How to crochet 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 earflaps.

fold your hat in half, using where you finished off as the CENTRE BACK.
mark exactly halfway on either side of the hat and use this as the starting stitch for your earflaps.

Join Yarn and Chain 1

1. sc 11, ch 1 turn
2. sc2tog, 1 sc in next 7 stitches, sc2tog, ch 1 turn
3. sc across, ch 1 turn

Crochet hat BORDER
You can choose a complementary color or continue using your main color and 
Single crochet all the way around your hat and earflaps.
 (Make 2 extra sc stitches in each of the corners of the earflaps. )

How to crochet Animal Ears for a Baby Hat (Make 2)

1. Make a magic circle, sc 6 in the circle (do not join)
2. Sc 2 in each stitch around
 (use a 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.
