- A Knifty Knitter loom which can be found in the Knifty Knitter Round Loom Set though you can also purchase it separately. I used the red loom for this tutorial.
- Any yarn works but I used one strand of Charisma Brown and the weight is 5.
I’ve also done it with 2 strands of thinner yarn.
- Knifty Knitter Hook tool
- Crochet Hook
- Plastic Needle or Metal Needle ( I prefer metal)
- Chain Cast On 10 pegs. You can use your knifty knitter or crochet hook. I find the crochet hook easier.
- E-wrap knit four rows onto the 10 casted pegs.
- Gather Bind Off. To do this, you’ll need to bring the first loop over to the second peg and knit over. Continue doing this with the remaining loops…2 over 3, 4 over 5, 6 over 7, 8 over 9, 9 over 10…
- Cut working yarn and leave a long enough tail to for sewing and pull that piece through the last remaining loop on the peg. This would be the 10th loop.
- Repeat step 1-4 and make another ear and sew the two wrong sides together! Or you can sew it differently together to get a different look.
- Repeat steps 1-5 two make one more ear!
- Attach both to any hat you desire!
- Take lots of picture of your completed work!
- Share this Tutorial with others via Twitter, Facebook, and more!
- Please feel free to post picture links to your “animal eared” projects!
It’s been such nice weather that we’ve spending whatever chance we get outdoors. Today Owen swung in a swing for the first time and really liked it. I’m sure he can’t wait to be running after his big sister Melody whom is getting harder to keep up with when she’s at the park! Any big plans for the 4th of July? I’m still deciding what will be on the menu! Melody has a requested a Watermelon so we’ll be having that for sure! I’m waiting to see what my local grocery store will be having on sell that weekend before I plan meals too far ahead!
