CH 1
Turn to where the point of the ear is pointing down and the flat side is up towards you.


Work 1 HDC in between each row of previous crochets, about 10 ST. (It doesn't have to be too exact, because we are only using these crochets to draw the ear in a bit.)




At the end of the row, CH 1, and connect to your beginning row with a SS.


Ch1 to secure. Leave a long tail for sewing to hat. cut string, and pull loop out to secure ear closed and form your tail.

If you have any frayed edges, sew them in before we crunch up the ear.

Thread tail into your tapestry needle.
Weave needle in between each of the 10 HDC's you made in the bottom row.

Pull yarn through -- Pull tight to achieve desired gathering of the ear.

Knot to secure. Leave tail to sew onto hat.

Repeat to make your 2nd ear.

Attach them in the desired location on your preferred hat style.



Feel free to add more or less stitches into your foundation chain and throughout the pattern to adjust size. This pattern is specifically to be used for a baby sized hat, about 3-6 months.
