Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing.
Use the long end to whip stitch the bottom closed.
Place the ears on the front of the ear warmers. I placed them about 7 rows apart and 4 stitches from the top. I used stitch markers to keep the ears in place where I wanted them. Whip stitch them to the ear warmers.
Fasten off, weave in the ends.
