Owl Hats

I've never actually used a pattern for these but they are fairly simple to do
Owl hat

Main hat
make a ch long enough to go around whatever head you are making for and join to a circle.
Sc around as many row to get the hat long enough to be just at the top of the person's ears.
Flatten hat and sc through both thicknesses
for ear flaps go back to the first row and figure out where the ears are, then just sc 12 and then an even row, then dec on the 1st 2sc and last 2 sc, then an even row and keep doing it until there are only 4 sc. F/O

More requests

                                               This set was just for fun
I've been asked by a friend to make some hats and headbands for her grandchildren, The first was the hello kitty hat for a birthday. When her kids saw the hats I made for 2 of her grandkids they started asking for more. I am now making 2 more hello kitty hats, 2 hello kitty headbands, 1 pink and green owl hat, and 2 more hello kitty dolls. That's just for starters, they are making wish lists for Christmas now too. On top of this I am making a bacon scarf and egg hat set for my daughter's boyfriend. Here's what I've finished so far, the owl hat and the bacon scarf. I'm almost done with another hello kitty hat and the egg hat
