This is my latest blog post for Crochet Spot! Read the whole article on
While this may be a controversial position, I believe the chihuahua is both the cutest and mightiest of dogs! I am excited to share the love by designing this cute chihuahua ears headband. The ears are constructed separately and then affixed to a store-bought, plastic headband. This could be the beginning of an easy Halloween costume.
Skill Level:

Finished Size: Each ear measures 3″ (8 cm) wide, 3″ (8 cm) tall

Medium Weight Yarn (small amounts of white and tan)
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

Gauge: Rows 1 – 4 in pattern measure 3″ (8 cm) wide, 3″ (8 cm) tall.

Crochet Pattern: Chihuahua Ears (make 2)

Row 1: With white, fdc 9 times, fhdc: 10 sts

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in first 3 sts, hdc in next 3 sts, tr in next st, dc in next st, tr in next st, 2 tr in last st: 11 sts
Finish off white yarn, and rejoin with sl st on other side of row 1 foundation stitches.

Row 3: ch 3, dc in next 8 sts, hdc in next st, sc in next st, do not turn, ch 1, work 2 sc along side of row 1: 12 sts
Finish off white yarn. Join tan yarn to the beginning of row 3 (the row just worked), with a sl st into the top of the beginning ch-3.

Row 4: ch 3, dc in next 2 sts, hdc in next 3 sts, sc in next 3 sts, sl st in next 4 sts, sl st in ch-1 of Row 2, picot, sl st in space before Row 1, sc in next 10 sts of Row 1: 24 sts

Finish off. Weave in ends. Using 18″ of white yarn, whip stitch ears to plastic headband. The thick, tan part should go on the inside. If desired, weave in thin craft wire to give ears movement.
