this is how the top of your hat should look, working in a spiral from the beginning. 
 How to make and add the earflaps on a beanie hat

I start the earflaps at the best position on the hat, you will know by the shape of the hat to lay it flat and guess the best position, most patterns will say  
when making earflps.
fold your hat in half ,  using where you finished off as the CENTRE BACK.  mark exactly half way on either side of hat and use this as the starting stitch for your earflaps.

1. sc 11, ch 1 turn
2. sc2tog, 1 sc in next 7 stitches, sc2tog, ch 1 turn
3. sc across, ch 1 turn
4. sc2tog, 1 sc in next 5 stitches, sc2tog, ch 1 turn
5. sc across, ch 1 turn
6. sc2tog, 1 sc in next 3 stitches, sc2tog, ch 1 turn
7. sc across, ch 1 turn
8. sc2tog, 1 sc in next 1 stitches, sc2tog, ch 1 turn
9. sc across, ch 1 turn
10. sc2tog, fasten off

BORDER
Choose a complimentary colour and Single crochet all the way round your hat and earflaps.

How to crochet the Animal Ears (Make 2)
1. Make magic circle, sc 6 in circle (do not join)
2. Sc 2 in each stitch around
 (use stitch marker to mark your first stitch, and every first stitch in each round)
3. *2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next* repeat from * around
4-5. Sc across
Fasten off

Attach the Ears: sew into place and secure

Sew in all loose threads, and make tie cords, I usually use lengths of yarn twisted together, fold in half so they spiral together, and presto you have lovely attached baby hat cords.

People always ask me how to make this hat bigger or smaller, following the general increasing pattern, you can make hats to any size.

Baby Hat Sizes for Newborns and Toddlers
new-born  head circumference approx. 13 to 14 inches then the hat’s circumference should be at 11.5 to 13 inches. The height of the said hat should be around 5.5 to six inches.
A baby hat  for a toddler that is three to six months old will have a head circumference of about 14 to 17 inches and a height of 6.5 to seven inches.
Hats made for babies that are six to 12 months should have a head circumference of 16 inches to 19 inches and a height of 7.5 inches.
A pre-schooler's hat should have a head circumference of about 19" and a height of 8.5 inches.
