Cat Ear Hat [knitting pattern]

One of my most popular knitting patterns has been this cat ear hat inspired by Eugenia Kim I made a while back. I guess you guys are as crazy about cats as I am! This time I decided to create a pattern that was in heavier yarn with more pronounced ears. I hope you like it!

Pattern-
Cast on 48 stitches
Hat

Ears are knit in Garter Stitch. Cast on 5 sts. Increase 1 stitch each row (on the same side) until you have 10 stitches. Knit 2 rows. Decrease 1 stitch (on the same side as the increase sts.) until you are left with 5 sts. Bind off. Sew 2 ears together at the sides and then sew on to the top of the hat.
