I’m knitting a baby’s hat that has ear flaps. Could you give me instructions how to start knitting them. How many stitches do I cast on to begin. The ties are already finished

Hi Norma,

Its depends on you yarn gauge. I think it's about 3-4 inches at the widest part. It's better for you to get a completed pattern for the hat than me telling you. There are many cute patterns you can choose from. Here is one that start out from a tie and up. Berroco.com baby hat

and you can check out many baby hat collection here too; Pinterest baby hat with flaps

I hope you find a pattern you like. Happy knitting!
Ratcha
