Chain 5, join

Round 1: CH 1, Work 10 HDC through the chain. We will be working the continual round.
Round 2: Work 1 SC, 1 HDC in the same stitch, Work 2 HDC in each stitch around. (20 HDC total)
Round 3: Work 1 HDC in the next stitch, work 2 HDC in the next stitch. (30 HDC total)
Round 4:  Work 1 HDC in each of the next 2 stitches, work 2 HDC in the next stitch. (40 HDC total)
Round 5: work 1 HDC in each of the next 3 stitches, work 2 HDC in the next stitch (50 HDC total)
Round 6-15: Work 1 HDC in each stitch around for the length.  


Slip stitch in the next stitch or skip a stitch and slip stitch.  You may have a slight raised bump from working the continual round.  You can work a decorative edging to cover the final round.  I recommend the reverse single crochet.


Ear
Chain 5 Join 
Round 1: Ch 1, Work 10 HDC through the chain, join.
Round 2: Chain 1, 2 HDC in each of the next 8 stitches. - 16 HDC total
Work a Reverse Single Crochet edging to the opposite side.


Sew the ears on between rounds 3-6. 


Earflaps
Row 1: Work 1 HDC in each of the next 9 stitches (9 HDC total)
Row 2-5: Work 1 HDC in each stitch across.  (9 HDC total)
You can leave the earflap long or give it a rounded edge.
Skip a stitch, work a slip stitch all the way across.  Cut a little extra yarn, pull the yarn through and give a tug to secure.  


Skip 10 stitch and attach the yarn for the earflap on the opposite side.  This will be the back opening between the earflaps.


Optional:  Yarn pom poms to attach to earflaps.
