I created these for my daughter and niece. They are getting into pretend and dress up so I thought they would enjoy pretending to be animals. (my daughter is modeling one of the headbands!) Enjoy!!

Supplies:
Worsted Weight yarn
Yarn needle
Girls headband
4mm crochet hook

Notes:
Sc Decrease
place hook in stitch, yo, draw loop through
place hook in next stitch, yo, draw loop through
yo, draw it through all three loops on the hook
Sc Increase
place 2sc in one stitch
I used girls thin headbands. They were about Ā½ inch thick. I found mine at Walmart. I wanted the end headband to be wide so I crocheted a wider band.
You can use the headband as a base and make any animals ears, use your imagination

Headband
ch 7, sc in 2nd space from hook, sc in each space to the end, ch1, turn *do not weave in the end, you will use it to anchor the piece to the headband.
Rows 1-68 sc across, ch 1, turn. At the end of round 68, finish off leaving a long enough tail to anchor the strip to the headband.
Starting with the beginning of the crocheted strip, fold about two rows over the bottom of the girls headband and anchor sew across the beginning chain using the small tail created when you started the piece. Tie off the yarn at the end of the row.
Pull the crocheted strip over the headband, pulling it a little tight as you go so that you have two rows to fold over the end of the headband. Anchor stitch across the last row, then sew back to the middle where the headband is. Anchor sew the strip to the headband by making zig-zags over the headband. When you get to the other side, tie off.

Oh those are so cute! Your DD has the right look for modeling, the spark in her eyes and the feisty look in general! Great job on the headbands!
