Here is the pic of the HORNEYS (sorry for the name, but a caracter in a series I'm reading by Sherrilyn Kenyon, has a caracter who has horns, and I was thinking of her when I made them. I should mail a pair to Sherrily Kenyon.
The horns in the photo are just slightly shorter than the ones in the pattern. I decided I liked them better longer.
and here is the pattern.
Red heart yarn.
Red for the horns,
And a 2nd color that will blend with your hair color.
Size G hook
***Note: in middle of round 3 you should turn the little cup you have made so that RS is facing you. It will be easier to do before right before you sl st to join.
RND 1: 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook. Sl st to first sc. Ch 1. Do NOT turn.
RND 2-3: 1sc in next 6 sts. ***Sl st to first sc. (6sts) Ch1.
RND 4: 2sc in each sc around. Slp st to first sc. (12sts) ch1.
RND 5-7: 1 sc in each sc around. Slp st to first sc. (12sts) ch1.
RND 8: (2sc in next sc, 1sc in next sc) repeat around. Slp st to first sc. (18sts) ch1.
RND 9-12: 1 sc in each sc around. Slp st to first sc. (18sts) ch1.
RND 13: (2sc in next sc, 1sc in next 3 sc) 4xs. 2sc in next sc, 1 sc in last sc. Slp st to first sc. (23sts) ch 1.
RND 14: 1sc in each sc around. Slp st to first sc. (23sts) ch 1.
RND 15: (ch 3, sk next sc, sc in next 10 scs) repeat 1 more time. Join with sl st to first ch 1. Fasten off.
Pinch tips to slightly curve inward.
Make 2 horns.
BAND ON TOP OF HEAD
Attach 2nd color yarn to first ch 3 space of a horn with a sl st.
ROW 1: ch 4,(counts as a tr) 3 more trs in same ch 4 space. Turn.
Row2-3: ch 4. 1 tr in each tr across. (4sts) turn.
After first side is done fasten off.
Repeat on second horn.
Do not fasten off after 2nd horn is done.
Put RS together, and sl st across, using only the middle 2 loops. (one from the back of one piece, and one loop from the front of the other piece.) Fasten off.
Horns should be curving slightly inward on both horns. Like this (____)
BAND ON BOTTOM OF HEAD
Attach 2nd color remaining ch 3 space on a horn, with a sl st.
ROW 1: ch 4 (counts as tr), 3 more tr in the same ch 3 sp. Turn.
ROW 2-9: ch 4, 1 tr st in each tr st. turn. (4sts)
Fasten off aften first side is done.
Repeat for second horn.
Do not fasten off on second horn.
Put RS together and sl st across using only the middle loops.
To make hair band larger or smaller just put in an extra row or subtract a row. It wonâ€™t matter if the seam is not center because your hair will cover it.

I'm confused about the need to turn it to the right side in the middle of row 3. Also, are you not turning at all, just slip stitching to the sc of the previous row and continuing along?
Love the way they look, just trying to nail down the pattern. I'm just getting used to following pattern and new to working in the round.

I made a tail also, wich was just a small triangle shape with a long version of stip like the head band.
Hope this helps and doesn't make it more confusing.
