a couple months earlier. LOL

So it was a perfect combination of leftovers and necessity.

You can adapt this to fit whatever yarn and hook size you’ve got, but here’s what I did:

Supplies

– 5mm hook

– bulky weight (5) yarn

Of course I used up my leftover yarn for this, but if you want to buy yarn especially for this project, try Wonderfluff from Knitpicks*! It’s a gorgeous mix of alpaca, merino and nylon. (*affiliate link)

My headband is 3 inches wide and 27 inches long.

Okay so chain 2 and dc into the first ch.

R1: ch 1 turn, 2dc into the dc.

R2: ch 1 turn, 2dc into each st (4)

R3: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (4)

R4: ch 1 turn, 2dc into first and last st, dc into each st between (6)

R5-R6: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (6)

R7: ch 1 turn, 2dc into first and last st, dc into each st between (8)

R8-R9: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (8)

R10: ch 1 turn, 2dc into first and last st, dc into each st between (10)

R11: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (10)

R12: ch 1 turn, 2dc into first and last st, dc into each st between (12)

R11-R33: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (12)

I had a finite amount of yarn so I had to start decreasing here, but I would have made the headband 28 or 29 inches long if I could have, so you may want to do 2-4 more rows.

R34: ch 1 turn, dec the first 2 st tog and the last 2 st, dc into each st between (10)

R35: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (10)

R36: ch 1 turn, dec the first 2 st tog and the last 2 st, dc into each st between (8)

R37-R38: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (8)

R39: ch 1 turn, dec the first 2 st tog and the last 2 st, dc into each st between (6)

R40-R41: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (6)

R42: ch 1 turn, dec the first 2 st tog and the last 2 st, dc into each st between (4)

R43: ch 1 turn, dc into each st (4)

R44: ch 1 turn, dec the first 2 st tog and the last 2 st, dc into each st between (2)

R45: ch 1 turn, dec2tog (1)

Finish off and weave in both ends. Then wrap it around your head and tie it! I’ve left mine tied and have been slipping it on and off as if it’s sewn shut so I don’t have to re-tie it and re-tangle my hair up in the knot LOL
