I made the fancy-looking yet but also simple crochet cat ear in the previous post and this easy crochet bunny ears headband free pattern is inspired by the upcoming Easter Bunny and Halloween season.
And I was thinking about crocheting something quick, easy, and bunny-related like a crochet accessory that is fast to whip up.
Since it’s a bit too warm (and weird!) to wear an entire Easter Bunny costume, I decided to try my hand at making a long eared bunny headband instead.
Beginner-friendly rabbit ears headband.
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 within 30 minutes.
For this easy crochet Easter bunny ears headband 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 acrylic yarn, because it helps the bunny ears stand up.
You can also use the cotton yarn with one strand to crochet this bunny ear and you will get the long floppy bunny ears instead.
So, while you’re at the craft store, grab a skein of both white and pink acrylic yarn.
Best yarn for crochet bunny ears headband.
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 bunny 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 a 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!

I'm having a problem with the ears falling down because the wool is turning on the headband. Any idea how to stop this. This is my 3rd attempt with two types of headbands now

"2sc in each st around (6)" I don't agree that http://inmyownstyle.com/2012/04/6-last-minute-easter-table-setting-ideas.html Mercedes

yes they should be 6 single crochet because on the first round we did 3 single. So 3x2= 6 stitches
