Everyone needs a bear headband, really!

I woke up yesterday and decided I wanted a brown headband with bear ears on it. That's a normal thought to have first thing in the morning, right? Anyway, the ears are based on what I learned from making the ears for a Stuffed Pooh. So here's the pattern I came up with in case anyone else has a bear headband need.



Bear Headband





Supplies:

-Acrylic worsted weight yarn (I think I used some of that Caron Wintuk stuff)
-G hook
-yarn needle
-tape measure
-stitch markers

Instructions:

Note: The ears are worked in spirals, that is you will be working in the round without joing rows.

Ears (make 2)

-ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook.

-2 sc in each sc.

-(inc. in next sc, sc in next sc) repeat for round.

-(inc. in next sc, sc in next 8sc) X 2

-work even for 2 rounds

-slip stich in next 3 stitches, sc in next 14 stitches, slip stitch in next 3 stitches.

-repeat last round

-Slip stitch in next 3 slip stiches, sc decrease, sc in next 10 stitches, slip stitch in the next 3 slip stitches, finish off.

Band

-Ch 12 (or you could chain more or less for a thicker or thinner band)

-Work double crochet rows until piece is long enough to fit around your head comfortably. Seam ends together.

-Sew ears to band and you're done!

The bear ears keep coming out looking like baskets, curled in very far on the open side. I'm using the right needle & yarn... How do you sew these onto a band so they look like ears instead of baskets?

VeganCraftastic said...

Hmmm, you must crochet a lot tighter than I do, maybe try making the ears with a larger hook? I didn't have any problems with them being too basket-like so that's all I can think of, hope that helps!

Haha..I love it and they look so cute on you! Can't wait to make some. thanks

I had a bear headband need! So far I'm done one ear, and I'm excited to be crocheting again after a long hiatus.

Anonymous: Mine looked like amphora too until I realized you have to fold them in half, then kind of curl the bottom in a circle to make them look like ears. Does that help?

How cute! I wish I could crochet, but I only know how to knit right now. Someday I'll have to learn and make those lovely ears!

I live in the twin cities (saint paul) and we are in dire need of three of these perfect bear headbands for a halloween costume...

I don't crochet, but what are the chances that you would be willing to help us out and make some cash??

Oh I do hope you'll consider it!

That is adorable! I love this, and will probably turn this into a hat for my youngest son. I made a cat ear hat for my little sister and now all her friends are ga-ga for it. They would probably be all boo-hoo for this, too! Great job!

Ms. Awesome said...

Ha! They are so cute! I think I will make this in some obnoxious color like hot pink. Excellent!

I just love this. Can't wear regular hats ... hair's too straight and the hat just slips up 'til I look really stupid. Have to wear bands 'cos my ears get cold. Finally: something cute w/o snowflakes. I'm really sick of snowflakes ... Thank you.

This is a great idea, could i use this to make yellow bear ears to raise money for the "children in need" charity please? They look like pudsey bear ears then. :)

Jessica said...

Sweet, a pattern. I make totally different ears for my teddy hats, but I wanted something different for my kitty hat. I seen these ears before but couldnt find a pattern and kept messing up myself. Thank you so much, this is awesome :D Now my kitty hat will look slighty different then my teddy bear hats :D :D

Thank you so much for posting this. My daughter and I are running the Disney Princess 1/2 marathon as Merida and the queen. I wanted to make a headband instead of a whole hat. This will work great! I can pin it in place and go!
