Crochet Cat Ears Video Tutorial And Free Pattern!


I was trying to decide what to be for Halloween this year and I just could not decide. Then I thought about it for awhile and realized how fun it would be to match my sweet Ziggy! So I decided to be a black cat, meow :) I knew I wanted to have a lacy black crocheted cat ear headband so I set out on figuring out how to accomplish it and I think I did a pretty good job. I love them so much that I've decided to share them with ya'll!
