**To customize the length of the ears, you can add more of row 7, for longer floppy ears add 3-5 more rows of 12 DC** You will still decrease as it says in Rows 11-15

TRIMMING THE EARS

Starting at the bottom corner, where your beginning tail is, pull a loop of faux yarn or blanket fuzzy yarn through and SL ST, then working on the sides of your ear, SC in the chain spaces of each row. If your yarn is pretty thick, you may want to skip a space every few so that the fur trim lays flat. SC all the way around the ear from starting tail all the way back to that point and cut and pull through. Don’t weave your ends of the fur in, as you’re going to use these to help attach the ears to the hat. (be sure and leave a tail of 4-6” on both ends, this will help when attaching your ears to the hat)

Your ears are done….You now attach them to you hat!

ATTACHING THE EARS

Lay your hat flat with the seam in the middle of the back. Using stitch markers place your ears at about rows 2 and 4 on either side of the top center (see photo on hat pattern) Sew one of your blanket or fur yarn tails down through the hat at the stitch marker and back up. Weave the end through the side of where you trimmed the ear. Do this with both tails before sewing and weaving in your yarn tail.
