Crochet Bunny Headband - A Free Pattern




I am so ready for Spring to be here and with Easter around the corner, these headbands are perfect for both!

These work up fast (I feel I say that on EVERY pattern I make, but that is probably because I like patterns that I can have done fairly quickly). It's my go to!

To make a bunny headband you will need a 1-inch wide headband (don't worry if you have a wider or narrower one, we can adjust).

I found the ones I used at Walmart in the girls' department, they came in a 6-pack for only $3!




The best thing about this headband is that it uses hardly any yarn and is a great way to work through your scrap stash.

This would be a sweet gift or item at a craft fair and pairs well with the Berry Patch Bunny!

Materials -

• Size 4 worsted weight yarn in choice of colors for bunny and flowers

• 3.5 mm and 5.00 mm crochet hook (these are the hooks I use and love!)

• Scissors

Tapestryneedle

• Stitch markers

• 1-inch wide headband (directions included below to adjust for a wider or narrower headband)


US Abbreviations -
MC- Magic circle

SC- Single crochet

SC INC- SC increase

INV DEC- Invisible decrease

DC- Double crochet

Sl st- Slip stitch

CH - Chain



Headband-

 With 3.5 mm hook

To start the headband, make a magic circle with 10 SC, pull tight to close. You will want to tie a knot to secure your magic circle, this will prevent it from coming open once the headband is placed inside.

Rounds 1-70: SC around (10)


Note - We are making a tube to insert our headband into. If you have a wider or narrower headband adjust the number of SC in the magic circle accordingly. Example, if your headband is wider try 12 SC, if your headband is narrower try 8 SC.

Because of difference in tension you may need more or less than 70 rows to cover your headband. Feel free to test it out from time to time to see how it fits.


When your tube is at your desired length insert your headband and sew closed. This is very similar to closing a hat or amigurumi. Weave your tapestry needle in and out of the stitches until you reach where you started, pull tight to close the circle and secure.






Ears- Make 2

With 3.5 mm hook

Round 1: Make a magic circle with 8 SC

Round 2: SC around (8)

Round 3: SC in the first stitch and SC INC in the next, repeat around (12)

Rounds 4-6: SC around (12)

Round 7: SC in the first 2 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (16)

Round 8: SC around (16)

Round 9: SC in the first 3 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (20)

Rounds 10-21 SC around (20)

Fold your ear in half and SC across the top (this will help keep the ears from flopping forward or backward). Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.





Rose- 

Make 3 with 5.00 mm hook

Chain 24

Row 1: DC in the 2nd CH from hook, CH 1, DC in the same CH, CH 1, skip the next CH, *V-stitch in the next CH, CH 1, and skip the next CH*

Repeat this through to the end of the CH, ending with a V-stitch. You will have 12 V-stitches and 11 CH 1 spaces.

Row 2: CH 2 and turn, complete 5 DCs in the first V-stitch (this is your first petal), sl st into the CH 1 space, *repeat 5 DCs in the V-stitches and sl st into the CH 1 spaces for a total of 5 more petals. Complete the next 5 petals with 4 DCs each and the last 2 petals with 3 DCs in each (this will give a tapered look).

Fasten off leaving a long tail to sew together. 




Roll your petals together into a circle, starting with your tail end. Using your tapestry needle push through the first petal to the bottom of the flower.


Sew through each layer back and forth to secure each of the petals in place. Fasten off leaving your remaining tail for sewing onto the headband.




Assembly

First, sew both ears onto the headband evenly apart as pictured below.

Use the SC across the top to sew through on each side. I also recommend sewing up into the ear and back down on each side of the ear, this will strengthen the ear to remain in place.

Lastly, sew your flowers onto the headband. I started with the middle and aligned the others right next to it on either side.



Your bunny headband is complete! I hope you have enjoyed making this pattern.

Thank you for visiting,

Stephanie

  6. How do people make sure the wool doesn't turn on the headband? Mine keeps doing this and the ears flop down

  7. Quick question. I have a diagonal seam on both my headband and my ears. Are you joining after each round and if so, how do you not have the diagonal seam?

    1. Hi! You will want to work in a continuous round without joining, this will make it seamless for you. I hope you're enjoying the pattern!
