Watch your tension on the ss. If you stitch too tightly it will make the band too tight. If you ss tightly, try going up a hook size to complete the ss.

-BEGIN WORKING ON ROWS FOR EAR FLAPS-

-BEGIN 1ST EAR FLAP WITH EITHER COLOR-

Row 1: stand sc in 7th sc of either color (you will work both colors the same way, JUST MAKE SURE COLOR A goes into the COLOR A and COLOR B goes into COLOR B), sc in next 2 sc, sc in next 3 ss, turn. (6) SEE PICTURE BELOW

Row 2: -FLO- ch 1, sc in each stitch across, turn (6)

 

Row 3: ch 1, sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc, sc2tog, FO. (4) SEE PICTURE BELOW

-REPEAT ROWS 1-3 FOR 2ND EAR FLAP WITH OTHER COLOR

 

Finishing: -PICK UP DROP LOOP OF EITHER COLOR FROM ROUND 12 (this step will be repeated with both colors, but the order is not important)- ss in next 7 stitches, ss around ear flaps placing 6 ss up the side of the ear flaps, 2 ss across the top of the ear flap, ss in each of the next 21 stitches (to the tip of the opposite ear flap), ch 20, skip 1st ch from hook and ss into next 19 ch, ss in next stitch, FO. SEE PICTURE BELOW

 

NOTE: Watch your tension on the ss. If you stitch too tightly it will make the band too tight. If you ss tightly, try going up a hook size to complete the ss.
