Adding ear flaps? No problem here's how!
Nb-3 months: Row 1: hdc 8, ch 1, turn
Row 2: decrease first 2 sts, hdc next 4 sts, decrease last 2 sts, turn
Row 3: decrease first 2 sts, hdc next 2 sts, decrease last 2 sts
Row 4: decrease last 2 sts, fasten off.
Make the other ear 10-12 sts away

*When making larger flaps add more hdc to row 1, and keep decreasing every row.*
