Dc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across, 5 dc in last chain
Continue to dc across the opposite side of chain, 5 dc in last chain, sl st to chain 2 space to join.

Ch1, single crochet in each dc space around the entire ear, sl st to join to ch 1 and tie off.
Fold the ear in half.
Sl st to join white yarn at a bottom corner of the ear.
Sl st the the ear together and tie off leaving a 12 inch tail. (Now, you have a straight edge at the bottom of the ear)
Take the pink oval and using a needle, sew onto the front of the ear using the leftover pink yarn tail.
Then, sew the ear onto the top of the hat using the white yarn tail.
I like to attach the flower to the hat using a decorative button
