Hey guys, it's Megan!
I've been seeing these crochet headphone covers all over TikTok this winter, and I think they're the cutest thing.
Most of the patterns I've seen have been for the new AirPods Max headphones, but personally I just couldn't justify buying new headphones when my Beats Studio 3 headphones still work fine (and were less than half the price 😅)
Since I couldn't find a crochet pattern for these headphones, I decided to make my own!
Note: this pattern is for the Beats STUDIO headphones, which are slightly larger. If you have the Beats SOLO headphones, here is a tutorial I found from another creator that might work better!
For this project you'll need:
If you prefer video instructions, you can watch them here!
If you prefer a written pattern, here it is!
(I'm using American terms)
ch - chain
slst - slip stitch
inc - work 2 stitches into the next stitch
hdc - half double crochet
trc - triple crochet
Headphone Covers (make 2)
start with a magic circle (or ch3, slst into the 1st ch to form a loop)
row 1 - ch1, hdc 10 into the circle. slst to close.
row 2 - ch1, hdc inc in each stitch (20 total) slst to close
row 3 - ch 1, hdc inc in each stitch (40 total) slst to close
How to modify for other round over ear headphones:
When you get to row 3, measure the circle up against your headphones. If it's as big as the flat outer circle on the headphones, skip to row 7. If it's not big enough, continue to row 4. Keep checking the size of the headphone cover after completing rows 4, 5, and 6. If it's big enough at any point, skip to row 7.
row 4 - ch1, hdc in each stitch around (40 total) slst to close.
row 5 - repeat row 4
row 6 - repeat row 4
row 7 - ch5. skip the ch closest to your hook, then hdc 4 in to the chain that you just made. hdc 39 (leave 1 stitch open at the end of the row)
row 8 - ch1, hdc in each stitch (43 total)
row 9 - ch 1, hdc in each stitch (43 total)
Weave in the ends of your yarn. Use a tapestry needle to weave an 18 inch piece of elastic bracelet cord in/out of the edge (see YouTube video)
You can decorate your headphone covers however you'd like - I made a heart using a 6.5 mm (K) crochet hook so it would be slightly larger. Honestly I don't love this method - I think next time I'd stick with the 4 mm (G) hook and make a heart with two rows instead. Here's a tutorial that explains how to crochet a heart really well!
Whatever decorative element you decide to make, make sure to leave a long tail of yarn at the end so you can sew it on to your headphone covers.
Here's what my headphone covers looked like when they were done!
I love these, I think they're so cute. Plus, I found that they even helped enhance the "noise cancelling" feature, which was a nice bonus!
They stay on the headphones really well while you're wearing them, but they can also be slipped off easily for charging.
