Cat Ear Headband [knitting pattern]

Halloween Cat Ear Headband [knitting pattern]
    I absolutely love Fall and one of the things that makes it so great is Halloween! I'm starting the Halloween DIYs early this year to give you guys plenty of time to make anything that should strike your fancy. I have a ton of costume and home decor DIYs planned and for this first time, I'm including Halloween knitting patterns into the mix!    The first project I'm sharing with you is this Cat Ear Headband knitting pattern. I think it's a fun take on the traditional faux fur kind. It's great for a low maintenance Halloween costume and it's comfortable enough to wear all day (perfect if you're dressing up for school or work). Best of all, this pattern is beginner friendly! If you can do a knit stitch and decrease, you got this one in the bag!
Supplies needed:
Size 8 straight knitting needles
Yarn needle
Headband
Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Black
Stuffing 
Knitting Pattern
Ears (make 4)  
Cast on 14 sts. Knit rows for 7 rows.It's great for a low
Decrease rows: Knit 2sts together at the end  of each row until you are left with 1 stitch. Bind off.

Turn the headband over and sew the ear on to the headband. This is done by sewing 2 stitches on opposite sides of the headband together.

DIY Velvet Choker

DIY Velvet Choker
There were so many great fashion trends in the 90s...slip dresses, flannel shirts, Dr Martens. My favorite 90s trend that's making a comeback is velvet chokers. They're really versatile and they add a touch of dark drama to any outfit. Also, they're pretty easy to DIY! DIY Velvet Choker Supplies
1/2 in velvet ribbon
Crimp closures (make sure these are the same with as the ribbon)
Jewelry pliers
Jump rings
Chain
Lobster clasp 
Needle & thread
Pearl charm
DIY Velvet Choker
Cut the ribbon to 11 inches. Place the end of the ribbon inside the crimp closure. Gently but firmly squeeze down the clasp with the jewelry pliers. You may have to do this a few times to get the closure to shut completely.
DIY Velvet Choker
Add the closure to the other end of the velvet ribbon.

Using the jewelry pliers, open the jump ring. Insert the ring through the hole on the lobster clasp and through the loop on the end of the crimp closure. Using the pliers, squeeze the jump ring closed, connecting the lobster clasp to the choker.
DIY Velvet Choker

I've been wearing this hairstyle a lot recently. It's relaxed and bohemian but the knotted detail adds some edge. This hair style consists of 2 Dutch braids and a double knot ponytail. To recreate this style you'll need:
2 hair elastics
Goody Spin pins
