So everyone seems to think baby headbands need to have flowers and bows etc., but I thought we needed something a little more suited to our sabretooth tiger so I made her a kitty eared headband.  It was really easy just took awhile since I used fine yarn. 



 

Pattern:
Lace pattern adapted the Harmony Lace and Eyelets guide (Eyelet Lace Insertion pg 191).

Using 3.25mm needles and baby/sock weight yarn
Cast on 8 sts
1st Row: K1, [k2tog, yo] 3 times, k2
2nd row: Purl
3rd Row: K2, [k2tog, yo] twice, k2
4th Row: Purl

Repeat until work measures 14inches (or desired length) (14inches fit an infant/toddler)
Sew ends together.

For ears:
Mark centre top of headband.  Mark for ear placement on each side approximately 1.5inches from the centre point (you might want them closer together).
From that marker pick up 8 sts
K1, SSK, K to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1
Decrease 1 sts each side of each row until 2 sts remain
P2tog
BO
This just made one side of the ear.  Pick up 8 sts right adjacent to the ones you just picked up and repeat this process making sure the wrong sides are facing each other.  Once the second side of the ear is complete use a crochet hook to slip stitch the sides together using your yarn ends to lightly stuff the ear. 

Repeat at other marker to make the second ear. 

If you have any questions just let me know, I know my instructions aren't always the clearest.

I think a boy would look great with kitty ears.
