It’s almost time for the Easter Bunny to make an appearance and this year I decided to get in on the act.
Since it’s a bit too warm (and weird!) to wear an entire Easter Bunny costume, I decided to try my hand at a bunny ear headband instead.
It turned out so cute! It’s a little different from my usual patterns, but I made sure that it was beginner friendly.
So, even if you’re new to crocheting, you can still make one with this 30-minute bunny ear headband free crochet pattern.
For this pattern you’ll need to pick up some plain headbands. I got the inexpensive plastic kind at the craft store, but if you have an old one at home that you’re not in love with, feel free to upcycle it.
Unlike a lot of my patterns that use cotton yarn, this one really works better with thicker acrylic yarn, because it helps the bunny ears stand up.
So, while you’re at the craft store, grab a skein of both white and pink acrylic yarn.
One of the first things you’ll do is wrap the headband in the white yarn
It really makes the piece stand out and gives it a lot more stability. Another thing to note about this pattern is that you’ll need to double up on the yarn as you’re crocheting.
You’ll actually be holding two strands of yarn in your hand at all times. This is really important, because if you don’t use two, you’ll wind up with floppy, sad ears. No one wants that.
The great news is that the free crochet pattern just uses a simple stitch – hence why it’s great for beginners.
Since it is bit larger pattern than a lot of my other ones, expect to spend 30-minutes on it if you’re an intermediate to advanced crocheter. If this is your first crochet attempt ever, it’s probably going to take you about an hour or so.
The trick with this pattern is to be patient, watch your stitches, and have fun with it. Before you know it, you’ll have your own bunny ear headband!
If you make one, be sure to snap a picture and tag me on Instagram or Facebook! I’d love to see your bunny ear headband masterpiece!
