Good morning! Are you awake?? Go grab some coffee!
Back in December I vended at an event for small lady businesses. A last minute decision prompted me to make what I am going to share with you today. My only regret is that I didn’t make more! These crochet fox ear FLEW off my display, I sold out within an hour of us opening. Lucky for you, I’ll show you how to make your own!
Here is what you will need:
Red Heart Super Saver Orange
Red Heart Super Saver White
Red Heart Super Saver Black
Crochet Hook size J (6.0 mm)
Plastic Sewing needle
Project Time: 1-2 hours (depending on how fast you crochet)
Project Difficulty: Medium (depending your skill level)
SC: Single Crochet
SC2TOG: Single Crochet two together
SC around the headband. There is no set amount that I would recommend.
As you continue around the band, keep sliding your stitches together. I did this every 10 or so, until you reach the end. Once you reach the other side of the band, tie off. Sew in your ends.
Use a marker to gauge where you want the center of the ears. Count three spaces to the right of your marker, slip stitch.
Row 1: In the same space as slip stitch, SC; SC in the next 7 spaces. Chain 1 (8)
Row 2: SC in the next 8 spaces. Chain 1 (8)
Row 3: SC2TOG, SC in the next 4 spaces, SC2TOG. Chain 1 (6)
Row 4: SC2TOG, SC in the next 2 spaces, SC2TOG. Chain 1 (4)
Row 5: SC in the next 4 spaces. Chain 1 (4)
Row 6: 2 [SC2TOG]. Chain 1 (2)
Row 7: SC2TOG. Tie off (1)
Repeat on the other marker. Instead of counting three to the right, count four to the right. Once you tie off the second ear, sew in your ends.
Around the ears:
In the space next to first stitch from the ear, slip stitch.
SC in next 5 spaces, however before you finish the final stitch, change color to black. Here is how I change colors:
Insert you hook into your stitch, yarn over and pull through. Before you yarn over again, switch to the next color.
Yarn over and pull through. this will give you a cleaner color change rather than completing your stitch and changing colors.
SC in the next stitch. At the top of the ear (row 7) [SC, chain 2, SC]. SC in the next space, again before you finish, change color to orange.
SC in the next five spaces. Slip stitch in the next stitch and tie off. Repeat on the second ear. Sew in your ends.
I also made just plain cat ears with this pattern. Instead of using orange and switching colors, just use black. It will look just as good!!
