Line inner ear up with the bottom of the ear, then make sure there is a nice border of black around the inner ear. Sew the inner ear in. The fold one side or the other of the ear where the point on the end is in the middle of the ear, tac it down. Now sew onto your headband. Make 2.

You can easily make the ears smaller by using a less bulky yarn. Also feel free to use a thinner yarn that is a size 5 or 6 in bulk. If you want a tighter stitch keep the number of pegs just EW instead, and just make sure the decrease by 2 stitches on each side rather than 1.
