Crochet Minnie Mouse Ears Headband | Free Pattern + Video Tutorial

I have been wanting to wear Minnie Mouse ears for forever now; not because I am going on a trip to Disneyland (I wish), and not because it is for a Halloween costume (it’s literally January), but just because.

Honestly they are great for beginners and fun to make! I’m going to wear these all the time from now on because who doesn’t want to have mouse ears?!!


  • Lightweight acrylic yarn in Black and Red
  • 4 mm crochet hook
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Plain Black Headband
  • Toy stuffing

Stitches Used | Abbreviations

  • Magic Ring (MR)
  • Slip knot
  • Chain (ch)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Single crochet (sc)
  • Half double crochet (hdc)
  • Double crochet (dc)
  • double crochet increase (dc inc): 2dc in 1 st
  • * * – repeat sequence


  • The ch2 at the beginning of each round do not count as a dc.
  • Crochet into the full stitch (back loops and front loops); unless stated otherwise


  • Ears x2

Round 1: MR, ch1, 12dc in MR (12), sl st in the 1st dc

Round 2: ch2, *dc inc* all around (24), sl st

Round 3: ch2, *dc, dc inc* all around (36)

Round 4: ch2, *dc* all around (36)

Cut the yarn and finish off. Repeat the pattern twice to create one ear. Leave a long tail for one of the circles to stitch the two sides together

Align the two circles back-to-back and using the tail stitch the circles together by going through the stitches on both sides. Once you almost reach the end, stuff the ear with toy stuffing. Then stitch it closed and finish off.

  • Bow


Row 1: slip knot, ch21, *hdc* across (20)

Row 2-10: *hdc* all across (20)

Cut the yarn and finish off. Leave a long tail.

For the middle section of the bow:

Row 1: slip knot, ch5, *sc* across (4)

Row 2-12: *sc* all across (4)

Cut the yarn and finish off. Leave a long tail.

To create the bow shape, using the base rectangle, pinch it in the middle to form the bow shape, and using the tail of your yarn, stitch through the center from one side to the other to secure the shape.

Wrap the middle section of the bow around the center of the rectangle (aka were you stitched) and stitch it closed from the back.

  • Assembly

Using the tails of the ears, stitch them to the headband by going around the headband and then through the ears over and over. Make sure the ears are equally apart from the center.

Attach the bow to the center of the headband similar to what you did to the ears. Stitch the edges of the bow to the ears to secure them.

You can also use glue to secure eveything even more (optional)

Aaaaaand you’re done!
