If you have a doll or some round object fit the hat on that. Position the ears where you want and pin it in place. A little toward the front would be ideal. Then sew it down with the yarn tail left when you fastened off. Now position the bow in the middle of the ears with the broader row (the fasten off row) up and pin in place. Sew it down too with matching thread.
