Sew the top side of kitty knitted hat using the tapestry needle. In my opinion the hat looks better when seam is on the right side of the hat but that’s only matter of taste.
Knitting kitty’s ears on the hat.
Turn inside out. Try to shape top two corners into ears and sew them as shown on the picture. Using this way, you will avoid visible seam on the right side. You may also pin ears if it’s hard to make them of the same shape.
I believe it’s also gonna be funny if you put hollow fiber inside the ears.
