Each hat that I've made is, in one form or another, just a variation of the first hat I ever made, the classic little Owl hat. Since then, I've branched into the sweet, woodland creatures like bears, foxes, and bunnies, adding little ears to the hats. But for the life of me, I could NOT find a decent pattern for these darn ears.
So with a little research and a bit of help from a few different ear patterns, I give you, the universal teddy ear! And I say "universal" because add a few more rounds and you could have a fox or even bunny ears :D
My Project Supplies: Lion Brand Worsted Yarn, 5.5m hook, tapestry needle
-I dc my hats so the ears were also dc. This pattern will work with sc, dc, or trc!
Start with a Magic Ring
Rnd 1: 6 dc in magic ring, sl st to join (6st)
Rnd 2: 2 dc in each stitch around, sl st to join (12st)
Rnd 3: *1 dc in first st, 2 dc in next st* Repeat * around, sl st to join (18 st)
Rnd 4: *1 dc in first 2 st, 2 dc in next st* Repeat * around, sl st to join (24 st)
Rnd 5: *1 dc in first 3 st, 2 dc in next st* Repeat * around, sl st to join (36 st)
** Repeat round to desired height for fox or rabbit ears*
Rnd 6: *1 dc in first 3 st, dc2tog* Repeat * around, sl st to join, fasten off (24st)
Please feel free to comment with questions or concerns!
I hope this helps to make all your woodland creature dreams come true!
