Crochet Cat Ears

Hey all! I want to inform you that I redirected my blog to http://callmeraecrochet.blogspot.com. Please update your subscriptions there to continue following my blog. I will leave this one available to you for awhile to make sure I don't lose anyone! Thanks again!

Cat Ears




Back, side and front of ear.
What you need:

  • G hook (4.00mm) crochet hook

  • 2 colors of 4ply worsted weight yarn (outside color and inside of the ear)

  • scissors

  • yarn needle


Make 2 of inside colors first, then start on outsides.



Starting with the inside color first, then outsides afterwards.

Row 1: ch 8.

Row 2: ch 1, sc in second ch from hook and across to the end.

Row 3: ch 1, turn, sk first st, sc in the next 5 sts, sk the second to the last st and sc in the last.

Row 4: ch 1, turn, sk first st, sc in the next 3 sts, sk the second to last st and sc in the last.

Row 5: ch 1, turn, sk first st, sc in the next 2 sts, sk the second to last st and sc in the last.

Row 6: ch 1, turn, sk first st, sc in the next st, sk the second to last st and sc in the last.

Row 7: ch 1, turn, sk the next st and sc in the last. Fasten off. Do not fasten off for the outside color.



Crochet Ears Together

Taking the inside ear piece, align it with the outside piece you are working on.



2 sc through the top point of both pieces, binding them together, continuing down all sides (2 sc in the other two points of the ear as you make your way around).

Tip: As you are crocheting around the ear, hide your loose ends inside the ear as you go along.



When you reach the top, fasten off with a sl st and a tail to hide away.



When you are finished, start working on your second outside ear color and repeat the instructions above when you are finished.



Note: If you need bigger ears, increase the ch on the first row. Remember for every row, you are skipping the first stitch and the second to last as you continue decreasing the rows.



Have fun making your kitties!

  3. This is fantastic! I really needed an easy and simple (I am a novice at crochet) but cute cat ear for a hat I made for my niece. This worked perfectly! Wonderful for attaching to regular beanies to make them cute for kids. Also crocheted a thin headband (ring that fits under hair and holds bangs back) and put more ears on that for summer time wear. She loves them! Thank you for making this adorable look SO simple!
