Pikachu Ears – Pokemon Knitting Pattern

Recently in Pokemon Go, avatars could add Pikachu ears to their character. Clearly I needed to do this…. and also I needed these in real life. Afterall, Pikachu ears are cute, and they make such a simple costume addition.

Pikachu Ears

You will need:

  • Yellow DK yarn (less than a ball)
  • Black DK yarn (even less)
  • Headband (With teeth as pictured preferably)
  • Darning needle
  • 4mm needles
