I made a dino hat for my coworker's son's birthday last week. (I'm sure i've seen something like this online somewhere before.. but I can't recall where to give the credit too.) I made the main part of the hat on my KK and then I knitted the triangles by decreasing every second row. (I just k2tog) and I just stitched them on with a big needle. I learned to pick up stitches and I added the ear flaps and then the ties. I didn't use a pattern or anything - which seems to be a theme with my activites - I generally don't measure, follow patterns or recipes and I never plan anything out. lol!
