Removable Crochet Cat Ears Pattern


| Original: April 15, 2023

Are your kids obsessed with Netflix's Gabby's Dollhouse?

No matter how hard you try to keep your kids off the TV, they will get exposed to the latest and greatest shows one way or another, like through their friends at school. But in all honesty, I do love the craftiness and imaginative play in Gabby's Dollhouse.

My girls love the show and I have watched a few clips with them a few times on YouTube every now and then. I particularly liked the video tutorials of someone recreating every room in Gabby's Dollhouse using everyday craft supplies.

While you can actually buy Gabby's dollhouse from the toy store, I would have loved to create a dollhouse from scratch (if I had the time).

So while I haven't participated in recreating her dollhouse (because that would be crazy), I did take on a smaller Gabby's Dollhouse project and crocheted a pair of Gabby's magical cat ears from the show for each of the girls!

All they have to do is put on their magical cat ears headband, sing their special song, and they can shrink down and play in Gabby's Dollhouse with Gabby!

  • sc inc - single crochet increase, 2 single crochets in one stitch
  • FLO - front loop only

Notes


  • I made this amigurumi doll using the "Yarn Under Single Crochet" technique. This technique makes the stitches tighter and appears more aligned.
  • I also used a half-color changing technique to achieve cleaner lines when changing colors from one row to another.
  • These cat ears are made to be removable so you can reuse your headband!
  • Each ear (from tip to base) measures approximately 7.5 cm (almost 3 inches)

Assembly


Stuff the triangle ears with some poly-fil and then use the ends of the yarn to sew up the bottom so they don't come out. If you want fluffy ears, you can use a slicker brush to brush them out like I did with the Red Panda/Fox ears that I made not too long ago.

Then use the ends of the pink inner ear and sew it to the triangle ears.

Attach the base sleeve/attachment rectangular piece for the bottom of the ears.

Feed the headband through the base sleeve/attachment. I only had black headbands at home at the time of making Gabby's cat ears, but in the show the headband is white. So if you want to stay true to the show, use white headbands!

If all is attached properly, the crochet cat ears will sit on the headband with no need for additional glue. And in the future when they grow out of the show, you can remove those cat ears and re-use the headbands!
