How to Cut Ear Holes in a Skull Cap or Hood for Clowns
1. Put skull cap on, smooth it out, make sure it is even. Pull skull cap below your ear lobe.
2. Draw a straight line from top to bottom where your ear is attached to your head.
3. With a sharp scissors, cut a slit. Do NOT cut a hole.
4. Slide ear through the slit.
5. Keep cutting a little at a time until it is just right.
6. Don’t make it too big! Knit will expand and stretch more than what you’ve cut.
7. Seal the edges with a simple whip-stitch and a dab of Fray Check by Dritz.
