Take six pieces of yarn together. Put hook through loop on the tip of the earflap, from the inside out. Pull a loop of the yarns through, and pull the tail end through the loop. With three groups of four strands of yarn, braid. When the braid is about 4 in long (or desired length,) tie a knot at the end, trim fringe to desired length.  Repeat for second earflap.
