So I have been making hats with the earflaps on them recently kind of following patterns but kind of just making it up as I go to...but the earflaps I have been making always end up more like triangles than rounded on the bottom like I want. Does anyone know how to fix that?

just stop decreasing as you go down to the part where you attach braids or strings. Say you started with 12 sts and crocheted straight 12 sts  then dec down to maybe 8 sts dec  then do 2 dec at each side on the same row  then sc around your hat and your done! just get the pic in your mind of what you want it to look like and work with it! you can adjust the sc to make it look right.
