Eugenia Kim Cat Headband Free Knitting Pattern

The inspiration for this knitting pattern comes from this Eugenia Kim Cat Headband. I’m a big fan of Eugenia Kim’s fun designs and chunky knits. I was immediately drawn to this style because I’m a total cat lady! The cat ears are such a cute addition to a basic headband. This headband knits up really fast thanks to thick yarn and large needles. The headband is stretchy so it can also work for older kids/pre-teens. 
Yarn: Loops & Threads Cozy Wool in Pewter
Needles: Size 13 circular, 16 inch
Double pointed needles sz 13
Yarn needle
Knitting Pattern:
Using the circular needles, cast on 36 sts. Join together. Work in K1, P1 ribbing for 5 inches. Bind off. 

To add the cat ears:

The ears are placed 1 1/2 inches up from the front brim. There are spaces 1 1/2 inches apart. With the double pointed needles, pick up 6 sts. Knit 5 rows. Knit 2 together at the beginning of each row until you are left with 1 stitch. Bind off.

The the ear again on the rows directly behind the first. This double layer gives the ears more dimension and prevents them from flopping over.

Tie the two ears together at the top. Sew the side seams closed and weave in ends. Make the other ear approximately inches apart from the first.

    A friend went to the women's March in DC a few months ago and she ask if I could make a pink winter hat with cat ears. After much research, I made it for her and since I already have her measurements, I was able to finish it in a couple of hours. I forgotten about that until (by serendipity) I saw your pattern for this head warmer with cat ears.
    I knew she would LOVE it so I made it for her using pink yarn and I stuffed each ear with a small amount of pillow fiber and that made the ears nice and plump. She lives in San Francisco, CA so, her nights can be chilly all year around and when she takes her dog Daisy to the dog park and wears her band, she is constantly asked where she got it? Specially because I also made a head warmer for Daisy and Daisy is a hit with all the other dogs, every dog wants a Kitty Cat headband. Thank You
    But, what I like to know is this: OMG….YOU and your family are beautiful. Your hair is like looking at gold. So impeccably radiant.
    (Sorry, not a crip. Just making an honest and humble comment.
